Participants in the shadow program committee must follow the
ethical standards of the peer-review process.
This includes, but is not limited to, treating submissions as
confidential and not utilizing information from submissions in their
own research. We will discuss the ethics of the peer-review process
during the seminar. Violations of peer-review ethical standards is
equivalent to academic misconduct.
Here is a related doc:
All paper summaries and reviews must consist of a student's
original work. Unattributed copying of material from the papers being
discussed or other sources is plagiarism as will be treated as such.
There will be a strict no bullshit policy. If you say this work has
been done before, you better be able to back it up. If you think that
a paper is wrong about something, explain why and what is right.
Finding strengths is much harder than exposing weaknesses, make sure
you take the time to do the former.
