The primary author is an author who takes the responsibility for the registration of the symposium and he is independent of the order in the author’s list. The committee recommends that the primary author holds ID for the paper and abstract submission. The number of paper submissions allowed is limited to one per primary author. Each primary author must complete the registration before May 1, 2009. If you do not complete the registration, the Program Committee will remove your paper from the proceedings.
