Extension Of Abstract Submission Deadline for Suzaku-MAXI Conference 2014 (03 Dec 2013)
Due to an ambiguity in the precise time of the deadline, some
potential participants tried to submit an abstract on Dec 2, local time (e.g.,
in the US), after the abstract submission system was already closed.
The meeting organizers have re-opened the system, with a new deadline of Dec 5
at 24:00 UT (= Dec 5 19:00 EST = Dec 5 16:00 PST).
