It is the author’s responsibility to ensure that the submitted work does not infringe any existing copyright. Authors should obtain permission to reproduce or adapt copyrighted material and provide evidence of approval upon submitting the final version of a manuscript.


Abstracts are subject to a double-blind review process and are reviewed by at least one independent reviewer. Decisions regarding the publication of an abstract are based on the recommendations of these reviewers. Reviewers evaluate abstracts based on their appropriateness for the conference, significance of contribution to the discipline, conceptual adequacy, technical adequacy, and clarity of presentation. Abstracts of members of the conference secretariat are subjected to the same review procedures.
