Reviewing Starts. Papers submitted in November and early December undergo the most complete and mentoring review and are the most likely to be selected for fast-tracking (publication in one of ISI's journals for the highest quality submissions.) However, submissions will be accepted after this date.
Authors notified of decision regarding submission.

Last day to earn "early payment" discount by paying the conference registration fee
For a paper to appear in the proceedings (web), at least one author must register and pay their registration fee by April 15. For a paper to appear in the schedule, at least one author must register and pay their registration fee by May 1.
Cancellation Policy: All cancellations must be made in writing. Delegates canceling their registration before April 15 will receive a full refund (minus a $25 administration fee). Any delegate canceling from April 15 until May 1 will receive a refund of 75% of their fees (minus a $25 administration fee) and the submission, if any, will not be published.
While cancellations after May 1 cannot be refunded, the delegate may substitute another to take his or her place. [The reason for these requirements is that we need to order and pay for food, printed material, formatting of papers, and other items well in advance of the conference. The conference pays for these, whether or not you attend.] Should a delegate be unable to attend, we will send the conference materials via airmail for an additional $50 shipping and handling fee.
Obtain your visa and funding. Delegates are responsible for obtaining their own visa, securing their own accommodations, and paying their own expenses. You need to apply for your visa early. Allow at least two months.
For paper to appear in printed conference book, at least one author must have paid registration by April 15.
