I believe that a roundtable chair at an upcoming conference does not like my research. I would like to submit an abstract in response to the call for papers.

Does the roundtable chair play a part in the selection process, or is it solely the task of the conference committee?

  • I've given the question a big overhaul to focus on what I think is the essence of your question, but removes the stuff that was probably going to get it closed. Feel free to edit further – Jeromy Anglim Jul 11 '16 at 2:57
  • To the OP: You should thank @JeromyAnglim. I was going to vote to close this question because It had too much personal offence in it. Now, I vote to "Leave Open". – scaaahu Jul 11 '16 at 3:20
  • I will accept the changes but to clarify, the issue is that my research treads on the chair's turf. – DistractedPhD Jul 11 '16 at 3:25
  • Upon some reflection, you are both right. Neutrality and clarity: my weaknesses; hence, status as an "emerging scholar". – DistractedPhD Jul 11 '16 at 3:28
  • Some conferences accept all submissions. – Anonymous Physicist Jul 11 '16 at 6:30

There is no way to anticipate if a roundtable chair will be on the conference's program committee without more information. Most conferences list their program committee on the conference website.
