If you are already signed up, for instance when you are also a Theme Chair, then please email the paper ID of the paper you are to review to program@icorr2007.org.
    • After ‘signing up’ once, you can ‘sign in’ at any time using the username and password you just selected.

Instructions for Theme Chairs and Special Session Chairs

First of all, thank you very much for your time and effort and your commitment to ICORR2007. To get started, please sign in to the OpenConf system through http://openconf.icorr2007.org/openconf.php and Sign in (not ‘Sign up’) using the username and password you selected earlier while signing up.

Please note: You will find a screen that is subdivided in a Reviewer part (the top section) and an Advocate part (the bottom section). As Theme Chair or Special Session Chair you will be regarded by the system as “advocate”. Therefore, the bottom section is relevant for your primary task, while the top section is optional for you.

Step 1: Find, as soon as possible, two reviewers for each paper who are able to perform the review by March 25, 2007. Each of you has been assigned up to 8 papers. You are requested to find at least 2 reviewers for each paper. You can recruit these from your personal contacts or from submitting authors or otherwise. If necessary, you can also review papers yourself. If, for whatever reason, you are unable to find suitable reviewers, please let us know immediately (program@icorr2007.org).

Step 2: Ask your reviewers to sign up and send a list relating reviewers and paper IDs by taking the following steps:

  • OpenConf does not allow you to sign up reviewers. Therefore you need to ask your reviewers to sign up in OpenConf following the Instructions for Reviewers at the top of this page.
  • Furthermore, OpenConf does not allow you to assign papers to your reviewers. Therefore the Instruction for Reviewers ask them to indicate the paper ID’s assigned to them in the “Comments to Chair” box. Please remind them of this. In addition, please send a list relating reviewers to paper IDs to program@icorr2007.org, to facilitate assigning papers to the right reviewers. If the reviewer to whom you are assigning a paper has already signed up, for instance as a Theme Chair, then please email the paper ID and the reviewer’s name to program@icorr2007.org.
