Click here to submit your Draft Paper


Authors whose abstracts are accepted will be required to register for the conference at the time of the final paper submission, attend the conference, and make their presentation(s) in person. Authors whose presentations are selected will be requested to submit a final paper along with the paper deposit fee of $150. Submitting a paper for the conference constitutes agreement that, if their paper is accepted, the author will register for the conference at the appropriate fee, attend the conference, and make their presentation in person.

The deposit fee will be credited towards the conference registration for the author submitting the final paper. Upon acceptance of the paper, the registration discount code and instructions will be forwarded to the author. Authors uploading more than one paper will pay only one deposit fee. If an individual uploads a paper but a substitute author will present the paper, please note the deposit fee will not apply to the substitute's registration fee.

All paper deposit fees are nonrefundable and nontransferable, and payment of the deposit fee does not guarantee the author a copy of the proceedings. Authors must attend the conference to receive the proceedings. Should an individual pay the deposit fee but fail to register for the conference, the individual's paper will be removed from the conference program and proceedings, and the deposit will not be refunded. All expenses associated with the preparation, submission, and presentation of abstracts and papers are the responsibility of the authors.
