[Participation and presentation fee for speakers]

[Expected content of presentations]

Your paper should include content that has not been made public yet. And the paper should include scientifically valuable and be interested in view of engineering. Your paper may report on recently conducted research or investigations, report on a new initiative or test results that have produced useful results, or introduce new products. Papers with inappropriate content will not be accepted.
Owing to programming constraints, the session in which your paper will be presented may be changed from the one you request. Any symposium to which too few papers have been submitted may be cancelled. In such an event, those papers accepted will be moved to a related general session. Even if the session for your paper is changed in this way, you will not be able to rewrite your paper or expect a change in the participation and presentation fee.

If your paper is not accepted, the participation and presentation fee will be refunded. However, if you cancel your presentation, the fee will not be refunded.
