Per the event announcement (link below), the ISU will test a new judging policy at Nebelhorn this year. Excerpt from the announcement:
ISU Test policy:
Two of the skating disciplines (Men and Ice Dance) are to be judged by the panel formed in the way described below:
The two judging panels will be selected by the Technical Committees and will be trained at a one-day seminar before the start of the event.
The panel will consist of 12 judges
GOE is evaluated by 5 judges
Four of these 5 Judges also evaluate one component different from the components evaluated by the other of these 4 Judges
The 5 components are also evaluated by the remaining 7 judges
- Each of these 7 judges is evaluating only 3 components
- The assignment of these components is done so that each component is finally evaluated with 5 scores.
The final result is calculated according to the current ISU system using the trimmed mean of the GOE and components scores.
Prior to the test a questionnaire will be prepared by the committees to evaluate the opinions of the judges used for the test. The success of the test will also be measured by the opinions of TC Members and Sports Directors and a final report will be sent to the ISU Council.
Page 7 of the Nebelhorn announcement
has a chart showing a sample configuration of how individual judges would take on different sets of responsibilities.
Thx to Mathman for typing out a version of the Nebelhorn PDF's chart that is compatible with the limitations of GS formatting. From the thread in The Edge:
