Some scholars prefer to presenting their research results using PowerPoint (PPT) slides in person, while certain scholars like illustrating their research results by Posters. Therefore, choosing Oral presentation or Poster presentation fully depends on your choice. However, if you cannot attend the conference in person for some reasons, you are encouraged to choose Poster presentation.
Certain authors do not want their full paper to be printed in the proceedings because they plan to submit their full papers to journals after the conference. In contrast, some authors want their full papers to be printed in the proceedings because the following reasons:
(1) They get financial supports from their institutions or governments that ask them to publish the full papers;
(2) They plan to get feed backs from the conference audiences and then revise the paper;
(3) They used to publish the full papers in the proceedings of the conference and cite them later on.
On the basis of the above, submitting an abstract or a full-length paper fully depends on each author's preference.

No matter the paper is single authored or multiple authored, each paper must be paid by at least one author as long as you like to have the paper to be published in the proceedings.

As all academic conferences do, the conference will not publish paper proceedings without having the participants to pay their registration fees before the registration deadline. Organizing such a scale of international conference requires many laborious works. Therefore, if many authors ask paying the registration fee upon arriving at the conference site, the conference cannot be held successfully and take a great risk. Hence, the staff cannot make a decision or authorize for your request. The staff must follow the academic rules. On site registration is definitely welcome, but paper will not be published in the conference proceedings. Your understanding and kind cooperation greatly help the conference offer quality services and rich events to all participants.
As you know, as other conference do, the staff must use paper number to manage hundreds of submissions and requests, trace and manage subsequent a series of processes such as review, registration, payment, session arrangement, and proceedings production. The paper number is unique while the name may not be unique and appear in several papers. Furthermore, some participants may be pure attendees without submitting any papers. Therefore, please help the staff to manage dozens of requests and matters by using paper number per day. Thanks.
