Submission Sifting

This demo consists of a single web page divided into three sections, listed as A, B and C below. Use A and B to build profiles of reviewers and papers respectively. Then use C to compare pairs of these profiles and generate personalised web pages listing initial bid assignments for each of the reviewers.

  1. A. Reviewer Profile Builder
  2. B. Paper Profile Builder
  3. C. Profile Matcher

Some of the forms on this page require you to have a SubSift REST API user ID and token (see About Authentication). Please enter those details below and the forms will automatically detect and use them without you needing to retype them for each form.

A. Reviewer Profile Builder

This six-step process allows you to build collections of reviewer profiles based on their DBLP author bibliography pages. Start at Step 1 below and work your way through, clicking Submit at each step to progress to the next. All you will need to get started is a list of your PC member names.

1. Enter Names

Enter a list of reviewer names, one per line. Then click Submit to search for each name on DBLP and compile possible author page URLs for each name.



IMPORTANT: This can take 5-10 seconds per name unless the author's page has already been cached by SubSift. A new page is not displayed until the search has finished. Do not click Submit again or it will take even longer!

2. Find Pages

Enter (or edit) a list of names and matching DBLP author names and DBLP author URLs. When you are ready, click the Submit button to proceed to the next step, disambiguating names for which there were multiple matches.




3. Disambiguate

Disambiguation form will appear here.

4. Fetch Pages

The following is a list of authors and a single uri for each. The single uri retrieves all the author's publication titles from the one or more DBLP author pages (as selected on the previous page) and concatenates them into a single plain-text web page. This aggregated author page in some sense represents the research interests and expertise of the author.





 (Use only letters, numbers and underscores; no spaces allowed.)

5. Build Profiles

Select the name of a list of pages and click Submit to build a profile of those pages. If the name of the list you created in Step 4 is not yet in the selection list, wait a while and then click Refresh. By default, the profile data is private to your own SubSift account but you can choose to publish the data for public access via SubSift's REST API and Linked Data. A URI for the linked data is displayed below after the profile has been created. Clicking Submit again with different options will allow you to change the public/private status of the profile at any time.


6. View Profiles (optional)

Select a profile and click Submit to generate a report. If the profile you created in Step 5 is not yet in the selection list, wait a while and then click Refresh. By default, the report is private to your own SubSift account; you can also choose to publish the report on the web for public access (although it is up to you to publicise the URL, or not, as you see fit). The URL for the report is displayed below after the webpages have been created. Clicking Submit again with different options will allow you to change the public/private status of the report at any time.


B. Paper Profile Builder

This three-step process allows you to build collections of paper profiles based on the titles and abstracts of submitted papers. The format of the required CSV file containing the paper details is described in Step 1 below. You will need to construct this file yourself or export it from your conference management system.

1. Upload Abstracts

Paper details must be uploaded into SubSift as a single CVS file with the format:

    <paper1-identifier>, <paper1-title>, <paper1-abstract>
    <paper2-identifier>, <paper2-title>, <paper2-abstract>
    ...
    <paperN-identifier>, <paperN-title>, <paperN-abstract>    

Each row describes one paper. The identifier can be any string but typically will be a unique number or code generated by your conference management system. The file does not have a header row. It uses a comma as delimiter and expects double-quotes for quoting where the text contains commas or line breaks. Ideally, the encoding should be UTF-8 although this is not mandatory.

Before uploading your CSV file, you need to enter a name to save the abstracts as.


 (Use only letters, numbers and underscores; no spaces allowed.)

2. Build Profiles

Select the name of a list of abstracts and click Submit to build a profile of those abstracts. If the name of the list you created in Step 1 is not yet in the selection list, wait a while and then click Refresh. By default, the profile data is private to your own SubSift account but you can choose to publish the data for public access via SubSift's REST API and Linked Data. A URI for the linked data is displayed below after the profile has been created. Clicking Submit again with different options will allow you to change the public/private status of the profile at any time.


3. View Profiles (optional)

Select a profile and click Submit to generate a report. If the profile you created in Step 2 is not yet in the selection list, wait a while and then click Refresh. By default, the report is private to your own SubSift account; you can also choose to publish the report on the web for public access (although it is up to you to publicise the URL, or not, as you see fit). The URL for the report is displayed below after the webpages have been created. Clicking Submit again with different options will allow you to change the public/private status of the report at any time.


C. Profile Matcher

This two-step process allows you to compare two sets of profiles, usually of the conference PC and of the submitted papers, and produce a report as a website which can be made public and optionally downloaded for use elsewhere.

1. Compare Profiles

Select the name of a list of abstracts and click Submit to build a profile of those abstracts. If the name of the list you created in Step 1 is not yet in the selection list, wait a while and then click Refresh. By default, the profile data is private to your own SubSift account but you can choose to publish the data for public access via SubSift's REST API and Linked Data. A URI for the linked data is displayed below after the profile has been created. Clicking Submit again with different options will allow you to change the public/private status of the profile at any time.





 (Use only letters, numbers and underscores; no spaces allowed.)

2. View Matches

Select the name of the matches and click Submit to generate a report. If the matches you created in Step 1 is not yet in the selection list, wait a while and then click Refresh. By default, the report is private to your own SubSift account; you can also choose to publish the report on the web for public access (although it is up to you to publicise the URL, or not, as you see fit). The URL for the report is displayed below after the webpages have been created. Clicking Submit again with different options will allow you to change the public/private status of the report at any time.
