300 submissions for the main conference!

Following my post on the incredible number of miniconfs we received this year, I have to say that the paper submissions (both presentations and tutorials) have also impressed the organising committee.

After extending the deadline for another week, we received a total of 300 submissions!

(Can you spot the original deadline and the beginning of the extension on this graph?)

Not only do we have quite a good number of them, but the quality is actually very good. It's making life harder on the reviewers :)

One of them posted this to the papers' committee list:
"Is anyone else finding it difficult to reject papers?"
(The answer of course is YES!)

Something I'd like to see once you've finished reviewing the papers would be to plot separate accepted/rejected curves vs. submission time (also for the miniconfs).

Would be interesting to see whether there's a correlation between quality and rushed submission.
