If you haven’t already, you MUST upload your final paper by October 19, 2018. If your paper is not submitted by October 19, 2018, it WILL NOT be published.

Please make sure that the paper title format follows the style convention for heading and author names:

  1. Do not use all capital letters.
  2. The first letter in all of the words except prepositions and conjunctions should be capitalized. For example, a title “a paper for the global conference” should be written as “A Paper for the Global Conference”.


PowerPoint Submission

We have added a button for PowerPoint uploads. To ensure that your PowerPoint presentation is preloaded to your assigned room, please submit your PowerPoint by November 2, 2018. If you do not upload your PowerPoint by this time, please bring a copy of your PowerPoint on a thumb drive to your scheduled presentation time. 

  • To access the upload button, log in to your profile, select “paper submission” and select the “PowerPoint” button.
  • Make sure your PowerPoint is formatted 4:3 to fit the screen in your presentation room.

Each presentation has been allotted a strict 15 minutes, this includes the transition between authors. Please prepare to present for approximately 10-12 minutes, including Q&A time. We suggest a maximum of 8-10 slides.
