Submission Types

  • Single paper presentation: Single paper submissions allow the accepted authors to give approximately a 15-minute oral presentation of their research at the conference. The Academic Committee will review and group single paper submissions into symposia, each of which will include three to four presentations. Single paper submissions will also be considered for poster presentation unless authors opt not to.
  • Symposium: A symposium is a 70-min session (subject to change depending on the number of submissions) consisting of three to four individual presentations. One or two discussant(s) can also be included. Symposium Chair is encouraged to invite presenters from different institutions, and preferably from different nations. Should the submitted symposium is not accepted, participating authors can opt to be considered for single paper presentations and/or poster presentations.
  • Poster presentation: Poster presentations provide interactive discussion between presenters and attendees. Thus, authors should be present at the poster session during the designated time. Further details will be announced.
