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.

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.
