  • All volunteer program participants are required to register before being placed on the conference program. Paper submission and registration fees are combined into a single participation fee.
  • If your paper is not accepted, the participation fee is fully refundable. If your paper is accepted but you have to cancel your participation, 50% of your participation fee is refundable on or before March 1.
