Conference Chairs face a one-two punch of work: managing both abstract submissions and reviews. Mira’s Review Conference Management Software deflects the punch by organizing all the submissions and reviews for the Chair. Chairs can assign abstracts to Reviewers, check up on Reviewers’ progress, even assign submissions to different events at conferences. Mira’s software also simplifies communication among everyone involved in the review process.
The video below gives an overview on Mira’s software for Chairs, and shows how the platform incorporates abstract review submission, review assignments, status checks, email, and event management into one intuitive package.
The Chair’s dashboard is clean and user-friendly. With one click, the Chair can view all the submitted abstracts any number of ways: by author’s or reviewer’s last name, or by abstract information. At a glance, the Chair can take a look at the status of all the submissions to date for each track of the conference.
The dashboard can be configured to suit the specific practices of the conference. Chairs can see which abstracts have been successfully uploaded, which have been reviewed, accepted, rejected, or which, for example, are awaiting author revision. Any of these submission status options – or others the conference Administrator may have selected – can be configured into the Chair’s dashboard.
The Chair has quick access to all the Reviewers’ contact and track information, and can add new Reviewers into the system with a mouse click. Most Chairs who use Mira’s software take advantage of the Batch Assign capability, and give Reviewers multiple abstracts at a time.
But the Chair’s work is ongoing. Once abstracts are assigned, the nudging begins. Mira’s Reviewer tools let the Chair check the status of all the reviews to see which Reviewers have finished evaluating their assigned abstracts, which are pending, and which are incomplete. Mira’s tools for Chairs include an Email Blast form for contacting groups of Reviewers efficiently.
Mira’s tools for Chairs comes with a dashboard that lets Chairs easily help out with event management. Assigning posters, oral presentations, or other submissions to an event at the conference just requires a few clicks in the “Manage Events” tab. Chairs can also assign moderators, dates, times and locations to the events.
