According to GPPS's presenter attendance policy, a paper cannot be published or be indexed and may not be cited as a published paper until at least one author pays the registration fee and attends the conference. The GPPS reserves the right to withdraw from its publications any paper that is not presented by an author of the paper at the appropriate conference. Any paper that is withdrawn may not be cited as a published paper.

Please note: Due to the 'Body Text' being 'Exact' rather than 'Single Line Spacing' some authors may encounter difficulties inserting figures in line with text. To fix this please change the line spacing within the 'Paragraph' options or use the 'Figure Caption' style for the figures.
