We appreciate your interest in a conference contribution to ITHEC 2020!
To ensure a reliable handling of your abstract(s) we will again make use of the OpenConf Abstract and Peer-Reviewing System. We have already proved this in several other events.
Furthermore, we will publish detailed guidelines for the layout of the manuscripts in April 2020.
If there is any additional question, please do not hesitate to contact the organiser.
OpenConf offers a performance very close to the procedure we are all familiar with:
Authors, reviewers (committee members) as well as the organisers do have their personalised access to the online database. Although having already uploaded the files, authors can modify and reload them later on, provided the final deadline has not been reached. You can even withdraw the contribution or watch its status during the evaluation process. At any time you are aware of your personal data, the status of your submission(s), the number and quality of abstracts received, and, of course, the evaluation status after the deadline. And all this is performed within a secure https connection.
Please find a detailed set of guidelines and forms for the presentation of oral and poster contributions as well as the layout of manuscripts dedicated for the publication in the Conference Proceedings. .
In order to publish the manuscript in the conference proceedings we need the author's filled Copyright and Consent Form.
In uploading their manuscript to the OpenConf System the authors confirm their acceptance of this agreement.
As in 2016 and in 2018 we offer to forward released pdf versions of the oral presentations about 4-6 weeks after the event.
This helps to avoid lots of photos taken during the presentations ignoring the copyright of the speakers.
Therefore, the speakers are kindly asked to offer a released version for this and to fill in the corresponding agreement.
