Following a chair suggestion conveyed by Chris Dyer, EDAS now has an additional way to refer to papers that's hopefully a bit less cumbersome than the current ten-digit numbers starting with 1569. Papers within each conference group are now numbered sequentially, i.e., typically with a small integer. You can include the short paper number in templates, search for it and include it in the paper list. This number will become more prominent over time. Please let EDAS Help know if there's a place this number should be available and is not.
