The SODA '15 submission rules state that "The submission, excluding title page, bibliography and appendix, must not exceed 10 pages."

However, the website does not define "title page." Does "title page" simply mean "the page with the title and abstract," or does it mean some sort of cover page?

    $\begingroup$ Just title, names and affiliations, and abstract. BTW I think this kind of question is too narrow for this site. $\endgroup$ Jul 6, 2014 at 19:14

    $\begingroup$ @Kaveh I don't think it's similar to troubleshooting TeX installation. The question is in one sense of direct relevant to almost all active CS theory researchers. If it is closed and this makes it less likely for people to find it, that seems like a bad thing to me. By the way, the people on tex.stackexchange.com are almost infinitely helpful . See tex.stackexchange.com/questions/1137/… for example. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I would hope the PC chair would be responsive to queries right before the deadline. I did not downvote and I sympathize with the OP, but my impression is that very narrow questions are not encouraged here. $\endgroup$ Jul 6, 2014 at 20:18

I emailed the PC and received the following answer:

"Title page" means a page that contains only the title and abstract.

    $\begingroup$ Presumably also the author names and affiliations. I agree, this could have been made more clear. I had some co-authors (who have not had a lot of past SODA papers) ask the same thing (it was not obvious to them whether the abstract could be included in the title page). $\endgroup$ Jul 7, 2014 at 21:38
