This date is not a deadline to participants without papers.

‡ All the participants with an accepted paper/presentation who choose to participate in the physical conference, will be able to update their registration as of June 1, 2015 and should pay the difference with the physical conference rate no later than June 15, 2021 to ensure their participation in the physical programme. The program will be made final at that point only and the commitment to travel will be binding.
