are immediately notified when an abstract is accepted for publication;
authors of proceedings manuscripts are reminded of an upcoming deadline).
system navigation with virtually every activity that a user can perform
within ProgramMaster is no more that three clicks away from the Main Menu. Tutorials and help information is quickly available.
