In the Paper Submission stage, Confy does not require any actions from General Chairs.
However, General Chairs need to make sure that the Submission Deadline is set up appropriately. While it is generally not recommended to extend the Submission Deadline, Organizing Committees are allowed to do so maximum two times, for the total duration of no more than 30 days.
Submission closes by moving the conference stage in Confy from Paper Submission to Submission Verification. This is typically done by the Program Committee Chair.
You may extend the Submission Deadline by clicking on Deadlines in the top row of the conference dashboard in Confy, changing the date next to Submission Deadline to your new desired date, and clicking Save.
Please note that it is generally not recommended to extend the Submission Deadline.
Organizing Committees are allowed to extend the Submission Deadline maximum two times, for the total duration of no more than 30 days.
Since authors are allowed to edit their submissions until the submission deadline, it is not possible to begin processing submissions until after the submission deadline. You will be able to do so immediately after – in the Submission Verification stage.
If the conference has multiple Technical Tracks, please note that they all comply to the same submission deadline, and these Tracks therefore cannot be processed separately.
In order to provide fair conditions to all submitting authors, creation of Late Tracks to supplement main paper submission after the submission deadline is not permitted.
