If any of the co-authors are attending the conference, they must also pay the $199 ($250) registration fee.

Organize a Panel

Besides submitting a paper for a regular session, you can organize a panel on a topic of interest to you.  Sessions include a panel chair and three or more presenters.  The organizer of the session would need to contact the other participants of the session and submit the proposals to for approval and scheduling. If you have any questions, please email the conference chair at New for 2014: The chair of the panel is not required to pay the conference registration fees when the panel is the only presentation the chair is doing at the conference. When the panel is the second presentation of the panel chair at the conference, then he/she pays the first paper registration fees but not the second paper presentation fees (normally $100).

Organize a Table Discussion

You may also organize a Table Discussion group by inviting researchers in your area of interest. Authors must exchange their papers and prepare to discuss all papers.  The objective is to provide each author detailed and helpful comments that may make their papers publishable in academic journals of their choice.  Organized Table Discussion proposals should be submitted to for approval and scheduling.  If you have any questions, please email the conference chair at
