> The primary contact author will be sent the first round reviews. 
> Revise&Resubmits will require significant attention to prepare the 
> resubmission for the second review. Authors of Revise&Resubmits will be asked 
> to provide a description of how reviewer comments were addressed. Submissions 
> that are rejected in the first round cannot be revised for CSCW 2013, but 
> authors can begin reworking them for submission elsewhere. Authors need to 
> allocate time for revisions after July 27, when the first round reviews are 
> returned. Final acceptance decisions will be based on the second (revised) 
> submission.
>
> The revision cycle enables authors to spend a month to fix the English, 
> integrate missing papers in the literature, redo an analysis, adopt 
> terminology familiar to this field, and perhaps even gather more data, 
> problems that in the past could lead to rejection. It also provides the 
> authors of papers that would have been accepted anyway the opportunity to 
> make their submissions even stronger contributions to the CSCW research 
> literature. The revision is submitted with a letter where the authors explain 
> how the paper was revised, allowing more interaction between authors and 
> reviewers.

> This review process is not an effort to change the ?quality bar? for CSCW,

> This is not an invitation to submit extended abstracts or incomplete papers. 
> As in the past, submit the paper that you would like to have published. 
> Incomplete submissions will not be reviewed. Nearly half of submissions may
