The editor invites presenters at the 40th APAN to submit papers for review and publication in volume 40 of the APAN Proceedings. Papers are invited from presenters in any of the scheduled sessions at 40th APAN. There is no requirement for presenters to submit a paper. However, any presenter is welcome to submit a paper. Each submitted paper will be reviewed and scored by three independent reviewers. In some cases papers will be accepted provisionally, with specific changes recommended for revision prior to final acceptance. APAN aims to provide a forum for graduate students, faculty and researchers in the Asia-Pacific region (and beyond) to exchange information on their research activities that are based on or make use of high bandwidth networks.
If you want to present in one of the sessions at APAN 40 - the place to start is to contact the session chair, to discuss the presentation concept. Your presentation needs to be in the official session agenda to be eligible to publish in the proceedings. Only papers that are presented in one of the scheduled sessions will be eligible for publication in the proceedings. At least one of the listed authors has to attend 40th APAN. Presenters in the APRICOT meeting, co-located with APAN 40, are also welcome to submit papers under the same set of rules.
