Guidelines for Contribution

Paper selection

The selection is a two-stage process:

  • Abstract: First, a short abstract must be submitted by the author as a one page .pdf file through the paper submission web page.  A selection Committee will examine all the abstracts submitted during this first period to ensure their suitability with respect to the EWTEC criteria. Papers falling outside the scope of EWTEC (as defined by ten thematic tracks), papers consisting of commercial advertisement without any scientific or technical added value , or without novelty (except review papers), will be rejected.
  • Paper: Authors of accepted abstracts will then submit their full paper through the web portal before the deadline. All papers will be peer reviewed by at least two reviewers who are experts in the field and have been nominated by the EWTEC Technical Committee. During the review period, authors may be asked by the reviewer to amend, correct or revise their paper. The final selection will then be made following which authors will be informed of their presentation type (see below).

Presentation: Due to the limited number of slots for oral presentation during the Conference (~230), some papers will have to be presented as a poster in order to balance the session volume, depending on the final number of papers per track or per session. Nevertheless, all the accepted papers will be published in full in the archived proceedings of the 12th EWTEC Conference, regardless of their presentation type.

Author attendance

EWTEC presenter policy: papers accepted for oral or poster presentation will only be included in the published Proceedings under the condition that at least one author attend the conference to present it.

Each registered delegate will be allowed to present only one paper during EWTEC.
