HOW-TO: Proceeding Editor - Configure
Not all conferences will utilize a Proceeding Editor.
After the paper decision-making phase, Chairs enable the papers for camera-ready submissions. They also may post questions and set other requirements for the Proceeding Editor. Chairs can optionally enable the IEEE Copyright submission. Once that is done, the Proceeding Editor will take over the responsibilities of the camera-ready phase of the conference.
The responsibilities of the Proceeding Editor are only to facilitate the camera-ready submissions.
Papers are enabled for Camera-ready submission.
If the conference is to use the IEEE eCF Copyright transfer, it must be registered with IEEE beforehand.
For a multi-track conference you will need to do this for each track you want camera-ready enabled.
- Go to the Settings tab, select 'Deadline' and enable the Camera-Ready Submission status. Set the date appropriately. Click 'Save Changes.'
- From the Settings tab, click 'Features.' In the 'Welcome Messages and Instructions' field, enter the information the Authors need to know about the camera-ready-submission.
- In the ‘Camera Ready Submission File’ section, set the maximum and minimum number of files, the formats accepted and the maximum file size.
- In the ‘IEEE Copyright Requirement’ section, enable the checkbox, enter the ‘Publication Title’ and ‘5-digit conference ID.’
In the 'Other' section, enable the settings you want:
'Require reproducibility check list'
'Do not allow editing authors'
'Allow meta-reviewer to view submission'
'Allow senior meta-reviewer to view submission'
Click 'Save changes.'
It is here where you would ask questions for the Authors to answer.
- From the Settings tab, click 'Forms.' Click the 'Add New Question' button.
- In the ensuing popup, enter the 'Title' and 'Text.' Then enter if it is a required question and the type of question. Click 'Save changes.'
