Abstract and Paper Submission and Publications

Instructions for abstract submission

Thank you for considering submitting a paper to the ECCC2020 conference. It is ECCC policy that a full paper for inclusion in the conference proceedings shall be submitted, reviewed and approved prior to your presentation at the conference. There is no fixed format for the abstract but a word document would be most helpful. Please send your abstract to the following email address: abstract@eccc2020.com

All abstracts will be reviewed by members of the Scientific Committee to ensure both relevance to the conference topics and quality of content. Authors of accepted abstracts will be invited to submit a full paper for peer review. Authors of unaccepted abstracts will be invited to revise the content if they so desire.

All accepted abstracts will be included in an abstracts book provided to delegates on registration with the conference pack. An example of an accepted abstract from the ECCC2014 conference is given below. The lead author of accepted abstracts will be invited to include a photo for inclusion with the abstracts.

Instructions for paper presentation

Authors of accepted abstracts will be invited to submit a paper which will be peer reviewed by at least 2 members of the Scientific Committee.

Where more papers are submitted than can be accommodated for presentation at the conference the authors will be invited for a poster presentation rather than a verbal presentation. The selection of verbal or poster presentation will be on balance of sessions rather than technical merit. There is no superiority of verbal versus poster presentation, and all will be included in the conference proceedings and/or journal.

Please see the paper submission template, which we would encourage all presenters to use. Please send your paper to the following email address: abstract@eccc2020.com

We thank you again for your consideration of presenting at ECCC2020 and look forward to seeing you in Edinburgh 13th to 17th September 2020.

Publication
