An e-mail from the APA:

Although the deadline for papers submitted to the Central Division has been changed from September 1 to July 1, the 2005 Program Committee recognizes that it takes time for the knowledge of any such change to reach all our members. Therefore, the (postmark) deadline for this year only has been extended to July 16, 2004.

So you still have time to get that paper in the mail. Colloquium submissions only (3000 words or less). Also, the July deadline is annoying anyway, though I'm not in charge of organizing so I don't know what pressures the committee faces.

Is anybody else annoyed that they announced the extension of the deadline after July 1?

Yeah, there's that, too. Irresponsible speculation: You think submissions were way down?

I tried to post this a moment ago, but I think my service (and also my comment post) was interrupted.

The email that was sent indicating a submission deadline extension may have contained a nasty virus/worm. When I opened the email on a computer at a college in the Southeast U.S., it nearly took down the college's entire network.

The Network Administrator blamed the email for possibly spreading the virus/work, but I'm not sure. This is just a note of caution for those who don't have virus protection software on your computer.
