What happens in case the speaker permit is refused ?
In case the speaker permit is refused, the accepted oral/video/workshop presentation must be withdrawn from the program unless one of the below scenarios are executed.
Scenario 1 : To nominate an alternative presenter who may already have obtained the speaker permit approval and registered to attend the conference.
Scenario 2: To submit the documents for an alternate presenter who has registered to attend the conference. (Subject to conditions)
Scenario 3: The accepted abstract could be re-included in the program as a poster presentation provided the presenter confirms participation as a poster presenter. This will not require a speaker permit.
