Non-Presented Paper (No-Show) Policy: Any accepted paper
included in the final program is expected to have at least one author
or qualified proxy attend and present the paper at the conference. If
a paper is not presented at the conference, the paper will not be
published by IEEE on IEEE Xplore® or other public access forums,
but these papers will be distributed to conference attendees as
conference proceedings and the copyright of these papers will belong
to IEEE. For poster sessions, if the speaker is not present in front
of the poster for most of the time during the poster session, this
also implies the paper was not presented. Conference organizers are
required to collect attendance records and a list of any non-presented
papers and submit to IEEE SPS staff.
Exceptions to this policy will be made by the Technical Program
Chair(s) of the conference only if there is evidence that the no-show
occurred because of unanticipated events beyond the control of the
authors, and every option available to the authors to present the
paper was exhausted. The no-show authors may appeal the decision of
the Technical Program Chair to the VP-Conferences.
Qualified Proxy Policy: The presentation of papers by
substitutes is highly discouraged and may only be made after
permission is granted by the Technical Program Chair(s) of the
conference based on solid evidence that none of the authors is
available to present. Papers presented by substitutes without
permission will be considered as no-shows.
Authors with Travel Restrictions Policy: The Signal Processing
Society values diversity. Authors who anticipate inability to travel
to a conference because of a government-imposed travel restriction are
still encouraged to submit papers. Such papers will be reviewed and
accepted on their own merit for publication without any knowledge of
the author's travel restriction. Within one week of paper acceptance
notification, travel-restricted authors must notify the Technical
Program Chair of the conference with proof of their restriction.
Substitute presenters may be possible or, depending on conference
resources, other accommodations may be available, such as a remote
presentation or pre-recorded video.
Authors may post their preprints following the
applicable IEEE policies.
