- All participants must register to attend ISCEE 2020 either as a presenter or an attendee.
- One registration serves ONE (1) participant only.
- The registration fee includes admission for ONE (1) person to the two-day symposium (keynote addresses and technical sessions for all three conferences), symposium certificate and professional services charge.
- Presenter registration fee also includes publication and review fees for ONE (1) paper in the symposium proceedings that will be indexed by SCOPUS, among others.
- An author in the role of first author shall submit a maximum of TWO (2) papers only. The additional paper by the same first author will incur an extra charge to the registration fee.
- Registrations may not be transferred to anyone.
- Only paying participants will be allowed access to the virtual conference and receive symposium certificates. Co-authors, who wish to participate must register as attendees and pay the fee.
- Once the registration fees have been paid there will be no refunds.
Confirmed registrants who do not participate or who cancel will forfeit their registration fees. Refunds will not be given for no-shows. ISCEE 2020 reserves the right to cancel any event if the minimum registration is not met. In the event of an ISCEE 2020 cancellation, all registration fees will be refunded.
Papers that are accepted must be presented at ISCEE 2020, either by the authors themselves, or via proxy. In case a paper is not presented at ISCEE 2020, it shall be deemed a "no-show". No-shows will be removed from post-symposium distribution and will not be available on open-access publications.
Exceptions to this policy will be made in rare and unusual situations by the Organising Committee only if there is evidence that the no-show occurred because of unanticipated events beyond the control of the authors, and that every option available to the authors to present the paper was exhausted.
Authors of no-show papers wishing to appeal the no-show status of their paper must appeal by email to the Organising Committee no later than 14 days after the start of ISCEE 2020 and must provide evidence to convincingly demonstrate that their absence was as a result of forces beyond their will and control, or that an erroneous decision was made.
Decisions on appeals will be made by the Organising Committee based on the supporting evidence provided. Failure to meet the appeals deadline will automatically result in rejection of the appeal. Possible evidence for exceptions include medical documents, death notices, airline ticket receipts, visa-rejection letters, and other official documents supporting the appeal such as visa-application receipts (proof that the application was submitted at least 8 weeks prior to the ISCEE 2020 start date).
