The Submission System is open


Special Online Presentations

This year, we are again hoping to offer an online presentation facility following the successful trial of this at the IE10 conference. Online sessions will take place via Skype connections and are for authors who would like to present a paper to IE2013, but have significant reasons why they are unable to attend in person. The performance of the system cannot be guaranteed and, as such authors will be required to submit a video version of their presentation (and a Powerpoint/PDF), which would be used if the connections fail. Authors wishing to have their papers considered for online delivery should tick the relevant option when using the IE13 online submission system, and submit a note making a case for such a presentation to be considered. Papers for this session will go through the same rigorous referring process and will be published in the main conference proceedings.  However, only a limited number of such papers will be allowed to be presented in this mode, and acceptance will be made on the strength of the supporting case in association with the reviewer's assessment. Thus, you are encouraged to present in person, at the conference, wherever possible.

When you submit your paper to be considered for the online presentation you will need to attach to it (in the same submission login) a cover letter clearly stating (a) your submission is for online presentation, and (b) the reasons why you need/prefer to be online. If the paper is accepted then in the final submission you will also have to upload a video and Powerpoint/PDF of the presentation for the reasons explained above.
