Submission Deadline

The deadline for abstract submission for the ICPESS 2010 is on 15 December 2009. Submission received after this date will not be accepted or reviewed.

Abstract Review Process

All submitted abstracts will go through a peer-review process carried out by a Scientific Reviewing Committee. Each abstract will be reviewed by no more than three reviewers. Referees will make recommendations as to the type of presentation (oral or poster presentations, or rejection). The author can state her/his preference for the type of presentation but the final decision is with the Scientific Committee.

Notification of Acceptance or Rejection to Corresponding Author

Notification of acceptance or rejection of an abstract will be sent to the submitting (corresponding) author by 15 January 2010. Please note that only the corresponding author will receive mail concerning the abstract and is responsible for informing all co-authors of the status of the abstract. Authors whose abstracts have been accepted will receive instructions for the presentation of their abstract. A registration of the presenter (first author) should be made at least by 31 March 2010 to guarantee publication of the abstract in the Proceedings. Late registrations may lead to an exclusion of the abstract.
