following different CS conferences I see the following phrase very often:
Due to many requests, the submission deadline has been extended.
Or something similar to this.
I won't overestimate if I said 80% of the conferences (I have followed) have this attitude. This brings me to the question of whether this is true or people (conference organisers) admit a lie when say this. Why does this attitude exit in CS conferences? Do other fields experience the same thing?
