Travel Support

Q. Where can I find travel support information?
A. Please check Registration -> Registration page.

Q. Is there any hotel or meal support?
A. No. Meals are not included in the registration fee. Participants will need to purchase each meal separately during the registration ($10 for breakfast, $20 for lunch and $30 for dinner) although this meal purchase is not required. However, UKC 2014 provides all meal purchasing participants with a subsidy of 50% of the actual meal cost ($20 for breakfast, $40 for lunch and $60 for dinner). In addition, UKC 2014 Organizing Committee has compensated for it with reduction of the registration fee to as low as $100 for regular presenters and $0 for students/post-doctors.

Q. Is Travel Support Application Form separate from Reimbursement form?
A. Yes, all participants who seek for travel support are required to submit travel support application form by July 31, 2014. Reimbursement form is separate from the application form and needs to be submitted after the conference, by August 31, 2014 with all travel receipts.

Q. Is there any special support for students or post doctors?
A. We are working on now with sponsors in conjunction with the 1:1 onsite job interviews. We will post it soon when the information available.

Q. Does everyone have to do the resubmission?
A. No, you only need to resubmit a revision if the original submission didn't use the UKC 2014 MS Word template. If your paper does not follow the template format, your paper will not be published in our proceedings and you will lose the presenter status. Of course, if your symposium chair has sent you the comments, you can revise the abstract accordingly before final submission.

Q. Am I allowed to update my final version multiple times?
A. Yes. You can update the final version multiple times until the due date.

Q. Am I allowed to submit my final version to a different symposium?
A. No except proper pre-coordination between two Symposium Chairs. However, some of you may be requested to do so by the symposium chair. In such a case, please delete the original submission and resubmit your final version to the new symposium specified by the current symposium chair.

Q. My paper is accepted as an oral paper. Can you change it to a poster? (or vice versa)
A.Please contact the symposium chair where your paper belongs to. He (or she) will check if he can change the presentation type. The symposium chair contact information is under the Call for Paper tab.


Conference Program

Q. What is the difference between Symposium and Forum?
A. 12 Symposiums focus on specific technical fields. The Forum (Closed session or open to the public session) is a custom-designed, special topic session, workshop, and round table - typically with specific sponsors from the Industry and government-funded research Institutes.

Q. Where can I find the Symposium Chairs/Co-Chairs contact information for any further inquiries?

Technical Issues

Q. I am getting multiple emails. Can you send me only one?
