NOTE: For conference papers, one author per paper must pay the full non-student registration fee (either IEEE member fee or non-IEEE member fee), in order to partially cover the publication costs of the paper. Thus, if a student is the sole attending author for a paper, he or she cannot register at the reduced student rate.

NOTE: Authors of multiple papers with only one attendee
If several papers are going to be presented by a single attendee, and no other authors will be attending the conference, the second and subsequent papers require a publishing fee of $140 per page ($1,120 for an 8-page paper), slightly lower than full registration. If the second or other papers are over the page limit, those extra pages still require the appropriate extra page charge ($160 per page over the limit). Please note with your registration which second and third etc. papers are also covered by this registration, as well as the number of pages of each paper. Please also send an E-mail to the Registration Chair and Publications Chair describing which papers are covered under the single registration.

Example: Paper X is 8 pages, paper Y is 9 pages, and only one author will be attending. The author needs to pay one full registration ($1,095 IEEE member, $1,295 non-IEEE) for paper X, plus a publishing cost of 8 * $140 + 1* $140(one extra page) for paper Y, for a total of $2,355 IEEE member, $2,555 non-IEEE.
