I was looking at submitting to a conference where the call says:
completed work only
Q1: Now what exactly is considered completed work here?
- That I have already submitted that paper to journals and put a pre-print/working paper version of it online?
- That it is a complete write-up (i.e. not just an extended abstract) but still rough on the edges and missing some precisions?
- Is that completely up to the organizers and I should have emailed them yesterday to enquire?
Background: Said conference is in the field of Economics/Finance if it makes any difference. There is also a poster session and job market candidates are encouraged to submit which makes me hope that also a not-so-complete "completed work" of mine might be suitable to be submitted. Submissions will be subject to a double-blind review process.
Q2: If I do decide to submit such an "almost-completed work" is it fine to try anyways and worst case I do not get accepted or is that considered bad style and will irritate the organizers and reviewers?
