If you are inviting the community to review, then I suggest Keep the 
review process Simple.

With my "simple maths" hat on:
Expect 150+ abstracts. Each abstract takes say 2 mins to read, think 
about, and provide a ranking.
Total review time = 300 minutes = 6 hours.

Best not to complicate the review process thus increasing review time.
