MERCon strongly discourages changes and, in particular, withdrawals of papers once submitted and included in the program. To avoid the likelihood of this, authors are strongly encouraged to get all necessary company and/or government approvals prior to submitting the paper to the conference.
If under any circumstances it becomes necessary for the author(s) to withdraw or change a paper, MERCon policy dictates that the request to do this must come directly from the author(s) and not from any third party. The author(s) will be held liable for all costs that are incurred. It would then be up to the author(s) to get reimbursed for the expense from any third party if he/she belives it is justified.
