1.    Abstract Review Process and Notification of Authors

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:

  • in line with the selected subtopic
  • relevance for other groups active in PV
  • clearly understandable and direct to the point

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.
