The SRIF strongly discourages changes and, in particular, withdrawals of papers once submitted and included in the program. To avoid the likelihood of this, the author is strongly encouraged to get all necessary company and/or government approvals prior to submitting his/her paper to the conference.
If under any circumstances it becomes necessary for the author to withdraw or change a paper, SRIF policy dictates that the request to do this must come directly from the author and not from any third party. SRIF policy also states that in this case, the author will be held liable for all costs that are incurred. It would then be up to the author to get reimbursed for the expense from any third party if he/she feels it is justified. The SRIF cannot act as a policing entity on behalf of the author in this regard.
As provided by SRIF Policy, all technical, educational and professional publications are required to be copyrighted by the SRIF. Copyright is held by the Institute itself and not by any Society.
In further keeping with SRIF policy, the conference shall ensure that, prior to publication, all authors or their employers shall transfer to the SRIF in writing any copyright they hold for their individual papers. Such transfer shall be necessary for publication, except for material in the public domain or reprinted from a copyrighted publication. In return, the SRIF shall grant authors and their employers permission in writing to make copies and otherwise reuse the material under terms approved by the SRIF Publication Services and Products Board, which shall be specified in the SRIF Operations Manual. This includes electronic posting of accepted article preprints.
No-show papers are defined as papers submitted by authors who subsequently did not present the paper in-person (no videos, no remote cast) at the technical meeting. Presentations by proxies are not allowed, unless explicitly approved before the conference by the technical co-chairs.
Exceptions to this policy will be made by the Technical Program Chair of the conference only if there is evidence that the no-show occurred because of unanticipated events beyond the control of the authors, and every option available to the authors to present the paper was exhausted. The no-show authors may appeal the decision of the Technical Program Chair to the Vice President-Conferences.
Fraudulent data and plagiarized text may corrupt scientific literature and ultimately harm. but by presenting incorrect data or transcripts, the whole scientific society is affected. Writers of scientific literature have been found to be involved in plagiarism and other publication misconducts from time to time irrespective of social, economic and geographic structure. The reason of such behavior is not usually obvious. Easy availability of personal computers has led to widespread dissemination of scientific literature. As a result, young scientists are now publishing their research more frequently and efficiently. At the same time, this has increased the tendency to submit hurriedly prepared, poorly drafted and even illegitimate publications. Use of some amount of copy–paste followed by modifications during preparation of a manuscript seems to be common. Therefore, the researchers, especially postgraduate students, should be educated continuously about ethical writing.
