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. The abstract can be submitted through this system from 21 November 2023 until 29 April 2024. 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 electronically submit the following two forms to their appropriate governmental authority using the InTouch+ platform for transmission to the IAEA. These forms must be received by the IAEA no later than 29 April 2024:

  • Participation Form (Form A)
  • Form for Submission of a Paper (Form B)

IMPORTANT: The Programme Committee will consider uploaded abstracts only if these two forms have been received by the IAEA through the established official channels.

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.

Authors will be informed by 1 July 2024 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 of accepted abstracts will be asked to provide an extended abstract (3 to 5 pages) by 2 September 2024. 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 extended abstract will be available on IAEA-INDICO.
