PAKDD2008 No-Show Policy

PAKDD defines "no-show" as the author (or one of the authors) not being present at their allocated conference/workshop session for presentation of their paper.

PAKDD categorizes no-shows and takes the identified actions as below:

  1. Withdrawal, before proceedings are finalized.

    If none of the authors register for the conference/workshop before the required deadline, prior to the proceedings being finalized, the paper will be deemed as being withdrawn from the conference, and will not be included in the proceedings or the conference program.

  2. Good faith no-show, after final program is published.

    When none of the authors can attend the conference for their paper presentation, due to unforeseen circumstances, the authors MUST inform the PC chairs immediately the situation arises. The authors are required to arrange for a delegate to present the paper at the conference/workshop, and the authors must identify the surrogate presenter to the PC chairs prior to the conference.

  3. Bad faith no-show during conference.

    If the authors fail to inform the conference organizer of their change in circumstances and are not available for the presentation of their paper, the conference will inform the authors' organization. In addition, if the authors have a record of bad faith no-show with previous PAKDD conferences, the proceedings will not be made available to the authors, and future submissions to PAKDD conferences by the authors will be barred for up to three years.
