It is a condition of acceptance of your presentation that:
(1) at least one of the authors must present the paper (oral/poster/short-oral&poster) at the conference, and
(2) the presenting author must make advance author registration with full remittance before May 6, 2017 (Strict due date) otherwise the Organizing Committee will neither be able to include the paper in the final program for presentation, nor the abstract be included in the special issue of eCM.

It has been the Biometal policy since 2009 that every participant (including the Organzing Committee members/Invited Speakers) attending a Biometal symposium must register and pay the author registration fees before May 6, 2017. Your understanding and cooperation in this matter will be greatly appreciated.


1. Early Registration is strongly recommended.

The early bird rate will only apply to those registrations for which the full payment has been received before the end of the early bird period. Registrations not fully paid will be ajusted to reflect the higher fee.
