My Questions: How can I express interest to receive invitation to serve as a reviewer in a top ranked conference? Currently I am registered with the conference review system (i.e., EDAS) and I receive review invitations from ordinary conferences, but I consider review in high quality conferences. Is there any feasible way to express interest and show that I have technical expertise to judge papers in a particular area. I know that having certain academic qualification (like master and more commonly PhD) and research experience is must to become nominated in top conferences.
Background: Researchers more or less receive invitations to serve as reviewer of a journal or conference. I guess the process in journals to identify reviewers is one of three main channels
- Author suggests potential reviewer
- Reviewer's profile is in the review system from previous submission
- Reviewers can express interest to become reviewer in journals (Some journals have link to register).
and there should be other ways to feed information into the journal review system (that I might have missed).
However, in conferences, it is slightly different because
- normally there is no registration link to express interest (I have not seen),
- usually there is no option that authors nominate reviewers while submitting a paper to conference (at least I have not experienced the same).
the only way left compared to journal is that reviewer registers with the conference review system for paper submission. So in future, when organizing committee is selecting TPCs and reviewers, they can invite already-registered members to play as reviewers.
