I have sent you Registration form but no payment. I promised that I will pay you on arrival. But I have not attended your conference despite my promise. What penalty I will have to pay ?
By submitting a paper to ICAS, virtually you already have a committment to attend the conference and pay the conference fee. By right, if your paper has been accepted, you must pay regardless of your presence or absence in the conference since we have paid for your food, conference materials and printed documents, apart from editing and uploading your paper to the conference proceedings. All these cost money and you cannot compel us to bear such loss. If you fail to pay, the matter will be raised to your department and university to send us payment. Moreover, your paper will be deleted from the conference proceedings and you will not be allowed to join any of our conferences and none of your paper will be published in our proceedings. We strongly recommend you not to make any commitment of submitting a paper if you cannot come and cannot make payment.
I have submitted a paper and abstract but I am not sure whether I will get funding or I am not sure whether I will be able to attend your conference . Can I ask you to accept it for another conference organized by you ? What is your suggestion ?
If you are not able to join the conference after your paper is accepted, you can let us know immediately or you can ask us to consider it for our next conference. If you are certain that you will not be able to come, please do not waste our and your time by sending paper or abstract. Our experience is that many authors send their papers or abstract to us just to test the acceptability of their papers or abstract. In fact, they do not intend to come to the conference ( as if it is fun !) even if their papers are accepted. We request all such authors to discontinue such time-wasting practice which will be a tremendous help to us and to all conference organisers. We would appreciate your cooperation in this regard.
