Types of Submissions

Competitive Papers
Authors may submit competitive papers or abstracts for review. The submission of a competitive paper means the author certifies that the paper has not been copyrighted, published, or presented (or submitted for presentation) at another professional meeting. Anyone submitting a paper must intend to register for and attend the meeting to present it, if it is accepted. Outstanding papers will be awarded in each track and recognized at the meeting luncheon. At least one author must register for the conference with the submission of the final accepted paper for it to appear in the conference program.

Student Papers
Papers submitted in the student track (and thus the student paper competition) must be solely of student authorship. Such papers must be submitted directly to the Program Chairperson. The registration fee will be waived for students whose papers are accepted. Students will not be reimbursed for travel expenses by ISDSI. Student papers will be subject to the same review process as all papers. All student papers accepted by the referees will be scheduled on the program. Students who do not present their papers will not be eligible for the awards. The judges will take the presentations into account in awarding prizes. Presentations of the awards will be at the Presidential luncheon.

Symposia, Tutorials, and Workshops
If you wish to conduct a symposium, tutorial, or workshop, submit a summary of at least two pages on what you propose to do in your session and why it is of interest and importance to institute members. Follow the guidelines below for submissions. You are allowed considerable latitude and flexibility as to content and conduct of these sessions. You must however, provide your own participants (such as panel members, and any unusual equipment needs. All participants of symposia, tutorials, and workshops must register and attend the meeting.
