I would like to relax the blind review procedure of abstracts and letting the reviewer see not only the abstract's title and text but also authors name and affiliation. I did not find a simple way to do that.
I see two possibilities:
1) editing the submission.tpl file for adding the authors name and affiliation (e.g., adding a "$submission->getPresenterString()");
2) changing the way reviewers can view the submission Metadata: actually I noticed that clicking on "view Metadata" as a reviewer I cannot see the entire submission Metadata nor the text of the abstract (which was visible in the reviewer assignement page). I see just this:
Title and Abstract
Title...............This is the title of the abstract (i.e., the correct title)
i.e., "Abstract" does not show the actual abstract's text but just the word "array". I verified that this is done also if the reviewer is, e.g., the conference director. Is this normal or do I make something wrong?
Could you please give some input on that?
Thanks in advance,
