Submission Policies

By submitting an abstract, you have agreed to the terms and conditions set out below: 

  • Multiple abstract submission: Invited speakers and delegates can present only one abstract for each presenting author.

  • Withdrawing an Abstract: If an invited speaker accepts an invitation to present but is later unable to do so, the speaker must contact the GWAbstracts@graphene-flagship.eu. 

  • Deadline: The final deadline to submit the abstract is 12 June, 23:59 Central European Time. Only abstracts received by the published deadline are guaranteed acceptance into the regular scientific program. The organisers are under no obligation to schedule any contributed abstract that arrives after the close of business on the deadline date
  • Presentation Time: At the GW meetings, an invited paper is usually given 12 minutes for presentation plus 3 more minutes for questions. Unit meeting presentation times vary.
  •  Abstract Review: All submitted abstracts will go through a peer-review process carriedout by an international reviewing committee. Each abstract will be reviewed by at least three reviewers. The GW reserves the right to reject or alter abstracts based on, but not limited to, the following criteria: 
  1. Abstract lacks in scientific quality

  2. Abstract is poorly written in English (the official language of the meeting). 

  1. Abstracts fall outside of the topical scope of the meeting 

  1. Abstracts contain inappropriate content 

  1. Abstracts do not comply with style guidelines, including excessive length

  •  Abstract Selection: The GW Scientific Programme Committee makes the final selection of abstracts to be included in the conference programme. Abstracts can be selected for oral presentation in oral abstract sessions or to be presented as a poster. A small number of highest scoring posters are selected for presentation in oral poster discussion sessions, whereas majority of the posters will be displayed in the Poster Exhibition.
  •  Notification of Acceptance or Rejection to Corresponding Author: Notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent to the submitting (corresponding) author in July 2020. Please note that only the corresponding author will receive mail concerning the abstract and is responsible for informing all co-authors of the status of the abstract. Authors whose abstracts have been accepted will receive instructions for the presentation of them. 
  •  Publication of Accepted Abstracts: The submission of the abstracts constitutes the authors’ consent to publication. If the abstract is accepted, the authors agree that their abstracts are published under the Graphene Week Digital Programme published on the website.

  •  Poster Sessions: Authors of abstracts assigned to poster sessions should make sure that the title and content of their posters correspond to the title and content of the abstract printed in the online program. 

  1. The poster board can take an A0 poster in ‘Portrait’ layout (A0 prints measure 841mm x 1189mm), unless otherwise indicated by the program organizers.
