Presenting Papers

Each paper must be “covered” by one full-member rate registration in the name of one of the authors by
March 14, 2014.

When registering, please enter the paper ID(s) of the paper(s) you will cover with your non-student registration here.

One full registration can cover no more than 4 papers.

Any paper accepted into the technical program, but not presented on-site will be withdrawn from the official proceedings archived on IEEE Xplore.

I am an international (EU/non EU) participant, when do I need to pay VAT?

Conferences that take place in Italy are liable for Italian VAT as they are classed under VAT legislation as ‘services’ and therefore VAT is charged by the services provider (organizers of the conference).

VAT on registration fees will be charged only to an individual person not belonging to any company or (public) institution. Participants affiliated with (EU/nonEU) companies and/or public institutions do not have to pay VAT. Participants from EU institutions and/or companies are requested to provide the VAT code of their own affiliation to actually enjoy of this exemption.

Other Italian institutions and companies subjected to VAT-exemption policies will not be charged VAT provided that they can prove their specific VAT exemption status.
