You are requested to update your topics of interest for INFOCOM 2014 and your conflicts of interest information on EDAS after accepting the invitation to serve on the TPC by following the instructions below.
You can update your topics of interest by logging into http://edas.info/ using your login email address and your EDAS password. Then click on "My TPCs" tab. You will see a list of conferences in which you serve as a TPC member. In the row for "INFOCOM 2014", please click on the cell in the "Interests (edit)" column. The link is usually set as "undefined", by default. In the subsequent screen, you will see that you are listed as "neutral" to all the topics for the conference.
Please select at least eight (8) topics and click on the corresponding menu buttons in the "of interest" column. Similarly, please select as many topics which are not "of interest" to you. Please be sure to click on "Change topics of interest" button at the bottom of the page to update your topics of interest. Below the list of topics, you will see a list of methodologies. Please choose at least two (2) methodologies and click on the corresponding menu buttons in the "of interest" column.
It is critical that you update your topics and methodologies of interest before the review assignment, in order to make sure that you have the best chance to receive papers which fall in your topics and methodologies of interest.
You can update your conflicts of interest (COI) information by logging into http://edas.info/ using your login email address and your EDAS password. Then click on "My Profile" tab. On the first line, please click on the link listed as "conflicts of interest". In the subsequent screen, you will see a list of individuals with whom you have identified Conflicts-of-Interest.
Please note that in EDAS, "Your initial list of conflicts-of-interest consists of individuals having the same email domain, the same name or those that have co-authored EDAS-registered papers with you. You can provide either the name of the organization, the name of an individual, or an email domain, or several of these." Please be sure to identify all individuals with whom you have conflicts of interest, paying particular attention to potential INFOCOM 2014 authors and TPC members.
We greatly appreciate your efforts in updating this information in EDAS so that we may avoid unnecessary changes to review assignments later, a time-consuming process.
