The deadline for ACM STOC 2013 submissions has been extended to Monday, Nov 5 2012 5:00 p.m. EST. The change has been announced on the STOC website.
1) Please read the Call for Papers carefully and pay special attention
to length and formatting requirements, which have changed since last
a) Submissions must be no more than 10 pages in two-column ACM
Proceedings format, including the bibliography.
b) Length and formatting requirements will be enforced strictly
and literally; submissions that don't conform will be summarily
Note that you have the option of uploading a full-paper version, along
with your 10-page extended abstract.
2) The online submission process will take more time than it has in
the past for at least two reasons:
a) There are roughly three times as many Program-Committee members
as in the past, and thus Conflicts of Interest will take longer to
b) Each author is required to select one or more Topics (from a
moderately long list) that describe his or her submission.
Thus we strongly suggest that you create your user account on the
submission server NOW and fill in a "start new paper" form for each
submission, even if you have not yet finished writing it. Submissions
can be modified any time between now and the deadline of Nov. 2, 2012
at 04:59 pm EDT.
