* a) accepted as it is (unaltered)
* b) accepted after minor revision
* c) accepted after major revision
* d) rejected
We cannot guarantee acceptance for cases b) and c), if the reviewers are not satisfied by your response and your (minor or major) modifications to your conference paper.

* b) accepted after minor revision
* c) accepted after major revision
* d) rejected
We cannot guarantee acceptance for cases b) and c), if the reviewers are not satisfied by your response and your (minor or major) modifications to your extended paper.
