Students with Papers Accepted to the Main Conference:
If you have a technical paper, position paper, or extended abstract that has been accepted to the main conference and plan to submit a student abstract on exactly the same topic, you can use your accepted paper as your extended abstract, without creating a 2-page version of the accepted paper. Doing so will allow you to participate in all events in DC. However, if your paper has already been allocated a poster/presentation in the main conference, you will not be assigned an additional poster/presentation. Also, since you won't have a separate 2-page student abstract, your paper won't be included in the student abstract section of the SoCS proceedings.
If your paper is rejected from the conference, you will need to write a 2-page student abstract as described above. However, you are welcome to consider rewriting your rejected paper as a student abstract, which would allow you to present your work at the conference and receive feedback.
