Will my paper still be published if I don’t upload a presentation?

I am not allowed to upload a recorded presentation. Can I use the paper presentation slot for live Q&A instead?

What will be the duration of a recorded paper presentation?
10 minutes.

What will be the duration of the paper presentations and presentation only sessions?
90 minutes.

My paper has been recommended for publication in one of the ASME Journals. When will the paper be processed?
The journal editors will start processing papers that have been recommended for publication in one of the ASME Journals once you have confirmed that your intention to have your paper published (to be done online in the webtool at the latest by July 17, 2020) and once you have paid the registration fee (at the latest by July 17, 2020).

I am a student and will graduate after the date of the physical ASME Conference. Do I still qualify for the discounted student registration fee?
Yes, as long as you graduate no later than the last day of the ASME 2020 Virtual Conference, August 6, 2020.

I am living in a time zone that does not allow me to participate in the live Q&A. What can I do?
As an attendee, you will have access to the presentations on-demand before the live event. You can pose your questions in the respective functionality of the conferencing software. If the author has chosen to participate in a live Q&A, the questions might be answered then. In case not all questions can be answered during the live Q&A or if an author will not participate in a live Q&A, staff will assist in having you getting in touch with the author via email.

I prefer presenting my paper at the ASME 2021 instead. What shall I do?
You must withdraw your paper by August 3, 2020. Please note that only papers that have not been published elsewhere might be published at the ASME 2021 Conferences. If your paper is unchanged with respect to the 2020 version, the paper will not undergo a new round of review and the 2020 paper decision will be applied in 2021. ASME will use the final accepted paper from 2020. If your paper has been modified in any way, it will need to undergo a new round of review beginning with an abstract submission. There will be no exceptions.
