Provisionally accepted Oral Presentation

Authors with a provisionally accepted oral presentation, are mandatorily required to submit a full paper. Acceptance of an abstract does not constitute automatic inclusion in the publication volume, congress proceedings, nor for an oral presentation as nominated by the author. These decisions will be made after the full paper is received and reviewed. Accepted Full Papers will be included in the Congress proceedings. Only a specific selection of accepted full papers will be selected for journal publication.

Accepted Poster Presentation

Authors with an accepted poster presentation, have the option of submitting a full paper, however it is not mandatory. The minimum requirement for a poster paper is the creation and display of a printed poster at the Congress Venue, explained below.

Posters will be on display throughout the Congress, and will be scheduled into a specific poster presentation session. During these sessions, poster presenters are required to be beside their poster, to discuss with WMC 2023 delegates. All posters must be produced in English and a poster format guidelines document will be provided to those with an accepted poster.
