"No Paper, No Podium" and "No Podium, No Paper" Policy

If a written paper is not submitted by the full paper deadline, authors will not be permitted to present the paper at the symposium. Full papers are due by April 17, 2017 . It is the responsibility of those authors whose papers are accepted to ensure that a representative attends the conference to present the paper. If an author does not give their scheduled presentation, the paper will be removed from the conference proceedings and list of published papers. These policies are intended to prevent no-shows and improve the quality of the event for attendees.
