paper shortage

so one is always running out of space in submitting papers to conferences -here 's a trick I've learned from sociologists:


footnotes are in smaller font, but the submission rules say nothing about this so they are a godsend (or a page end:) so use them - more than 75% of each page could be a footnote - hey, like the Algol 68 programme that appears to have no executable statement, but declares a dynamic array and the size has to be computeed sat run time and causes a function call, a paper could just be authors + title+ address +footnote...[1]
