  3. Selection Process. The Program Committee Members for the COMSOL Conference Boston 2019 (collectively, the “Judges”) shall review each abstract and score the work using the Judging Criteria described below and identify the top ten (10) abstracts for papers with the highest scores. The Program Committee will consist of approximately 30-40 individuals selected by Sponsor based on their education and experience in their respective scientific fields in which the COMSOL Multiphysics® software is used. Those individuals will be identified on Sponsor’s website at https://www.comsol.com/conference/call-for-papers/boston. Then, a subcommittee made up of five (5) Program Committee members, shall review the final papers for the top ten (10) abstracts identified and shall select the top three (3) final papers using the respective abstract scores assigned by the Program Committee Members and their own application of the Judging Criteria to the final papers. The author(s) of the final papers selected as the winners will be announced at the COMSOL Conference 2019 Boston on October 4, 2019 at the Boston Marriott Newton, 2345 Commonwealth Avenue, Newton, MA 02466.
