Reviewer Signup

Volunteer to review!

The SIGCSE Technical Symposium uses a community reviewing process, and we encourage you to participate. New Reviewers are always wanted, and it is one of the best ways you can contribute to the conference and help ensure a strong and diverse program. We invite you to sign up to be a Reviewer this year! Just fill out the interest form to sign up as a volunteer:

Thank you to all those who have completed the form; formal invitations to review are sent in late July.

Reviewer responsibilities

Reviewers are expected to review three submissions from one of the tracks in one or both rounds. A small number of submissions are assigned to give Reviewers the time to make a thorough review of the submission and participate in discussions about those submissions with the other Reviewers and Associate Program Chairs or Track Chairs. Associate Program Chairs meta-review eight to nine paper submissions.

But what if the paper deadline has passed?

Don’t worry, we still need reviewing volunteers for the second submission deadline, for posters, demos, lightning talks, and BOFs. So don’t hesitate to sign up. We’ll also keep your information for next year, so you can be invited to review again. Thank you for serving in this important community support role!

The Program Co-Chairs will periodically send out EasyChair invitations to volunteers for reviewing roles where additional people are needed.
