Abstract and Paper Submission

More information: https://ewtec.org/submission/

The selection is a two-stage process:

  • Stage 1: Abstract review: First, a short abstract (max. 500 words) must be submitted by the author through the paper submission web page. Abstract submission closes on  29 January 2021. A selection Committee will examine all the abstracts submitted during this first period to ensure suitability with respect to the EWTEC criteria. Papers falling outside the scope of EWTEC (as defined by the thematic tracks), papers consisting of commercial advertisement without any scientific or technical added value , or without novelty (except review papers), will be rejected.
  • Stage 2: Paper review: Authors of accepted abstracts will then submit their full paper through the conference portal before the deadline.
    (1) Download one of the templates opposite in your preferred format – it contains detailed guidance.
    (2) Prepare your manuscript and export it to Adobe PDF.
    (3) Log in the portal and follow the steps to submit your manuscript.

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).
