Review Stage

What it Does

The Review Stage creates paper groups and review invitations. It should be used to edit the Review form. Use of the Review Stage will overwrite any changes made to the Review Invitations through the Invitation Editor. It also sets the visibility of all existing and future reviews.

When to Use it

The Review Stage should not be run until after the submission deadline, except in the case of public, single blind venues. They can begin the Review Stage before the submission deadline if they first run 'Post Submission Stage' to create paper groups.
