I2MTC 2022: Official COVID Policy

Registration

An accepted paper will be published in the conference proceedings on IEEE Xplore only if the following two conditions are met:

  1. The full-fee (IMS Member, IEEE Member, or Non-Member, but not Student Member or IEEE Life Member) registration payment for one the paper’s authors is received and correctly processed by March 4, 2022, and
  2. The author presents the paper in person at the conference venue.

Not meeting either of the above two requirements results in the paper to be flagged as “no show” and removed from publishing in the conference proceedings on IEEE Xplore.

COVID-19 Strategy

We expect the conference to be in person.

Please check the government of Canada’s requirements for entry into Canada here, and be sure to plan and prepare accordingly for your in-person attendance at the conference. In addition, we recommend that attendees purchase travel insurance for their trip.

The COVID-19 pandemic is unpredictable, so it is possible that the situation could change closer to the date of the conference. If government rules change and a registered author is affected by one of the following two legal restrictions, the author should immediately inform the conference organizers of the change:

    • the government of the author’s country of residence strictly forbids travel to Canada; or
    • the Canadian government strictly bans the author from entering Canada due to COVID-19 related reasons.

The organizers will then monitor the situation and, if the restriction is not remedied in time, will allow the author to switch to virtual presentation. Virtual presentation means that:

  1. the author will upload a pre-recorded video that presents the paper (video and upload instructions will be provided), and
  2. the author is available online at the scheduled time of his/her paper to answer questions from the audience through the A/V conferencing tool setup by the organizers (instructions will be provided).

Not meeting either of the above two requirements results in the paper to be flagged as “no show” and removed from publishing in the conference proceedings on IEEE Xplore.
