A Sort-Of Extension of the We Robot 2014 Paper Proposal Deadline

Several people have asked about extensions of the deadline for submitting abstracts, given that we extended our deadline in each of the last two years. The problem with an extension is that it pushes back the date to give people a reply as to whether the paper has been accepted, and last year some people complained about that delay.

So we’ve worked out an experiment for this year: the deadline for abstracts remains midnight tonight. But we’ll continue to accept paper proposals on a rolling, space-available, basis until we’ve made up the full program. In other words, if you want to maximize your chances of getting your paper accepted, get the abstract in today. But we won’t refuse your paper just because it’s late until we’ve filled our dance card. Of course, the later we get it, the more we’ll have filled up the program. The fewer slots available for it, the lower your chances…

Papers are Coming In

It’s funny how many proposals come in at the last minute.
