    No, the policy requires that each paper must be presented by one of its own authors.
  • I have several accepted papers at the Conference. Can I present them with a single registration ?
    Yes, as long as the three-day rule is respected there is no problem.
  • Before planning my travel, I would like to know when the different papers will be presented ?
    The agenda of the week is available on the Detailed Week Schedule page.
    For the Research Tracks, the distribution of papers in the different sessions is presented in the Research Sessions Details page. Regarding the other tracks, detailed information will be published as soon as possible.
    These schedules could be modified if absolutely necessary, but we will do our best to avoid this.
  • Can I take advantage of the conference to look for a job ?
    Yes, all conference attendees can participate in the Job Fair.
  • How can I get in touch with the conference organizers ?
    According to the purpose of your need, you must choose the email address to use on our Contacts page.
  • Is there a filming and photography policy ?
    For the conference, two colours of lanyards will be provided:
    • colour 1 – it is okay for you to have your picture taken;
    • colour 2 – you do not wish to be photographed.
    If no lanyard is visible, colour 2 will be assumed. Participants (defined as attendee, organizer, volunteer, sponsor, or speaker etc.) should avoid taking any pictures of anyone wearing a colour 2 lanyard.
    Since it is not possible to always correctly identify lanyards (including when sometimes taken off), photos should not be published (on platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, etc.) if there colour 2 lanyards are visible. If despite this, a photograph is erroneously published by a participant, the person photographed can ask the photographer to be made unidentifiable in that published photograph.
    All participants who take photos are asked to abide by this policy.
