Abstract Submission

Abstract submission is closed.

All contributions to ICALEPCS 2021 are managed using the JACoW Scientific Program Management System (SPMS). Use the link and follow the instructions to check whether you already have a JACoW profile and associated account. Create them if necessary.

Once logged into the ICALEPCS 2021 SPMS, please check to confirm that the data in your JACoW profile is up to date, particularly your e-mail address and affiliation. This can be done by navigating to scientific program reports and choosing the “My Profile” link from the tree.

Submit your abstract(s) by clicking on the Submit A New Abstract link and following the instructions below.

Abstract Title

Enter the title of the contribution using initial capital letters, for example, “This is a Paper Title in Initial Capital Letters”.

Presentation Type

The contribution shall be submitted as one of the types: “Contributed Oral” or “Poster”. The Scientific Program Committee will make their selection of the abstracts submitted into these categories depending on the suitability and availability according to the program.

Abstracts Classification

Since all contributions are classified in topics, authors must select a track based on the List of Tracks. Authors are responsible for classifying their abstracts to ensure that their papers are properly placed within the conference program. The Scientific Program Committee reserves the right to change the track of your abstract if considered appropriate.

Abstract Text

The text should not exceed 1200 characters.

Special Characters

Since electronic submission over the web does not allow a simple, straight-forward system to enter Greek symbols, superscripts, or subscripts, authors are requested to avoid using them.

Footnotes/Funding Agency

Footnotes should not exceed 200 characters. Enter references to publications as many times as necessary and with a carriage return between each.

Reference to funding agencies should not exceed 200 characters. This field should not be used to request sponsorship at the conference. No carriage returns are allowed. Once the abstract submission is complete, hit "Submit".

Abstract Editing/Entry of Co-authors

After having "submitted" the abstract, a new window allows authors to print, edit, withdraw, and also to enter co-authors and designate their roles:

  • primary/submitting authors (the persons normally contacted on matters concerning the program and the conference organization)
  • presenter/speaker (the person who would present the invited oral/contributed oral/poster)
  • co-author.

It is also possible to assign multiple affiliations to authors and to remove authors.

Note that when you enter co-authors, the JACoW SPMS system will search to see whether a profile/account already exists for the co-author. If it does not, you will have to create a profile for them. Please be extremely careful with your data entry as this profile will be added to the JACoW repository. Co-authors properly entered in the SPMS will thus appear in the list of co-authors, which will be included in the program booklet and in the author index of the proceedings. Failure to do so means they will be excluded from the author index in the conference program booklet and in the proceedings.

If a paper is selected for oral presentation, the role “presenter” automatically becomes “speaker”. The roles thus assigned are used to generate the sort order for co-authors in the table of contents. The names of primary/submitting authors appear first in the list of co-authors, followed in alphabetical order by co-authors with the same affiliation. Co-authors from other affiliations are grouped by affiliation, in alphabetical order.
