Many conferences divide their review assignments into multiple rounds. Each round is given a name, such as “R1” or “lastround” (we suggest very short names like “R1”). Configure rounds on the settings page. To search for any paper with a round “R2” review assignment, search for re:R2”. To list a PC member’s round “R1” review assignments, search for “re:membername:R1”.

Different rounds usually share the same review form, but you can also mark review fields as appearing only in certain rounds. First configure rounds, then see Settings > Review form.

Assigning rounds

New assignments are marked by default with the round defined in review settings. The automatic and bulk assignment pages also let you set a review round.
