For every accepted paper or poster, at least one of the authors must register and attend the Microsoft eScience Workshop (IEEE eScience Conference attendance is optional). Papers selected for presentation will be included in a DVD sent to attendees following the workshop. Each presenter must sign a release form so that we may freely distribute the workshop materials.
