Posting Completed Panel Papers

Are you a Director, Presenter, Reviewer or Conference Manager in need of help? Want to talk to us about workflow issues? This is your forum.

Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OCS from an everyday user's perspective: conference managers, presenters, and directors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OCS and how the workflow works, as well as specific function- or user-related questions.

What to do if you have general, workflow or usability questions about OCS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OCS basics to system administration and code development, and we encourage you to read it.

2. take a look at the tutorials. We will continue to add tutorials covering OCS basics as time goes on.

3. Post a question. Questions are always welcome here, but if it's a technical question you should probably post to the OCS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OCS Development subforum.

Posting Completed Panel Papers

Postby JCW_0618 » Tue Apr 21, 2009 5:13 am

Forgive me for posting what I fear is an ignorant question.

How do I allow authors to post papers if they submitted a Full Proposal as part of a panel submission? Only the individual who submitted the panel proposal seems able to upload a completed paper. Can they upload multiple papers on behalf of the other panelists? If so, will those papers appear under the author's own name?
(I have had no problems allowing single-papers to be posted.)

I am running the conference through the SFU servers so I am constrained by the software as it currently appears to me.

Thanks for any help!

Hi John,

Only the submitting author can submit presentation material (unless they share their username/password, of course); and currently they can only upload one submission document per panel presentation, although they can upload supplementary materials. I would suggest, as a general policy, that you ask your submitting author to submit all panel presentations at once if possible (they can upload a .zip file, or a whole PDF if the documents are PDF); it would then be up to your layout editors to split/shape/reupload the documents as individual galleys for that particular submission to display on-site.
