This abstract should be rejected I strongly recommend that this abstract is selected for poster presentation This abstract is more suitable for poster presentation than oral presentation This abstract is more suitable for oral presentation than poster presentation I strongly recommend that this abstract is selected for oral presentation Please note the recommendations of reviewers are intended as a guide for the session chair.
They do not guarantee the final outcome.
8.3. What happens after the abstracts are scored?
As described under point 3, each topic (with the exception of ‘finance’) will have two topic leaders, one from industry and one from the science & research community. Topic leaders will have access to all the abstracts submitted for their topic, together with their average score and the recommendations of reviewers.
The topic leaders select the abstracts they wish to include in their sessions – this is based on the scores & recommendations of reviewers, but also takes into account the scope and balance of the sessions. Topic
leaders are given the following benchmarks as guidance:
Science & research abstracts:
Oral presentation: abstracts with an average score of more than 18 OR reviewers strongly recommending oral presentation;
Rejection: abstracts with an average score of less than 14 OR one or more reviewers recommending rejection Poster presentation: abstracts not selected for oral presentation but not considered for rejection.
The topic leaders then together prepare session proposals, with the abstracts they wish to include in their sessions for oral presentation. The session proposals will be discussed and finalised at a meeting of topic leaders and EWEA staff in May 2016. Presenting authors will be notified of the outcome of their submission by email (from firstname.lastname@example.org) as of end May 2016.
All accepted authors (oral or poster) will be given the opportunity to produce a full paper, which will be included in the EWEA 2016 online conference proceedings. Only full papers of science & research oral presentations will be peer-reviewed and published as scientific literature, compiled in the EWEA 2016 Scientific Proceedings. As in previous EWEA event, the published volume will have a unique identifier (ISBN or DOI). More details will be communicated in due course.
All oral presenters are required to send a draft of their presentation to their session chair by 03 July 2016.
Sessions chairs will then contact speakers to discuss the draft presentation and agree on modifications as necessary for it to best fit into the session and be of maximum value to conference delegates.
NB: Following these discussions should the session chair feel that the proposed presentation will still not be of sufficient quality and value to the conference programme, the session chair has the right to reject the oral presentation. This, however, is only expected to be necessary as a last resort in exceptional cases.
