How do I login as a reviewer?

You should have received an email from the HiNZ CEO with your username and a system-generated password. If you didn’t receive this please check your spam filter. If it isn’t there please email Kim and we will resend it to you.


What is my username?

The username is your email address.

My password isn’t working.

Please email Kim and we will reset your password.

How do I get to the reviewer login page

Each conference has a separate conference login page. Here are the links for the conference reviewer login pages:

How will I know which submissions to review?

Only the submissions that have been allocated to you will be visible. You will not be able to view submissions assigned to another reviewer.

Can I read the submissions offline?

Yes. There are instructions about how to download the submissions on the review page within the system. If you have any difficulties downloading submissions please email Kim.

What are the review criteria?

Every conference topic has different criteria which is listed on the review page. Grading is always from 1 to 5, with 1 being poor. 


How can I tell if the author has submitted an oral presentation or a poster?

The author is asked to select 'oral', 'poster', or 'either' when they submit. You will find this at the top of the submission details page, for each submission, beside the heading 'Preferred Presentation Method'. (The exception is for GT submissions - they have no poster presentations so this heading is absent.)


I started the review but my changes aren't showing when I logged back in later.

Before you close your brower window, please ensure you click on ‘Save’ and that will save your progress and update the status of your review to ‘In Progress’. You can then pick up where you left off next time you log in. 

How do I show the reviews as complete?

At the end of the review page, there is a tick box to check. If you have completed the review, tick the check box to mark as complete and click on ‘Save’. This will update the status of the Review to ‘Completed’. (You can still go back and amend it later if you wish, up until the review deadline of 15 July.)

Where do I logout?

The review system doesn’t have a ‘sign out’ function. To sign out you need to close your browser window.
