IPIC Conference Material Repository

IPIC Material Use Request

In an effort to make conference material (i.e. research papers, presentations, proceedings) more accessible to academic search engine indexing and more easily found via public internet search, we are asking for permission to include your material within SMARTech, Georgia Tech's open scholarship repository. By archiving your scholarship within Georgia Tech's SMARTech repository, you will expand the reach of your work and increase its discoverability over time. The Georgia Tech Library will assign a persistent digital object identifier (DOI) to your work and ensure access and preservation indefinitely. The repository is well-indexed by Google and Google Scholar, further increasing the dissemination of your research. There is no charge for this service and please note that by accepting to be included, you do not give up copyright to the work and you do not give up the right to submit the work to publishers or other repositories. Please see the full language of the SMARTech License and Terms of Use, below.
