Printed Proceedings:

In an effort to keep registration rates at minimum, registrants are given the option to select 0, 1, or 2 volumes of the printed proceedings. The conference tracks are categorized into five Themes and the printed proceedings are divided into two volumes. Each volume represents certain themes, and each theme includes a number of related tracks. Before you start your online registration (The registration site URL is provided toward the end of this page), please review the content of each volume (its themes and tracks below) and decide which volume(s) (if any) you would like to receive at check-in. Registrations rates are adjusted for these options. A limited number of copies is printed based on ordered volumes. Every registered attendee gets the CD, which contains the complete proceedings.
