General Chair/Co-Chair

I AM IN STAGE:

Initial Setup

What are my current duties?

In Confy’s Initial Setup stage, responsibilities of General Chairs include:
– Consulting deadlines with the Conference Manager
– Appointing the Program Committee Chair
– Consulting the Program Committee Chair on the format of the conference, i.e. how many Technical Tracks the conference will comprise
– Connecting the Conference Manager with the Web Chair in order to manage the conference website

What are Technical Tracks?

Technical Tracks are dedicated to main paper submission. Any number of Technical Tracks is allowed per conference. If there is more than on Technical Track in a conference, all Technical Tracks – Deadlines
– Paper Types
– Review Model

For that reason, all Technical Tracks move through stages in Confy simultaneously. Changing the conference stage therefore affects all Technical Tracks, while non-Technical Tracks remain unaffected.

The interdependency of Technical Tracks helps maintain a steady flow in conference production and creates fair conditions for all submitting authors. It is therefore compulsory and cannot be overriden.

What are non-Technical Tracks?

Non-Technical Tracks include:
– Workshop Tracks
– Demo Tracks
– Poster Tracks
– Invited Tracks
– Other Tracks

These Tracks are managed independently of Technical Tracks by their respective Track Chairs.
Each non-Technical Track can follow its own Deadlines, Paper Types and Review Model after consultation with the General Chairs, Program Committee Chairs, and the Conference Manager.

What are Workshop Tracks?

Workshop Track is a type of non-Technical Track typically dedicated to a Workshop. Any number of Workshop Tracks is allowed per conference.

What are Poster Tracks?

Poster Track is a type of non-Technical Track typically dedicated to Posters. Only one Poster Track is allowed per conference.

What is a Poster?

answer

What are Invited Tracks?

Invited Track is a type of non-Technical Track typically dedicated to Invited Papers. An Invited Track will only be visible to external user who receive its specific link.

Please make sure that you create a shadow track for every Track (Technical and non-Technical). A shadow track should have the same name as its parent track. When creating an Invited Track, please make sure to select the “Invited Track” type from the drop-down list in the Create Tracks interface, and that you tick an “Invited Authors Only” box underneath.

The Track Chair appointed to a shadow track should be the same as in its parent track. This way, all Track Chairs will have a convenient way of organizing Invited Sessions in their tracks to create a more compelling program, elevating the entire conference.

Papers submitted to an Invited Track are automatically in a fast track, requiring a single review. Since Invited Tracks are non-Technical Tracks, they do not need to comply with Deadlines and Properties of Technical Tracks.

What is an Invited Paper?

answer

How many Tracks should a conference have?

Any number of Technical Tracks is allowed per conference. It is recommended to consider whether the scope of a conference is broad enough to warrant several specialized Technical Tracks, or narrow enough to warrant a single Technical Track.
Any number of Workshop Tracks is allowed per conference.
Only one Demo Track is allowed per conference.
Only one Poster Track is allowed per conference.
Only one Invited Track is allowed per conference.

Who manages Tracks?

*All* Tracks – Technical and non-Technical, should be created by Program Committee Chairs.
Paper Types and Review Model of all Technical tracks should be set up by Program Committee Chairs.
Track Chairs for all Tracks – Technical and non-Technical – should be appointed by Program Committee Chairs.
Deadlines, Paper Types and Review Model of non-Technical Tracks should be set up by their respective Track Chairs.
Stages of Technical Tracks are moved by Program Committee Chairs.
Stages of non-Technical Tracks are moved by their respective Track Chairs.

Do we need a Track Chair if we only have one Technical Track?

If there is a single Technical Track, the role of a Track Chair is typically filled by the Program Committee Chair. In this case, it is required that Program Committee Chair appoints themselves the role of a Track Chair.

How and when does the Submission open?

Submission in Technical Tracks opens by moving conference into Paper Submission stage in Confy. This is possible only after all items in the Initial Setup have been completed by the General Chair and Program Committee Chair.
Moving the conference stage is the responsibility of Program Committee Chairs.

Paper Submission

What are my current duties?

In the Paper Submission stage, Confy does not require any actions from General Chairs.
However, General Chairs need to make sure that the Submission Deadline is set up appropriately. While it is generally not recommended to extend the Submission Deadline, Organizing Committees are allowed to do so maximum two times, for the total duration of no more than 30 days.

How and when does Submission close?

Submission closes by moving the conference stage in Confy from Paper Submission to Submission Verification. This is typically done by the Program Committee Chair.

How can we extend the Submission Deadline?

You may extend the Submission Deadline by clicking on Deadlines in the top row of the conference dashboard in Confy, changing the date next to Submission Deadline to your new desired date, and clicking Save.
Please note that it is generally not recommended to extend the Submission Deadline.
Organizing Committees are allowed to extend the Submission Deadline maximum two times, for the total duration of no more than 30 days.

Can we start validating papers while submission is still open?

Since authors are allowed to edit their submissions until the submission deadline, it is not possible to begin processing submissions until after the submission deadline. You will be able to do so immediately after – in the Submission Verification stage.
If the conference has multiple Technical Tracks, please note that they all comply to the same submission deadline, and these Tracks therefore cannot be processed separately.

Can we open a Late Track?

In order to provide fair conditions to all submitting authors, creation of Late Tracks to supplement main paper submission after the submission deadline is not permitted.

How do I invite papers to an Invited Track?

Every Track (including yours) should have a shadow track with the same name, but of the Invited Track type. These tracks should be exclusively used by invited authors. If you don’t see an Invited Track version of your Track or if you don’t have Track Chair privileges in this Track, please contact the Program Committee Chair of your conference.

If you don’t see an Invited Track version of your Track or if you don’t have Track Chair privileges in this Track, please contact the Program Committee Chair of your conference.

 

Invited Tracks are only visible to the Program Committee and to users who receive a direct link to it. Therefore, if you wish to invite an author to submit a paper to your track, you will need to send them a direct link to that track in Confy. To get the correct link, navigate to your conference’s dashboard in Confy and click on your desired Invited Track from the Tracks list. Once you do this, the heading of the page should say [CONFERENCE] [YEAR] › [TRACK] (Invited Track).

 

The URL that you need to send to the invitee will look something like this: http://confy.eai.eu/app#conftrack-overview/track/2016/cid/52546. Numbers in your URL will be different from the ones in the example. After logging in, the invitee will be able to use the link to directly access the submission form to the Invited Track.  It is important to note that the track needs to be in the Paper Submission stage in order for this to work, and once you close submission and move the stage forward to Submission Verification, it will not be possible to submit additional papers.

What are my duties?

– Accepting the Review Invitation- Accepting the Review Invitation

– Completing and submitting the review form by the Review Delivery Deadline The Review Management stage will be closed automatically by Confy on the day of the Overall Review Deadline (typically 7 days after the Review Delivery Deadline) in order to observe the Notification deadline, and the conference will move to the Decision & Notification stage.

Missing Reviews and Recommendations may still be delivered in the Decision & Notification stage at a CARE Index penalty.

It is imperative that Reviewers deliver their Reviews by Review Delivery Deadline, as the assigned Program Committee Members are required to write a Recommendation before the Overall Review Deadline based on the Reviews they receive. Please note that your review will be evaluated by the a ssigned Program Committee Member on the basis of its quality, completeness, clarity, and timeliness in order to highlight the best Reviewers, and to improve review processes in Confy in the future.

Also note that Program Committee Members have the right to mark a delivered review as non-admissible if they identify unprofessional verbage, evident bias, or total irrelevance in the Review. Reviews marked as non-admissible will be discarded.
