Manuscript and Proceedings Information

Authors must present their work at the meeting to have their manuscript included in the proceedings.  Click here to download manuscript instructions.  Manuscript submission is optional for presenters.  Authors submitting manuscripts have the option to have their manuscript reviewed/refereed.  Having a conference proceedings article reviewed is important to some authors, particularly academicians. Each manuscript receives two reviews using a referee pool composed of all authors submitting reviewed manuscripts. Authors selecting reviewed status for their manuscript must review two other manuscripts.  Reviews are due at the conference; final manuscripts are due August 31.

Papers presented as oral presentations or in the poster session will be published in flash-drive and swing-hinge bound hard-copy formats if a manuscript is submitted.  Each person (including students) registering for the full meeting will receive a copy in flash-drive format ~3 months after the meeting.  One day registrants do not receive a copy of the proceedings.  Hard copies are available for purchase.  Proceedings papers will be accessible and downloadable on line on the home page at no charge. Past Proceedings articles are available here at no charge.
