I had set up a conference that accepted Abstracts only. I should have set it up for
Abstracts followed by Papers. We have already gone through the abstract review
I then changed the conference type to "Abstracts followed by Papers" in Conference
Setup. But I do not have the "Invite Presentation" option under the abstract review page
only the "Accept Submission". I want to allow authors to move to the Paper upload
stage, but can't figure out how to do it. I suspect the problems are due to the fact
that I set up the conference incorrectly originally. Can someone help or have I messed
this up beyond recovery?
The conference is here http://eecs.evansville.edu/mescon
p.s. Somehow one paper (the first one in the In Review list) has moved to the paper review
stage and under abstract review the director decision is "Invite Presentation". I do not have
this option under abstract review for any of the other papers. I do not know if something I
did to this particular paper caused this to happen or it just changed accidently somehow
because it is the first one in the list of papers.
