So there is a massive earthquake in Japan, with who knows what consequences, and the great and glorious SIGGRAPH papers community has taken action.
Why yes they have, they have given the folks in Japan 48 hours.
Due to the severe earthquake in Japan, papers with Japan-based authors may have an additional 48 hours to submit their rebuttals (beyond the regular deadline which is today, March 11, 22:00 GMT). These late rebuttals can be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
