I received an "offer" to become the publication chair of a high profile IEEE conference. Before accepting the "offer" I would like to know what are my responsibilities, and I would like to plan ahead as what portion of the available time such a commitment would eat up.
I saw this description, but it is rather vague. It says:
Publications Chair: Responsible for the coordination of production of conference content (e.g., papers from special tutorial sessions or colloquia, summaries of conference papers, programs, etc.) and serves as the point of contact for all Xplore submission-related inquiries before and after the conference.
It tells nothing about the pitfalls, so I want some feedback from people who have really done this.
EDIT: additional questions
Does it have positive or negative impact on the student. In terms of workload vs. benefit?
