SODA deadline

Can someone tell the SODA-powers-that-be that it's really annoying to have a paper deadline on July 5th or 6th? (That's what it's been the last four years...) July 4th is a major US holiday, which if done properly involves a late night with fireworks.

I realize it's pointless to complain, but that's one reason why I started a blog -- so I could complain publicly. And I realize there are all sorts of arguments that it shouldn't matter what day they pick. But, of course, in practice, it does.

Clearly the SODA server felt the same way you did :)

The same thing happened with Allerton this year -- the deadline was quite close to the 4th and also only a day or two after ISIT, which seems bizarre-o.

Aren't you glad you have the weekend to do other things? :)

I think this is the reason why WINE & WAW postponed their deadlines yesterday !!
