Author Registration for Symposium – See Key Dates table below for registration deadline.
In order for a manuscript to be published in the symposium proceedings, it is required that the presenting author register for and attend the symposium to deliver the oral or poster presentation. It is strongly recommended that the paper’s first author be the presenter, although a co-author may serve in this role if the first author is unavailable. Once again, see the Key Dates table below for the registration deadline.
