Contact information

CAESAR selection decisions will be made on the basis of published analyses. If submitters disagree with published analyses then they are expected to promptly and publicly respond to those analyses. Any attempt to privately lobby the selection-committee members is contrary to the principles of public evaluation and should be expected to lead to disqualification.

A submitter who believes that contacting the committee is required should send email to the CAESAR secretary explaining the issue.
