“I paid my registration fee but the paper management system shows me as “upload fee not paid”, what is the upload fee? Is this different? how is this fixed?”
The registration system and the paper management system are linked to ensure that only authors who have a paid the registration fee, have paid any applicable overlength page charges, and have paid any over submission fees are allowed to upload his or her final paper.
If you have registered for the conference, but are not able to upload for your final paper it is best to take the following steps:
- Start your registration in the Paper Management System. This links your paper account to the registration system.2.
- Make sure you have registered as an author. Authors must register as an “Author” and pay an “Author” registration type. Registration as a general attendee will not support paper upload
- Make sure you are the corresponding author. Only the corresponding author can upload the final paper.
- Make sure you have answered all the questions related to your paper when registering. If you do not answer the questions related to your paper during the registration process, the registration system will not send your paper information to the paper management system and the paper management system will not know that you have paid. You must answer all paper submission questions when registering
- Make sure you have provided the right paper information when registering you will be asked how many submissions you have, how many of your papers are overlength, and the paper numbers. If any of this information the paper management system will not validate your payment with the registration system
“I am the first listed author on the paper, but I can’t come to the conference. Can one of my co-authors be the corresponding author?”
The corresponding is not synonymous with the first author listed on the paper. The corresponding author carries the responsibility of being the lead paper manager; uploading the final paper, attending the conference, and presenting the paper. Any author listed on the paper who accepts this responsibility can be the corresponding author
“I am the corresponding author but my co-author will attend the conference and present the paper as I cannot attend, do I have to take any steps?”
If the corresponding author cannot a attend and a co-author will present the paper in lieu of the corresponding author, the corresponding author will still be considered a no show. With this, the corresponding author must follow the no show process and submit the No show/Absentee/Substitution form. To avoid this extra step, it is better to make sure the corresponding author is the author who will be attending the conference.
