No-Show Policy

IEEE LCN No-Show policy

The IEEE LCN is a live conference that depends on the presentations given during their sessions, and discussion after the talks and in the breaks. Authors who fail to present their paper leave a gap in the program, which is unacceptable for the conference audience.

The IEEE has implemented policies to exclude authors who do not present their paper from further distribution of their publication, such as exclusion from IEEE Xplore. Such papers will be archived at IEEE but will not be indexed or appear in IEEE Xplore.

IEEE LCN balances the interests of a high quality conference with fairness towards the authors and audience members. Therefore, IEEE LCN and its Workshops apply this policy, and reserve the right to preclude authors who do not present their paper at the conference from having their papers published in IEEE Xplore.

Obligations of authors and presenters

For each accepted paper, one author needs to register for attending the conference, and present the paper in the assigned session, either in a talk or as a poster, according to the respective track.

The presenter should start all necessary procedures and approvals (e.g., travel funding, visa application) immediately after receiving notification that the paper is accepted for the conference.

If the authors have, or anticipate, unforeseen circumstances endangering or preventing the presentation, the Program Chair must be contacted immediately. Any alternative arrangements require approval by the chair.
