Additional Guidelines for Abstract Submission
Detailed instructions with screenshots are given here on how to create profiles, log onto your account, submit your abstract(s) and input co-authors.
Enter the title of the contribution using initial capital letters, for example, “This is a Paper Title in Initial Capital Letters”.
The contribution shall be submitted as one of the following types: “Oral”, “Speakers’ corner and poster” 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. The proceeding paper shall be submitted to SPMS in any of the three cases.
• Oral: A time slot will be reserved in one of the sessions so the speaker will present the contribution to the audience.
• Speakers’ corner and poster: This category is oriented to those contributions that are suitable to be demonstrated in a live demo.
- A big screen and a table will be provided for the demonstration, which will take place during the poster sessions. The speaker shall bring a laptop, a tablet or similar in order to execute the demo.
- The poster shall be submitted to SPMS as well.
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 programme and the conference organization),
• presenter/speaker (the person who would present the invited oral/contributed oral/poster),
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 programme 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 programme 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.
