SPE and the Programme Committee consider an accepted proposal as a commitment to present. If extenuating circumstances prevent the author from making the presentation, it is that author’s obligation to find an alternate presenter and notify their SPE Programme Lead and their session chair(s) (if applicable).
Withdrawals must be made in writing to the SPE office as soon as possible. Under no circumstances can a submitted paper proposal be changed once it has been submitted. The failure of SPE conference authors to have at least one designated individual present the paper at the conference will result in the conference paper being permanently withdrawn from the SPE technical paper archive in OnePetro. Cancellations, particularly after a paper has been accepted and publicised, are viewed by the Programme Committee as highly unprofessional.
A Word About Commercialism: SPE has a stated policy against use of commercial trade names, company logos, or text that is commercial in tone in the paper title, text, or slides. Use of such terms will result in careful scrutiny by the Programme Committee in evaluating paper proposals and the presence of commercialism in the paper will result in it being withdrawn from the programme.
Copyright: All authors of papers presented at the conference will be required to complete and submit a copyright release form to SPE or submit the copyright exemption form where applicable.
To All Authors: An agreement to present a paper at this SPE conference carries an obligation to participate in the event. For detailed information on submitting a paper directly for peer review, visit www.spe.org/go/review.
