We understand that some presenters will not be able to make the trip to Canada to present their research paper or work in progress, due to financial and/or political restrictions on travel. The CICE-2024 has instituted a virtual presentation system to allow the authors of accepted papers the same publication opportunities as regular presenters. A research works submitted without the participant attending the conference in person, but presented via video conferencing are refereed and published (if accepted) in the conference proceedings.
