Authors of accepted papers are required to register at regular registration rates in order for the paper to appear in the conference proceedings. At least one of the authors is also required to attend and present the paper. Only in special circumstances, permission may be obtained from the TPC chairs for substituting with a non-author speaker. Such permissions must be requested at least FOUR WEEKS before the first day of the conference. If a paper is not presented at the conference, then it will be deleted from the proceedings and will not be archived in the Springer digital library.
