It is a celebration-year edition of PIMRC! And it already promises to be a memorable event based on the high number of submissions received so far. Guided by the very same sprit of widening participation circles to this top-tier conference, by setting as one example the most affordable registration fees ever for a flagship event, we have recently made all necessary new logistical arrangements to make it possible for more delegates to join the big party we expect to have!

Indeed, a lot of you have once again requested extra time to finalize their manuscripts. Besides, many of you are still facing manuscript upload issues due to PDF format constraints or embedded font problems.

We kindly bring to your attention the new notes recently made available both on the conference website and EDAS’ paper registration webpage; that is to help you quickly resolve these issues but also to address recent inquiries on what it means if you check your manuscript as a “student paper”.

Hopefully, this second and final extension will once again properly address all reported concerns and most importantly allow new prospective authors finalize and submit their contributions before this hard deadline’s expiration. Thank you!
