Information regarding potential travel restrictions due to the pandemic

All MARSS2022 speakers in technical sessions (full papers, short papers, speakers without paper submission in a Special session) from outside Canada, who won´t be able to attend the conference due to pandemic-related international travel restrictions (the only acceptable reason), will be asked to upload a recorded talk (20min) at least one week before the conference start and receive 50% reimbursement of the registration fee. All the recorded talks will be presented during the conference in the time specified in the Technical Program. In this way, all technical sessions at the conference won’t suffer from no-shows and will be held according to MARSS2022 Technical Program. Full papers will be regarded as being formally presented at the conference and included into the IEEE Xplore® digital library. Additionally, such full papers may be recommended for publication in JMBR (Springer-Nature), if selected by MARSS2022 Publication Chairs. However, such full papers cannot participate in the competition for MARSS2022 Best Paper Awards..
