Special Session Organizers
Special Session Management

All the organizers have full control of the manuscripts submitted to their special session.

  • Click on the title of an article in the list
  • Choose one of the option in the Chair Options

 

If you choose the first one a list of possible reviewers will appear (you can invite one or more reviewer clicking on the button );

if you choose the second one a list of all the invited reviewer will appear,

the third one, instead, allows an organizer to invite a reviewer by email.

Why I can see only x papers in the Special Session Area? I think there are more than x

According an IEEE policy to prevent "Conflict of Interest" a special session organizer can not see and manage the papers of the other special session organizers in the same special session.

In these particular case a user with more privileges (special session chair/publication chair) has the task to manage these papers.

So if you do not receive an email please check your spam folder in the registration email.

If you have a spam-filter, please add to the exception list  the mail address: submit@iecon2016.org
