Reviewing Process

The NZCSRSC is a peer reviewed conference. There is no blind-review this year; in other words, authors should mention their names, affiliation, address, and email address on their papers. By submitting a paper, each student author agrees to be a reviewer. For each paper an author submits, they will receive three papers to review during the review period. Each author will be presented with their papers to review at the beginning of the review period. In order to be able to review the assigned papers, authors will be invited to join the program committee on the Easy Chair submission system.

Easy Chair allows users to toggle between different roles. As an author you will be able to see your own submission. As a program committee member, you'll be able to view, download, and review the 3 papers assigned to you. Each author must review all 3 papers assigned to them using the review templates available on Easy Chair before the end of the review period. Following the completion of the review process, authors will be notified about their submission outcome.

For questions regarding the submission and review process, please contact Fahim.


There has been some discussion in the past that student reviewers are sometimes overly critical, which can have a demoralizing effect on the students whose work is being reviewed. We attach an article that recently appeared in "Communications of the ACM" called "Hypercriticality" that points out that this problem may be endemic in Computer Science discipline. We would like to ask all the reviewers to heed the article and be sensitive when providing their reviews.


All submissions will be checked for plagiarism. Plagiarism will not be tolerated. If you are unsure what constitutes plagiarism, or would like more information on academic referencing, please visit Massey University's plagiarism page.
