How to validate your final submission

  • Each accepted paper should be covered by the registration of one of the co-authors.
  • To associate a registration to an accepted paper please register using the main email address that is associated with the PaperCept system.
    • We have pre-populated the non-PaperCept registration system with the paper author emails, such that you will be prompted as an author, through the process.
    • You will receive a question during registration that asks if your paper is longer than 6 pages and if so, the system will add in the $150/per page, up to 8 pages.
  • The corresponding registration fee must be paid within the deadline of the final submission of the accepted paper.
    • Please note that due to regulatory issues, our registration system is not interfaced with PaperPlaza, thus we have to manually confirm registrations after you have registered.
      • So long as you are registered by 11:59 p.m. on July 8, your paper will be accepted, regardless of when you upload your final paper. i.e., even if you upload after July 8, due to the issues and delays we have caused, we will honor your paper. 
    • If you encounter any issues, please contact Jennifer Humphrey (she/her/Ms) at humphrey.113@osu.edu We appreciate your patience!
  • Accepted papers which are not associated to a registration of one of the co-authors will neither be included in the symposium program nor in the proceedings.
  • The final paper length is limited to 6 pages. A maximum of up to 2 extra pages (for a maximum length of 8 pages per paper) is allowed. Extra pages require the payment of $150/page.
