Submission of Abstracts

Abstracts (approximately 150 to 200 words on one printed A4 page, may contain any charts, graphs, figures and references) should give enough information on the content of the proposed paper to enable the Programme Committee to evaluate it. Anyone wishing to present at the conference must submit an abstract in electronic format using the conference’s file submission system (IAEA-INDICO), which is accessible from the conference web page (see Section Q). The abstract can be submitted through this system from 16 January 2023 until 30 April 2023. Specifications for the layout will be available on IAEA-INDICO. The system for electronic submission of abstracts, IAEA-INDICO, is the sole mechanism for submission of contributed abstracts. Authors are encouraged to submit abstracts as early as possible. The IAEA will not accept submissions via email. In addition, authors must register online using the InTouch+ platform (see Section H). The online registration together with the auto-generated Participation Form (Form A) and Form for Submission of a Paper (Form B) must reach the IAEA no later than 30 April 2023. IMPORTANT: The Programme Committee will consider uploaded abstracts only if these two forms have been received by the IAEA through the established official channels (see Section H).


Acceptance of Abstracts

The Secretariat reserves the right to exclude abstracts that do not comply with its technical or scientific quality standards and that do not apply to one of the topics listed in Section C. Authors will be informed by 24 June 2023 as to whether their submission has been accepted, either orally or as a poster, for presentation at the conference. Accepted abstracts will also be reproduced in an unedited electronic compilation of abstracts which will be made available to all registered participants of the conference. Authors will be asked to provide their full papers (4 to 8 pages) by 26 August 2023. Longer manuscripts will only be accepted at the discretion of the Secretariat and only in exceptional cases. Guidelines and a template for the preparation and submission of the full papers will be available on the Conference web page and IAEA-INDICO. The papers will be available to all participants on the IAEA Meetings and Conferences app and on the conference web page.
