Track chair: Accepting and rejecting submissions

Once all reviews are completed, you will be able to make a decision on each of the submissions. When you assign a decision, the author cannot see it before you finish (publish) your review. This means you change decisions multiple times on a submission before notifying authors.

Before starting to make decisions, the conference organizers must configure the decision types available to you. 

Step 1) Find the submissions to decide on

On your dashboard, find the Decisions Overview card and select Make Decisions. You'll be brought directly to the list of submissions where you can make your decisions. A small drop down box will become visible in the corner next to each submission with completed reviews.

Step 2a) Making a decision on one submission

Click on this drop down to the right of the submission title and choose one of the options there. There will be options to accept (e.g. as poster presentation, oral presentation or any other format you configured previously). You can also choose your customised declined options.

Step 2b) Deciding on multiple submissions at once

You can select the same decision for multiple submissions in the list by selecting them using the checkboxes and using the filters, as in the picture below:

Step 3) Using other criteria to make decisions

You can also filter your decisions by General or Acceptance score. To learn more about this click  here.
