Conference Deadline Traffic Jam

I noted today that Matthew Hurst has posted the ICWSM 2009 Call for Papers. Unfortunately the submission deadline is on the 21st January. This is a full 6 weeks later than for ICWSM 2008. Moreover, this falls four days before the SIGIR full paper deadline.

As an IR researcher, we have to target certain conferences. While I'd like to have multiple papers ready for several conferences with similar deadlines in advance, various pressures and reasons don't make that possible (e.g. I'd like a holiday at Christmas!).

The conference deadlines in January and February now look like:
  • 11th January: WWW 2009 Posters due
  • 19th January: SIGIR 2009 Abstracts due
  • 21st January: ICWSM 2009 Papers/Posters/Demos dues
  • 25th January: SIGIR 2009 Papers due
  • 9th February: NAACL-HLT 2009 Short Papers due
  • 22nd February: ACL-IJCNLP Papers due
  • 23rd February: SIGIR 2009 Posters due
Happy writing!
