Notice and Procedure for Making Claims of Copyright Infringement

We intend that all material posted on this site respect the copyright and other proprietary rights of third parties.  However, we cannot monitor the copyright ownership of all material posted on the site.  If you believe that any material posted on this site infringes your copyright, then you may request the removal of those materials from the site in accordance with the Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. § 512(c)(3), and the procedures described below.

A notice of infringing material that complies with the Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. § 512(c)(3) must be sent to the conference co-chairs via e-mail, fax or postal mail. To comply with the Copyright Act, your notice must be in writing and must include the following:


  • A physical or electronic signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;
  • Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works;
  • Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material;
  • Information reasonably sufficient to permit us to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address at which you may be contacted;
  • A statement that you have a good-faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
  • A statement that the information in the notification is accurate and made under penalty of perjury, and that you are the owner, or authorized to act on behalf of the owner, of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.


When we receive a notice that complies with the Copyright Act, we will remove the identified material immediately.  We will promptly take reasonable steps to inform the user who posted the allegedly infringing material of the notice and subsequent removal.  The alleged infringer may then provide us with a notice that the initial infringement notice was erroneous.  Such notices must be in writing and must include:


  • A physical or electronic signature of the alleged infringer;
  • Identification of the material removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled;
  • A statement under penalty of perjury that the alleged infringer has a good faith belief that the material was removed or access to it disabled as a result of error;
  • The alleged infringer's name, address, and telephone number; and
  • A statement of consent to jurisdiction in federal district court and that the alleged infringer consents to service of process from the complaining party or its agent.


Upon receipt of such a notice, we will notify you of it and restore the material within 10 to 14 business days of receipt, unless you inform us that you have filed an action seeking a court order to restrain the allegedly infringing party from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on this site.
