Submissions closed: What next?

The EuroPLoP submission deadline has passed and the system is now closed. It was unofficially open for a day or two past the deadline so one or two stragglers could make their submissions.

For the next week or two the EuroPLoP programme committee will review the submissions and most will be allocated a Shepherd. The shepherd will work with the authors for the next three months to help improve the paper.

We will be putting out a call for shepherds soon, if you want to offer your help please e-mail us.

Half way through the shepherding process the committee will review the papers again to see how they have improved. We'll issue final acceptance/rejection notices at the beginning of May.

Full schedule is on this the EuroPLoP website.

Price of EuroPLoP

We've had a question about the cost of EuroPLoP 2009. The simple answer is: we don't have a budget yet so we don't have a price.

Last year the three and half days of conference, including accommodation, food and as much beer and wine (or soft drinks) you wanted was €950 - provided you booked in time to get the early-bird rate, otherwise it was €100 more.

We will certainly be aiming to have this years conference around the the same price but it will be a few weeks before we will have all the information we need to set the budget.
