      Presenter attendance at the conference

      The abstract cut-off date is October 31st, 2018. At least one author of an accepted paper or poster must pay the registration fee and attend the conference to present the paper or poster. The corresponding author submitting the abstract must provide complete contact details - mailing address, phone, fax, e-mail, etc. Authors will be notified by November 30th, 2018 of the status of their presentation or poster.

      Authors whose abstracts are accepted will have until January 31st, 2019 to submit their final papers or posters for publication in the online conference proceedings. While multiple submissions by individuals or groups of authors are welcome, the abstract selection process will seek to ensure as broad participation as possible: each author may present only one paper or one poster in the conference. No author should submit more than one abstract as its single author. If multiple submissions are accepted, then a different author will be required to pay the registration fee and present each paper or poster. Otherwise, authors will be contacted and asked to drop one or more paper(s) or poster(s) for presentation.
