Extension to submissions – PCS downtime

As you are aware, PCS – the Precision Conference System that CHI papers are submitted to – has been broken today. There have been several hours where it was been either inaccessible or impossible to submit papers for technical reasons. We are also concerned that the site may be unstable in the next few hours. And also maybe later too. We have therefore decided to extend the deadline to
4pm/1600 Pacific Time (San Francisco, Vancouver),
7pm/1900 Eastern Time (New York, Toronto ),
midnight BST (London),
7am/0700 China Standard Time/Singapore Time (Beijing, Singapore),
8am/0800 Japan Standard Time (Tokyo),
9am/0900 Australian Eastern Time (Sydney).

Please don’t submit at the last possible moment if you can avoid this.

Big shout out to Australia/New Zealand/Other times zones where it is bedtime: #nopaperleftbehind – you can submit tomorrow. Sleep well.
Lots of love TPCs & Paper Chairs

  1. Hello, unsure where else to ask on such short notice.
    When it says “The following fields are required by the submission deadline. Their content may not be edited after that deadline.” about the title, abstract, subcommitee, ect. does this mean the sept.14th deadline? If so, does this mean that a word change in the abstract or title is a reason for preclusion from the submission process?
    Thank you very much,
    Trypho

  2. I had to look up what, “Disgusted of Tunbridge Wells” was all about. I’m happy to say that I now feel I understand things in England a lot more than I did.
