Additional Information on the Format of the Virtual Conference

This Conference runs as a virtual Conference, and all of those whose papers are accepted will be provided with an access key to the virtual Conference platform so that they can present their papers in real time. Optionally, they can pre-record and submit (narrated slides or video recording). In such cases, presenters will be asked to mark their preference in terms of whether the presentation will be available only during your designated session or during the entire Conference period. The accepted papers will be uploaded to the virtual Conference space, and instructions will be given, when you have registered.
