If you can not physically attend the conference then you can still participate in the Internet Division of the conference. All manuscripts accepted for participation in the Internet Division will also be included in the conference proceedings and would be considered for an award and publication in one of the two journals. All conference participants, whether in person or in the Internet Division, are required to register for the conference in order to be included in the conference program.



We are using VYEW ( as a web conference tool for the Internet Division. With Vyew participants can make a live presentation to people online using webcam and microphone. Participants also can provide real time comments and discussions.


To get started:

For presenters/participants:

  • The session chair will send you an invitation to the session. Please make sure to join the session (by clicking on the link) on time.
  • Vyew is user friendly and easy to use. But make sure you spend time to practice with its tools before the session.
  • You will be given a “Collaborator” status so you can make presentations.
  • Due to the limited time and capacity, each presentation is allowed to have UP to 12 PowerPoint slides. Please make sure to skim down your presentation to meet this requirement or the slides will be sent back to you for correction.
  • In order to avoid delay in the session, make sure you email your PowerPoint slides to your session chair two days before (see the list of supported files below). The session chair will upload the file for you ahead of time.
  • Make sure the SYNC mode is on so everyone will see the same screen as you present
