Paper Submission FAQ

How do I add coauthors with my submission in Conference Maker?

You can add coauthors after submitting your paper by logging in to Conference Maker. Click on the paper ID, then click on Add Modify Authors. Click on Add New Author. In the search screen, enter the first name/last name of the person. This will return a list of people. Chances are your coauthors may already have a free account with Conference Maker. Click on the userID of the person you wish to add and follow the remaining prompts.

Please note that no submitter is required to enter coauthors if they do not want to do this. Generally, only the presenter and not all coauthors need to register for the conference; however, the registration form does not prohibit the coauthors from registering as participants if they want. By default, the submitter of a paper is assumed to be the presenter, and if a submitter cannot present, they should ask one of their coauthors to register and switch the submitter ID for their submission to be the ID of the coauthor who will present the paper.
