participation and to regulate the registration fees before having
their accepted paper published in the proceedings of the conference.

Authors regulating their registration fees on site, will have their
communications published in supplementary proceedings.

English is the official language of the Multiconference.

Any submission or correspondance related to the conference is to be
sent to the organizing committee :
