Submission and Registration notes

CI-PREMIER Conference Organisation will require all authors to allow the Conference to hold the copyrights of the papers published in the Proceedings, which will carry an ISBN reference. Full length papers will be published on CDRom or USB.

All abstracts received are reviewed for acceptance and the accepted texts are also peer reviewed for the Conference Award Schemes.

Please note that it is part of the requirements of acceptance that the author or one of the co-authors will attend the Conference and present the paper.

Papers accepted for inclusion in the Conference Proceedings will have to be registered, with a text-inclusion fee for each paper. (Each text inclusion fee is SGD400.00). The fee is not an additional fee for the one paper, as it will be part of the registration fee at attendance.
