Thanks for pointing this out. The no-dead line instructions were if your paper is already accepted by KDD conference. I will update and clarify there. For KDD cup, we would like to limit 10 posters related to this competition, mainly due to space restrictions.

We would like posters available by July 26th as power point.

Hope that helps. Feel free to ask questions.
