Please read the following if you are a Backup TPC member for INFOCOM
2011. Please also read the Guidelines
for TPC Members. If you have been assigned a paper to review by a TPC
member for the INFOCOM 2011 conference, please read the Guidelines
for Reviewers instead.
A small number of INFOCOM 2011 TPC members will be designated as
"Backup TPC" members. The target estimate is to have 25 such
members. Their assignments/responsibilities will be as follows.
Summary of Action Items for Backup TPC members
- By Oct. 1, 2010: Please update your "Topics of Interest" and
"Conflict of Interest" on EDAS. For detailed instructions, please see
- They will not be assigned any papers in the initial paper assignment
phase, i.e. that will be done in Aug.-Sep. timeframe.
- Around Oct. 3rd, 2010 when the TPC member reviews are due, Backup TPC
members will be assigned papers that are still missing reviews.
The target is to assign small number of papers to Backup TPC members,
with the stipulation that the reviews be completed by Oct. 17th, 2010;
these members should also participate in their respective on-line
decisions and if need be, write a TPC Lead summary if the
corresponding TPC Lead member is defaulting.
Backup TPC members must closely adhere to these deadlines, given
that there is not much margin for delay.
- The ATPC Chairs will examine TPC summaries and reviews around Oct.
17th. They can seek additional reviews for some of the papers (from
backup TPC members and other external reviewers).
The target is to assign a slightly larger number of papers to Backup members during
this phase, with the stipulation that the reviews be completed by
Oct. 30th, 2010.
- Backup TPC members must closely adhere to these deadlines, given
that there is not much margin for delay. For borderline papers, the
backup TPC members can focus on the main controversial issues raised
in the TPC member reviews, rather then submit a full detailed
- The ATPC members will make their final recommendation to the TPC
Co-Chairs by Oct. 31st, 2010.
