Conference Sessions

The General Track

Papers on any subject within the scope of the conference may be submitted to the General Track.

Invited Sessions Chairs Registration

Where an invited session attracts 5 or more paid registrations (excluding that of the IS chair themself), if all 5 authors plus the IS chair attend the conference and present at the session, the IS chair may claim free registration at the next conference during the subsequent year. For example, a chair who gets 5 paid registrations at the IDT23 conference can claim free registration at the IDT24 conference.
