deadbot is a Slack bot for keeping track of deadlines. Its main purpose is announcing that a deadline is near (and who is submitting) so we can avoid bugging people who are submitting.
The simplest use of deadbot is to execute
/deadline add CONF YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM [TZ]
This tells deadbot when a conference’s deadline is. Once the deadline is added, execute
/deadline set CONF
to tell deadbot that you are submitting to the conference.
deadbot can also put a deadline countdown on the sign:
/deadline sign CONF
You can also query deadbot for additional information about upcoming
/deadline help for more.
