"No Paper, No Podium" / "No Podium, No Paper"

Accepting the terms and conditions for submitting a paper to the International Conference on Environmental Systems is a required field in Easy Chair. The policy listed here is part of these terms & conditions and states the following:

 

If a written paper is not submitted by the final manuscript deadline, authors will not be permitted to present the paper at the conference. It is the responsibility of those authors whose papers or presentations are accepted to ensure that a representative attends the conference to present the paper.  If a paper is not presented at the conference, it will be withdrawn from the conference proceedings.  These policies are intended to eliminate no-shows and to improve the quality of the conference for attendees.

Publication Policy

Accepting the terms and conditions for submitting a paper to the International Conference on Environmental Systems is a required field in Easy Chair. The policy listed here is part of these terms & conditions and states the following:

 

ICES will not consider for presentation or publication any paper that has been previously published elsewhere.

WARNING: Technology Transfer

Prospective authors are reminded that technology transfer guidelines have considerably extended the time required for review of abstracts and completed papers by U.S. government agencies. Internal (company) plus external (government) reviews can consume 16 weeks or more.  Government review if required is the responsibility of the author.  Authors should determine the extent of approval necessary early in the paper preparation process to preclude paper withdrawals and late submissions.  The conference technical committee will assume that all abstracts papers and presentations are appropriately cleared.

Export Control Compliance

Export Control Rules and Regulations apply to the export and import of defense articles and defense related items, i.e. dual use items.  Information in the public domain is outside the purview of Export Control. (Please note that proprietary company information is not considered to be in the public domain).  All authors submitting material to the International Conference on Environmental Systems (ICES) are expected to comply with all applicable Export Control Regulations, which might include any national,  European or US Law (ITAR or EAR Regulations).  If necessary authors must obtain clearances for their works to be freely published in ICES Proceedings.  Authors who are U.S. nationals (including green card holders); work for a U.S.-based organization, regardless of where they are physically located; or work at a U.S. location of a non-U.S.-based organization must also ensure that US Export Control compliance has been obtained for any and all papers submitted to ICES for publication as part of the conference proceedings.  ICES maintains the assumption that each author involved in government contracts will meet their contract obligations and that these obligations will, by definition, satisfy the requirements for Export Control compliance.
