Yes - If you've submitted your paper, but wish to edit or delete it, you have the option to do so.

Please note that the most recently uploaded version of your reply must be delivered within the submission deadline.

As you upload a newer version, the previously uploaded paper will be overwritten. If the most recently uploaded version is submitted after the deadline, it will not be accepted, not even if you have uploaded an earlier version of the paper within the deadline.
