Abstract Submission

Please submit your abstract/s via JACoW’s Scientific Programme Management System (SPMS). 

All submitting authors should, however, first read the guidelines below before submitting their abstracts and be reminded of the important procedure that immediately follows abstract submission, which is listed below under “After Abstract Submission”.

The deadline for abstract submission (to be considered for oral presentations) is extended 2nd May 2022.

Submitting an Abstract

Abstract Title
Enter the title of the abstract, using initial capital letters only

Presentation Type
The default for all contributions is poster.

To complete submission of an abstract, authors are required to select a classification. Invited Plenary and Summary Speakers have been assigned a separate classification. All other classifications are based on the program tracks for the meeting. Authors are responsible for properly classifying their abstracts to ensure that, if accepted for presentation, their papers are properly placed within the conference program.

Abstract Text
Abstract text should not exceed 1,200 characters. An abstract is a concise summary of a paper. It should describe the paper and include a statement of the issue, research methods, and significant findings. Abstracts should be written as one continuous paragraph. Since electronic submission over the web does not allow a simple, straightforward system to enter symbols, superscripts or subscripts, authors are requested not to use them. Also, equations and footnotes are not acceptable within the body of abstracts and will be removed by the proceedings editor. Use one or more asterisks (*, **, etc.) to indicate footnotes to be entered in the footnotes field (see below).

Footnotes not exceeding 200 characters may be inserted in the footnote field for references to co-authors, institutions, etc.

Funding Agency
References to funding agencies may also be included and should not exceed 200 characters.

Abstract Submission
Once the abstract text is entered, click the ‘Submit’ button. Confirmation of submission will be sent by email.

The next immediate step is to enter information regarding co-authors.

After Abstract Submission

Entering Co-author Information
After having submitted your abstract, a new window will open allowing you to enter co-authors and designate them as primary/submitting, speaker/presenter, etc. Note that when you enter co-authors, this information also goes into the SPMS, which will search to see whether a profile/account already exists for the co-author. After the abstract is submitted, primary/submitting authors may log on to their accounts at any time and edit their abstracts/co-author data, etc.
