For those unable to attend the Conference live, virtual participation is also available. Virtual Papers give an author the possibility to take advantage of the networking opportunities of an International Conference, without physically attend the Conference. This is achieved by presenting his or her work in the Conference audience by uploading a presentation at the Virtual Room of the Conference Website. The Conference participants can enter the Virtual Room, see a presentation and post questions, remarks and comments at the author of the paper. Each time a participant post a comment or a question, the author of the paper automatically is notified and can answer this question. The participants on the other hand, can select to “follow” a virtual paper which means that each time something is posted relevant to this paper, the participant is notified. In this way, a discussion forum is builded around a Virtual Paper. Moreover, Virtual Papers also give the same publication opportunities as normal papers since they appear in the Conference Proceedings Volume as regular contributions. If a participant is registered for Virtual Presentation, automatically his or her paper is uploaded to the virtual room.
