Why I can't edit my submissions?
There could be two reasons why you can't edit your submission:
- Deadline for submission or final drafts has passed
- Deadline for submission still open but reviewing has already started
1) Deadline for submissions or final drafts has passed
If the conference organisers closed the deadlines you won't be able to make edits or create a submission for the conference any longer. If you would still like to make changes on your submission you should contact the conference organisers and ask them to complete these changes for you. You can find the conference organisers email address on the sidebar of your dashboard when logged in as below or on the main conference website page.
2) Deadline for submission is still open but reviewing already started
Some conferences will have a submission stage open but they will start with the reviewing before the submission deadline closes. If the reviewing already started on your submission you won't be able to make any edits. It's simply because a reviewer is already looking into the information that was submitted in the first place and with the changes you make, you might affect reviewers' scoring. Again, you should contact the conference organisers and ask them if they would be willing to complete these changes for you.
