Author Registration Policy

  • 1Author registration deadline is: September 10, 2014 (11:59PM, PDT)
  • Each accepted paper (regular, poster, demo, and workshop) must be accompanied by ONE paid registration, done by September 10, 2014 to secure the paper to appear in the CIKM 2014 Program Proceedings. Registration rates are given below, and the registration rules apply to all participants (authors or otherwise) without discrimination other than the earlier deadline for author registrations.
  • An author of multiple papers can use the same registration to satisfy the above requirement with the following constraint: Each paper (full, poster, demo, and workshop) must have one registered author to present at the corresponding session or workshop (in case of workshop, the presenting author must register for the workshop on the corresponding workshop day); otherwise, we reserve the right to remove the non-presented papers (by a registered author) from ACM digital library.
