SAS2013 Artifact Submission Experience Report is presented by experts. The submitted artifacts would be used by the program committee as a secondary evaluation criteria whose sole purpose is to find additional positive arguments for the paper's acceptance. The motivation to submit artifacts as complete VMs was to provide flexibility to the authors in terms of operating system, along with ensuring that reviewers and future users of the archive would be able to examine the artifacts without hardware/OS dependencies. The authors seemed positive about the submission process and made the extra effort of submitting VM images, with instructions on how to use them. The existence of artifacts gave more confidence about the experimental results of a submission, enabled the reviewers to answer some questions about the papers, and in the case of papers leaning towards rejection provided another mechanism to save the paper.
