Participation Policies If a paper is submitted and subsequently accepted, the author agrees to present the paper at the time scheduled in the program or find an appropriate substitute to present the paper. All participants are expected to register for the meeting. Asia OD Network policy states that any paper that has been (or will be) presented at any other academic meeting or that has been published before the time of presentation, is to be automatically rejected. Presentation of papers does not preclude subsequent journal publication when acknowledgment is made of the paper's presentation at the Annual Meeting of the Asia OD Network. Based on reviewer recommendations, one paper submitted by a graduate student (single authored paper or jointly with other graduate students) will be selected for the Outstanding Graduate Student Paper Award. A similar process will be used to select the Outstanding Paper submitted by faculty or professional members, based on the paper's conceptual and methodological quality and overall contribution to the field. Finally, an award will be given for the Outstanding Reviewer of the conference. These awards will be presented at the Awards Luncheon.
