3. Author registration

Each DocEng paper must have at least one regular (non-Student) registration by the Author registration deadline (July 1, 2018) for it to be presented at DocEng 2018 and be published in the DocEng 2018 Proceedings. As long as one of the authors of the paper registers as either an ACM/SIGWEB Member or a Non-Member, then any student author(s) can register at student pricing. However, if a student author is the sole DocEng 2018 attendee for that paper, or if all the paper authors are students, then that student must register as either an ACM/SIGWEB Member or Non-Member. An author of multiple papers who is sole attendee and presenter of these papers requires a regular (non-Student) for the first paper, and student registrations for the remaining papers.

Invitation letter for visa purposes: Invitation letters are issued on request only. Please send to the following: (1) your full name exactly as in your passport; (2) your full physical mailing address; (3) title and full list of authors of your accepted paper; (4) proof of completed registration for the conference; (5) Subject line of your email should be "DocEng 2018: Request for Invitation letter for visa purposes".
