The Jean-Paul Dionne Symposium is an annual research conference organized by graduate students for graduate students.

The Jean-Paul Dionne Symposium Organizing Committee is looking for volunteers to help with abstract peer review. You do not need to have previous experience in peer review to volunteer!

Peer review is a great opportunity to share knowledge with your colleagues and enhance your academic resume. 

How does it work?

Peer reviewers will need to fill out a form indicating their areas of expertise and how many abstracts they wish to review. Then, at the beginning of February, the Committee will assign 300-word abstracts to each reviewer with a two-week deadline. For each abstract they review, our peer reviewers will be provided a simple online evaluation grid with straightforward criteria. 

Do not hesitate to contact us at if you have any questions.

Thank you for supporting your colleagues,

The JPDS Organizing Committee
