Communications from SME

Please set your spam filter to accept messages from “smenet.org” and “SME”. SMEweb is the address of the server that sends messages from the program committee to you via our online submission and review database, so do not reply to it. Please contact SME Authors Support at authors@smenet.org if you do not receive a submission confirmation email or notifications from the Program Committee by the deadline dates below.

About Acceptance Notification

You will receive an email from SME regarding your abstract’s acceptance status in September 2021. If you have not received an email notifying you on the status of your submission by October 1, 2021, please notify Tara Davis at davis@smenet.org or Raven Refuerzo at refuerzo@smenet.org with your name and title of your submission.


Presenting Author Registration, Funding, and Visa Application

Registration is open. Presenting authors are required to register and pay fees.

You are responsible for arranging your own funding. SME does not have funds available to pay registration or travel expenses.

You are encouraged to begin planning for funding and visa arrangements now, as the processes can sometimes take several months. Visa and Letter of Invitation information can be found on the conference website in the Attendee FAQs.


The Preliminary Program

The preliminary program and registration materials are posted online. Registration opens in October.


A Note About Deadlines

Deadlines will be strictly enforced in order to ensure efficient, fair, and professional management of the review process. NO exceptions will be made. Please mark your calendar with important conference dates and plan so that your activities take place well before deadlines to avoid unforeseen or unavoidable delays in your schedule, to avoid technical overloads or human error caused by last minute "traffic jams," and to give SME and Program Committee members time to help you if needed.
