In the selection process, if two papers are deemed almost equal in terms of their quality, priority will be given to young researchers and graduate students.

We will inform you of our decision around Saturday, October 13, 2018.
We will pay the travel and lodging expenses of all paper presenters, designated discussants, and chairpersons. However, we may not be able to pay for the travel expenses of those coming from abroad.
We look forward to receiving many interesting submissions.
