Changes, Cancellations, and Withdrawals
SPE and the Workshop Committee consider an accepted abstract as a commitment to present. If extenuating circumstances prevent the presenter from making the presentation, it is that presenter’s obligation to notify the SPE and session chair(s), if applicable. Withdrawals must be made in writing to the SPE office as soon as possible. A Word about Commercialism SPE has a stated policy against use of commercial trade names, company logos, or text that is commercial in tone in the paper title, text, or slides. Use of such terms will result in careful scrutiny by the workshop Committee in evaluating abstracts, and the presence of commercialism in the paper may result in it being withdrawn from the programme.
