Please note that both current IEEE membership and student status will be verified.

2.    If you register for the main conference, for example, your paper is ispa08-127, please use the conference name as "ISPA08", then fill in "127" as the paper ID on the registration form. Any incorrect use will lead to the registration failure. You can find your paper ID from the webpage (http://cse.stfx.ca/~ispa08/ISPA08-acceptedpaper-list.html)

3.    If you register for symposia/workshops, you are not sure about the workshop/symposium names and paper IDs, please refer to the following web page (http://cse.stfx.ca/~ispa08/ISPA08-acceptedpaper-list.html) for all symposia/workshop names and corresponding accepted IDs to be used in the registration database. For example, you find your paper ID at APDCT08 symposium accepted list as APDCT08-246, please use the conference name as "APDCT08", then fill in "246" as the paper ID on the registration form. Any incorrect use will lead to the registration failure.

4.    When you register for main conference or symposia/workshops, please avoid using ' in your affiliation, University or title etc, since it has been pre-defined as a system symbol. It will lead the registration failure.
