The following guidelines apply to delegation of reviews. In principle, we strongly discourage delegation unless there is a compelling need such as a very qualified reviewer for a given paper.
- Lead TPC papers (typically 5): NO DELEGATION. We expect the TPC member to read the paper and write the review and actively participate in the post-review on-line discussion phase. Please note that you may not delegate the regular review for your Lead TPC papers.
- One-third of regular reviews (about 5 out of 12-15): Delegate to qualified researcher via EDAS, but *NOT* graduate students. Delegation must be done within 2 weeks of papers assigned to the TPC member (by September 8, 2013). The TPC member must also follow up with their delegates to finish their reviews, and oversee the quality. Please inform the delegate that they are also co-responsible with you for actively participating in the online discussion phase.
