The 2021 Technical Conference

The last opportunity to submit a paper for consideration to present this year is for Postdeadline Papers. Submissions are accepted through Monday, 04 October.

The conference will be presented in an all-virtual format. Speakers will have the option to present live during their scheduled technical session or submit a pre-recorded video.

If your paper is accepted for presentation, we guarantee that you will be able to present it before its intended audience.

Modes of Presentation

Oral Sessions

The presentation times for oral sessions are as follows: contributed presentations are 15 minutes each, invited talks are 30 minutes, and tutorials are 45 minutes. Each presentation will have a break for questions during the last 2-3 minutes of each presentation.

ePoster Sessions

ePoster sessions are virtual events scheduled to provide an opportunity for selected papers to be presented in greater visual detail and should facilitate vivid discussions with attendees. All ePosters will be displayed in gallery view with search features by keyword, topic category, presentation times, and a flag displaying any ePoster presenters available for real-time communication. Each ePoster will have a dedicated page that will include a 3-minute poster preview and/or poster PDF, as well as an embedded chat window displaying the chat dialog.

Postdeadline Session

Postdeadline papers are presented as oral presentations during a special session toward the end of the conference. The presentation time will be determined during sessioning, but is generally around 15 minutes each, including questions. The purpose of postdeadline papers is to give participants the opportunity to hear new and significant material in rapidly advancing areas. Only those papers judged to be truly excellent and compelling in their timeliness are accepted for postdeadline presentation. If you believe your work meets these requirements, you are encouraged to submit a postdeadline paper.
