Sunday 15 April 2018: By this date at least one of the authors of each paper will need to have registered for inclusion in the proceedings.
More details on papers, registrations, authors, and presenters: Each accepted paper must have (at least) one registered author specifically covering it.It means that if one author has two papers accepted, someone else (a co-author) should register for one of these papers (even if this co-author will finally not attend the conference).
As a example, you can have three accepted papers: paper 1 (authors A, B, and C), paper 2 (author A), paper 3 (authors A and D).
There must be three single registrations for these three papers: for instance B for 1, A for 2 and D for 3.
But, it is possible to have only A attending the conference and presenting the three papers.
