The abstract should contain new scientific work that has not been presented in another conference or published elsewhere. Each abstract will be reviewed by at least three independent experts from the global PV community.
Abstracts must be written using the template MS Word document. You can download it in the User Area during the submission process.
Abstracts (in the format of 1 page for the Summary of the Abstract + up to 3 explanatory pages) shall be written in English and include short sections addressing:
• Summary of the Abstract
• Applicable topic and sub-topic number
• Aim and approach used
• Scientific innovation and relevance
• Results or preliminary results and conclusions
This information provides the basis for the review and programme selection process, so please make sure to address all these aspects. Please include a brief justification of the choice of subtopic to assist the evaluation process.
Authors also need to provide using the abstract submission platform:
The total length should not be more than four A4 pages. We recommend a minimum of 2 pages in total to ensure a comprehensive evaluation of your work. We encourage authors to provide enough information to be evaluated correctly. Kindly also note that in case you apply for “Journal Publication” in order to be evaluated correctly, only abstracts with a minimum of 3-4 pages are eligible. Please make sure that this requirement is respected.
The international Scientific Committee, made up of around 250 leading experts from the global PV community, will review all abstracts that have been submitted on time and in the correct format, and suggest contributions for oral or for visual/poster presentation.
The main selection criteria are:
advancement in terms of progress and novelty
scientific quality as well as the probability of a good presentation at the conference
If positively evaluated by the Scientific Committee, the abstract will be selected for Plenary, Oral or Visual/poster presentation. Plenary and Oral presentations are reserved for contributions covering a wider scope which are of interest to a broader audience and address the progress and novelties within the topic. Visual/poster presentations are mostly dedicated to issues of interest for specialists in a particular field.
Corresponding authors will be notified of the outcome of their abstract’s evaluation by email end-April 2022.
