Please read the following if you are a Advisory TPC member for INFOCOM 2012. Please also read the Guidelines for TPC Members. If you have been assigned a paper to review by a TPC member for the INFOCOM 2012 conference, please read the Guidelines for Delegated Reviewers instead.

A  number of INFOCOM 2012 TPC members will be designated as "Advisory TPC" members. Their assignments/responsibilities will be as follows.

Summary of Action Items for Advisory TPC members

  1. By Sept 15, 2011: Please update your "Topics of Interest" and "Conflict of Interest" on EDAS. For detailed instructions, please see here.
  2. They will not be assigned any papers in the initial paper assignment phase (which will be done in Aug.-Sep. timeframe).
  3. Around Oct. 1st, 2011 when the TPC member reviews are due, Advisory TPC members will be assigned papers that are still missing reviews.
    The target is to assign a small number of papers to Advisory TPC members, with the stipulation that the reviews be completed in 5 days; 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.
    Advisory TPC members must closely adhere to these deadlines, given that there is not much margin for delay.
  4. The ATPC Chairs will examine TPC summaries and reviews around Oct. 16th. They can seek additional reviews for some of the papers (from Advisory TPC members and other external reviewers).
