In the case of multi-authored papers, at least one author must register at the full registration rate for the paper to be considered for presentation at the Conference.  If an author has more than one accepted paper, he/she must pay the full registration fee plus extra page charges, if any apply.  Each additional accepted paper costs US$350 fee (up to 2 additional papers at this rate) plus extra page charges, if any.
