The International Panel is a group of six to nine international experts selected from around the world to provide an impartial assessment on the technical merit of the shortlisted papers.
Each of the International Panel members serves for a maximum of three consecutive years, but can be selected to serve another, non-consecutive period. The Chair is appointed by CBMM and is not governed by the three year rule.
