Security and Privacy deadlines countdown

Based on ai-deadlines by @abshkdz

Adding/updating a conference

  • Read the data format description below. Note that the timezone format sign is inverted (e.g., UTC+7 is written as
    Etc/GMT-7
    ). It's not a bug. I hate this format too. I'd be happy to move to a different timezone JavaScript library that uses a friendlier format, but I don't have time for that.
  • Update
    _data/conferences.yml
    . You can do that on Github or locally after forking the repo.

Deadline format

The deadline field can contain:

  1. The simplest option: a date and time in ISO format. Example:
    "2017-08-19 23:59"
    .
  2. If a deadline is rolling, you can use a template date, just substitute the year with
    %y
    , or month with
    %m
    . Example:
    "%y-%m-15 23:59"
    means there is a deadline on the 15th day of every month, every year.
    "2017-%m-15"
    means a deadline on 15th day of every month, but only in 2017, i.e.
    "2018-01-15"
    is not a part of this template.
  3. A list of (1) or (2). Example of two rolling deadlines, with one in the end of May every year, and the second in the end of February:
    - "%y-05-31 23:59"
    - "%y-02-28 23:59"
    

On the page, all deadlines are displayed in viewer's local time (that's a feature).

Note: If the deadline hour is

{h}:00
, it will be automatically translated into
{h-1}:59:59
to avoid pain and confusion when it happens to be midnight in local time.

Timezones

The timezone is specified in tz format. Unlike abbreviations (e.g. EST), these are un-ambiguous. Here are tz codes for some common timezones:

| Common name | tz | |-------------------------------|--------------------------------------------------------------------| | UTC |

Etc/UTC
| | America Pacific Time |
America/Los_Angeles
| | Pacific Standard Time (UTC-8) |
Etc/GMT+8
(Yes, the sign is inverted for some weird reason) | | America Eastern Time |
America/New_York
| | Eastern Standard Time (UTC-5) |
Etc/GMT+5
| | American Samoa Time (UTC-11) |
Pacific/Samoa
or
Etc/GMT+11
. This timezone does not use DST. | | Aleutian Islands |
