In the past, we have faced issues where authors have put their USB in their

you at all times and not put it with your unaccompanied luggage and that you also
do not just email the presentation to yourself. You should save your presentation
on a USB stick as well.

and ERR and editorial observations, comments, if any, you received at the
conference) within 2 months after we send you the ERR.
