  • Registering as the presenting author -- At least one of the authors must register as the presenting author and the required registration fee must be paid BEFORE submitting the manuscript (final date for this is April 2, 2018).  Visit our registration website for additional information regarding registration. Registration for the conferences will be available beginning on March 1, 2018.  On completion of the registration, the author will receive a confirmation reference number which they will need when submitting their manuscript via Conftool.
    • Note that one author can be the presenting author on a maximum of 3 papers. Presenting authors must clearly mark in their registration for the conference which paper(s) they will be presenting.
    • The conference registration fee will be reimbursed if a manuscript is rejected for publication and the presenting author does not want to attend the conferences.

Paper Submission & Review Process

Once an abstract is accepted, the reference number given to the manuscript will be changed to reflect the conference in which the paper will be presented.

The presenting author should update any changes from the abstract to the final paper; such as the title and/or author information. This can be done directly via ConfTool.

Manuscripts will be reviewed and presenting authors will be notified of acceptance by April 30, 2018.
