Advanced Auto-Assignment in Abstract Management System

Dryfta event platform for academia & nonprofits

Managing the peer review process for an event can be a complex task, often requiring meticulous planning and coordination. To simplify this process, Dryfta is excited to introduce a powerful update to our Abstract Management & Peer Review System: Advanced Auto Assignment. This feature brings intelligent automation into the reviewer-submission matching process, enhancing both efficiency and accuracy.

Advanced Auto Assignment: Key Features

The new Auto Assignment process offers a multi-faceted approach to match submissions with reviewers. It takes into consideration:

  • Reviewer's Language Preference: Ensure that reviewers are comfortable with the language in which the submission is made.

  • Topic of Expertise: Align submissions with reviewers who have subject matter expertise in the relevant field.

  • Preferred Submission Type: Whether it’s a poster or an oral presentation, the system aligns it with reviewers who have indicated a preference for that type.

  • Country Preference: Match reviewers and submissions based on geographic relevance or preference.

  • Affiliation Preference: Facilitate reviews by professionals who have a specific institutional affiliation.

  • Custom Fields: Event administrators can create any other custom field to further refine the matching process.

  • Enhanced Accuracy: By taking multiple parameters into account, the system ensures a more accurate match between submissions and reviewers.
