December 19, 2018. We are aware that reviewers in an area can access the full papers on SoftConf in addition to the abstracts during the bidding process. This was a conscious change we made in order to help the reviewers arrive at better decisions about whether they would be qualified to (or want to) review a paper. Given that the access to full papers is limited only to the reviewers in each area, we think this is a reasonable and useful change to the previous practice of showing only the abstract. As always with conference reviewing, all content made available to reviewers is confidential and not to be shared or discussed during the review process.

December 4, 2018. Only numerical and typographical changes can be made to abstracts up to the full paper submission deadline (Dec. 10th). Substantial changes to the abstract and the title may be made for the camera-ready versions of accepted papers. Keywords, authors, and contributions cannot be changed post-abstract submission.

November 28, 2018. Remember that this year the main conference and industry track submissions follow a two-step process: abstracts first (on December 3) and then full papers (on December 10). Please read the entire call for papers carefully including the important dates. Submissions are already open for abstracts! Note: If you don’t see a submission link after you log into SoftConf, you may need to update your profile first.

November 15, 2018. Submissions are now open for long and short paper abstracts! The deadlines are December 3rd for the abstracts and December 10th for the full papers.
