Prof. C.S. Agnes Cheng and Prof. Linda Myers will serve as editors for Plenary Session submissions. Final journal acceptance decisions will be made in consultation with Prof. Bharat Sarath (JAAF Editor-in-chief). Papers not accepted for the Plenary Sessions may be resubmitted to JAAF as regular new submissions.

Conference expenses for plenary paper presenters will be covered up to the amount of $1,500 USD for one submitting author per accepted plenary paper.

Papers submitted to the Concurrent Sessions only as well as papers submitted to both Plenary Sessions and Concurrent Sessions that are not accepted into the Plenary Sessions will be reviewed by Prof. M.
