If you cannot attend the conference in-person but still wish to have your abstract presented and your work considered for publication in the proceedings and special issues, we offer a virtual presentation option for your convenience. Virtual presenters are expected to record a voice-over PowerPoint (more details will be sent after online registration) and submit the file online (link will be sent after payment of the registration fee by 30 September 2021). Virtual presenters are still required to submit an abstract and, if they wish, an extended abstract before the deadline (see Important Dates), and at least one author must pay the registration fee. Your conference documents will be sent to your email after the conference.
