Some conferences and journals have specific deadlines for submission. The exact time is not always indicated; though the date of deadline is often there. Is it usually US time, the timezone of the editor, or the time of the publisher?

  • A difficult question to answer. The last (international) conference I submitted to was in Singapore, and the deadline was Singapore time. US time can be any of at least 4 time zones (lower 48) or more (not counting Alaska or Hawaii). – Jon Custer Oct 31 '19 at 22:25

  • Recently some conferences are listing the deadline in terms of the submitter's local time. And, I suspect, that many conferences accept reasonable exceptions to a deadline. Realistically, the program committee isn't going to start looking at submissions for a few days in any case. – Buffy Nov 1 '19 at 0:38
