National security remedies among topics at surveillance confab

y zip through control check points without having to stop to present identification by using a unique biometric that is difficult to fake the iris. Lockheed Martin will concentrate on airborne surveillance primarily used in military operations to identify targets from manned and unmanned aerial platforms.

In addition to moderating the government panel, Pavlidis will lead the discussion about the "open review" experiment, a concept being introduced for the first time this year at the AVSS conference. This is a radical innovation in the scholarly review process aimed at addressing some of the issues facing the traditional "closed review" system in the jurying process for accepting papers in scholarly journals.

In the "open review" system both the authors and the reviewers know the names of each other, and they communicate openly. Thus, the result is not a one-time verdict from an anonymous higher authority who cannot be debated, as with the "closed review" system. Instead, this proposed open concept is a dialectic process under the moderation of an editor.

"This 'open review' experiment would have far-reaching repercussions in the academic publishing mechanism of the future," Pavlidis said. "Under the new system, reviews have the potential to become more thorough and civil, as referees would need to stand behind their names. Additionally, researchers may become more productive, as they would receive better feedback."

Another innovation to be discussed during this session is the concept of publishing an eponymous commentary paper along with an accepted article. This critique paper would document the positive and negative points of the article as seen by the reviewer. Pavlidis and his colleagues believe the transparency and rigor of these processes ultimately would benefit research.

In addition to leading figures, many young researchers are making their mark after clearing a competitive review process. The
