track director as meta-reviewer?!

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.

track director as meta-reviewer?!

We would like to use Open Conference Systems for our upcoming conference.
The question is if the system supports meta-reviewers. What we would need is a group of meta-reviewers that have groups of reviewers assigned to them. Yet, a reviewer can only be assigned to one meta-reviewer. The meta-reviewer can have multiple reviewers, but should only be allowed to see/manage his group of reviewers and their deadlines. Is this something OCS supports? Would it be possible to solve this through tracks and track directors (by creating tracks and assigning them after the papers have been submitted)? I couldn't find this information elsewhere, so I'd appreciate your help!
Thank you,

Hi Marlies,

Yes, you should be able to use Track Directors as meta-reviewers, but you should definitely try this out yourself first before settling on OCS. We have an OCS demo at http://pkp.sfu.ca/ocs2/demo/testdrive/. You can login with the admin account: username -- admin; password -- testdrive.

A couple of general notes: you can't assign/individualize groups of reviewers against track directors, but you *can* list areas of review interest per reviewer, which track directors can then see and select against. If you assign track directors to a given track, they will be automatically assigned any submissions that are submitted to that track, but you don't necessarily need to do this -- you can leave track directors unaffiliated with tracks, and have a director assign submissions. And once a reviewer is assigned to a submission, his/her name is listed as assigned, and is unable to be reassigned until free.
