Final Paper Submission
Authors of accepted papers for the ICM 2017 conference must submit their final version of papers electronically in PDF format through the IES Submit System no later than 7 December, 2017. Also they must pay the Conference Registration fee.

At least one of the authors listed on the paper must be registered for the conference when the final manuscript is uploaded.
