Rolling CFP Extension

UPDATE: We’ve closed the paper submission window now.

We’ll continue to accept We Robot 2016 paper proposals on a rolling, space-available, basis until we’ve made up the full program — although the official deadline for abstracts remains midnight tonight (Nov. 1) your time. In other words, if you want to maximize your chances of getting your paper accepted, get the abstract in very soon. 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…

This is the same process we used successfully two years ago. The problem with an outright extension is that it pushes back the date to give people a reply as to whether their paper has been accepted, and in past years some people complained about that delay.
