The Review Process

All submissions in NZCSRSC'09 are peer reviewed. This provides students with the opportunity of gaining academic reviewing experience. By submitting a paper, each student author agrees to be a reviewer. When submitting a paper, all student authors should be listed as corresponding authors on the EasyChair submit utility (See above). All corresponding authors will be reviewers.

At the start of the review period, each corresponding author will receive up to three papers to review for each paper they have submitted to the conference e.g. if you have submitted two papers to the conference, you will recieve up to six papers to review. All papers will receive at least three reviews.

A guideline and review template will be provided to each reviewer at the start of the review period.

More details will be put up here closer to the review date.

If you have any queries regarding submission or the review process, contact John Downs.


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 the University of Auckland's Referencite.
