OCS submission review process

Postby dschafer » Fri Dec 11, 2009 11:58 am

Our group might get 500 submissions for 30 presentation slots. A typical reviewer might get 80 proposals to consider. With that volume it's helpful to consider papers in context with other submissions. After the submission deadline our homegrown solution notifies reviewers of all the papers assigned to them. Reviewers are given a fixed number of 'points' to allocate among the most worthy papers. The system keeps track of the highest scoring papers so that they can be put on the program.

I'm considering how we might make our process work on OCS. Are there any efforts underway to implement such a modification to OCS? Others must have confronted this type of transition before. I'd like to hear about what you tried and how it worked. I'd like to avoid having to sell a group of academics on changing their process.

Thanks in advance,
David Schafer

Hi David,

I haven't heard of such a scheme being added to OCS, but it definitely sounds interesting. Do you have development resources to put towards this? If so, please feel free to ask for pointers, advice, etc. on the forum.
