[Air-L] Internet Research 13.0: Technologies: submission open

As of this moment, the submission system says:

"Deadline: 2nd Mar 2012, 11:59:59pm New York, US, Time left: 1 day 9 hours"

BUT! The website officially says:

"Submissions Due: 1 March 2012 (Papers, Panels and Pre-Workshops. Details below.)
  NOTE: The submission deadline is a HARD DEADLINE; there will be NO extensions to this date."

Looks like the system is set to US Eastern Time/New York. According to the official deadline that has been posted since the CFP went out, that gives you until midnight tonight (in just under 10 hours). But the system may stay open past that by another day. I wouldn't press your luck on the deadline, though - aim for tonight.

A note to folks who (like me) encountered some issues with the word count in the submission system. Max word count is 800 words. In Word, my submission was 760 words and I was still being told it was too long. A possible solution is to shorten any URLs you may have in the body or reference list. It seems to count each part of a URL as a word.
