Authors are invited to submit abstracts of papers for presentation in the Technical Programme. These should be of original and unpublished work. Commercialism in manuscripts, presentations, or visuals will not be permitted. Papers will be allocated to oral and poster sessions by the Technical Programme Committee (TPC), based on authors' wishes, overall evaluation, and limits of the time schedule. It is planned that oral sessions will each contain four presentations, with 20 minutes scheduled for each paper, including discussion time. Poster presentations will be located in allocated topic zones and will be on display for the duration of the event. The manuscript for all accepted papers should be no more than 6 pages and must be submitted through the online procedure by Wednesday 8 May 2019.

When assessing submitted papers, the TPC will consider:

  • The originality and novelty of the subject
  • Critical study of a process, or a product in the course of development
  • Study of the effects of fundamental scientific results on R&D
