Reviewing Starts. Papers submitted in November and early January 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.
Final, revised, and camera-ready paper due.
Last day to earn an "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 May 15. For a paper to appear in the schedule, at least one author must register and pay their registration fee by June 1.
Cancellation Policy: All cancellations must be made in writing. Delegates canceling their registration before May 15 will receive a full refund (minus a $25 administration fee). Any delegate canceling from May 15 until June 1 will receive a refund of 75% of their fees (minus a $25 administration fee), and the submission, if any, will not be published.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 before the conference. The conference pays for these, whether or not you attend.]
Obtain your visa and funding. Delegates are responsible for obtaining their own visa, securing their own accommodations, and paying their own expenses.
