Choosing primary and secondary topics
If you're reading this, then more than likely you are a reviewer for a conference - how nice of you! This article will walk you through the process that you need to complete before you can begin completing your reviews.
Using the correct email address, when you first log in you will be asked to choose your primary and secondary topics based on your expertise.
Step 1) Setting up your reviewer profile
When you log into the Ex Ordo system for your conference, you will see a card on your dashboard which will guide you through the process of setting up your reviewer profile. Click on Choose your topics to start the process.
You may also be prompted to submit a paper to the conference (which may or may not be optional depending on the conference).
Step 2) Updating your affiliation and country
If you select to choose your topics as a reviewer you will first need to input your affiliation and country.
Once you select Done, you will be brought to the topics workflow where you can choose your topics.
Step 3) Choose Topics
When you select Done, the topics workflow will open and you will be asked to choose your topics. Here first you can click on the Choose Primary Topics button at the top of the page and add the topics you are an expert in. The topic that you chose here will be used to assign the right submissions to you.
Once you click on the Choose Primary Topic button, you'll be presented with the following page. Here, you just need to click on your preferred topic. Once it's selected, you'll see that it changes to a nice green color. Once you've made your selection, you can click on the little X in the corner to back out of the primary topic selection, and advance to the secondary topics page.
On this page, click on the green Choose Secondary Topics button. Here, you'll be presented with a similar page to choose your secondary topic from. In this case if you were to choose the same topic as you've already added as a primary one, the system will automatically update it for you.
Here you can choose as many secondary topics as you'd like. Once you're happy with your choices (which will be highlighted in green), you can click on the X in the top right hand corner to go back to the previous page.
You can go back and change any of these primary or secondary topics now by clicking on the green buttons again. You can use them to also review your topic choices before you finalise it. Once you are happy with everything, then all you have to do is to click on Done and voila, you are ready to start the review process!
