Instructions for authors

Oral presentations will take the form of live-streamed pre-recorded videos followed by Q&A sessions,  while poster presentations will take the form of live-streamed pre-recorded video introductions followed  by online chat room discussions.

Here is how it will work:

Furthermore, online participation is considered as a requirement for papers to be published in the SMC 2020 Proceedings.
