Beating the rush: most ICT abstracts submitted near deadline

The figure below is a record of the number of abstracts created leading up the the abstract submission deadline for ICT2014. Note that the date of the creation of a first draft by a user is indicated here and the actual submission could have been finalized by the user later. But the vast majority of abstracts were drafted and submitted in a single website session.

Consider the conference organizers. They have little idea of the actual conference turnout, or even if the website and review process can handle the load, until the crush of submssions begins in earnest perhaps two weeks before the abstract deadline. Quite often, as happened for ICT2014, the organizers will elect to extend the abstract deadline somewhat. This gives them some possibility of managing the number of submissions, but authors should not count on the deadline being extended.

The author too faces a challenge, of course. They typically want their abstract to reflect their most recent results. No system can perfectly balance these factors entirely, but perhaps having some data like this may aid in your planning.
