Important Dates for Authors:
Full-paper Submission Deadline:

 Some people request Deadline Extensions when the submission due date (June 10) is approaching. The conference organizer sometimes accepts an extension request from an individual. The extension period should be less than three weeks (July 28). Otherwise, the organizer may fall into trouble in developing the parallel session program in time. The program developing process includes a variety of time consuming tasks such as first reviewing, asking rewriting, reviewing revised papers and notifying gAccepth Decision (by September 1), requesting proceeding papers and registrations (before September 15), finishing the assignment of discussants and session chairs (by October 10), assigning presentation rooms, developing a final conference program and its printing, etc. Note that assigning proper discussants and session chairs is a very complicated task in addition to time-consuming. Passing through the all process takes approximately four months.

Re-submissions due-date and acceptance notifications.

APMAA parallel sessions receive more than 100 paper submissions every year. Members of a review team engage in review on first-come first-served basis. The team chair notifies authors review results soon after the completion of each review. This allows authors enough time for polishing their papers. Authors, who received a gConditionally Acceptedh or gAwaiting Decisionh notification, are requested to re-submit their revised paper before August 25th to get an gAccepth notification by September 1.
