Summary of Action Items for Advisory TPC member
- By Sept 15, 2013: Please update your "Topics of Interest", “Methodologies”, "Conflict of Interest" on EDAS.
- They will not be assigned any papers in the initial paper assignment phase (which will be done in Aug.-Sep. timeframe).
- Around Oct. 1st, 2013 when the TPC member reviews are due, Advisory TPC members will be assigned papers that are still missing reviews.
- The target is to assign a small number of papers to Advisory TPC members, with the stipulation that the reviews be completed in 5 days; these members should also participate in their respective on-line decisions and if need be, write a TPC Lead summary if the corresponding TPC Lead member is defaulting.
- Advisory TPC members must closely adhere to these deadlines, given that there is not much margin for delay.
- The ATPC Chairs will examine TPC summaries and reviews around Oct. 16th. They can seek additional reviews for some of the papers (from Advisory TPC members and other external reviewers).
- Advisory TPC members must closely adhere to these deadlines, given that there is not much margin for delay. For borderline papers, the Advisory TPC members can focus on the main controversial issues raised in the TPC member reviews, rather then submit a full detailed review.
- The Area TPC Chairs will make their final recommendation to the TPC Co-Chairs by Oct. 30, 2013.
