Authors are responsible for obtaining all needed sponsor, employer and/or government approvals of their papers with sufficient time to avoid last minute withdrawals, and should also be aware that the final paper requires the completion of the Conference Copyright.

To ensure conference quality, the "no paper, no podium" rule will be enforced. This policy states that if the paper is not uploaded to the site by the given deadline, the paper will not be allowed to be presented at the Conference, even if it is included in the Conference Preliminary Program.
The lead author is responsible for paper oral presentation. Papers not presented during the Conference will not be included in Ka Conference online proceedings.
The presentation of each accepted paper requires the payment of one registration fee. Please note that each additional paper submitted by the same lead author will
require the payment of a USD 400.00 processing and handling fee.
If an author fails to pay the registration fee the paper will not be allowed to be presented at the Conference and not archived in the Ka online proceedings.
