What does it mean when a submission is withdrawn?

Prior to the reviewing stage, a submission can have one of three statuses:

  1. Submitted: the required fields have been completed and the submission is ready for review.
  2. Pending: where the submission has not yet been completed i.e. there are required fields still to complete.
  3. Withdrawn: where the submission is no longer to be considered for the conference.

A submission can be marked as withdrawn for various reasons. 

  • One or more of the authors may have decided that they no longer wish to be included in the conference or considered for review.
  • A member of the organising committee may have withdrawn the submission on behalf of the authors.
  • Authors may mistakenly enter the same submission twice, and so withdraw the duplicate.

You can view the steps to withdraw a submission here. Once withdrawn, a submission can be re-inserted by the authors up until the submission deadline. After this point, only administrators can re-insert the submission.

Note: withdrawing a submission is not the same as deleting a submission. A deleted submission cannot be recovered, while withdrawn submissions remain in the system and cannot be edited without being 're-inserted' or having the withdrawn status reversed.
