Every January, we hope to announce the names of three EVEs of the Year. These will be selected from the events on the calendar for the previous year. Criteria for selection will include balance across keynotes and panels, as well as plenaries, balance of local and non-local speakers and, in the case of ‘near parity’ of plenary line-ups, those that favour either women, ‘non-native’ speakers or both. More details will be published nearer the time.
As a voluntary initiative, we have no funding. Therefore, at the time of writing, there are no plans for a physical ‘award ceremony’. If this should change, we will post information here.
