Author Attendance at the Conference
It is AM Council policy that the author must present their Full Paper or Extended Abstract in person. If this is not possible, a substitute should be nominated and the conference organiser must be notified as soon as possible. Presentations will not be permitted unless the Full Paper or Extended Abstract has been completed and met the requirements of the paper review process and presenters/authors have registered for the conference.
If a Full Paper or Extended Abstract cannot be presented at the conference it will be withdrawn from the conference program, USB, and Conference Proceedings.
