Oral Presentations

Who reviews abstracts?

Scientific Committee reviews all oral presentation abstracts and poster abstracts. Program Chair determines how the Scientific Committee judges oral abstracts for acceptance.

How do you review abstract papers?

All abstracts are submitted over the internet and therefore all abstract papers are posted to our ICP web site in formatted template form (as printed in conference program book).

The ICP administration office will provide an internet URL address that requires a log-in password. Upon posting password all abstract authors are listed and you can review all abstracts.

On this web based page you will have the option to select for: Oral presentation, Poster Presentation, Poster Award Nominations and Reject Paper for Presentation.

After selecting your choice, press "Submit" button at bottom of page. Your choices will default to your selection. You can return to Abstract Selection web page and change your selections as you see appropriate. The ICP administration office will work with your committee during this process.

When do you review oral abstracts?

Beginning on the first day after Oral Presentation Submission deadline date. After all selections are completed, the Program Chair posts selections on to the Program Template worksheet and emails to ICP Administration office.

When must all oral presentations be selected?

Program schedule must be completed within 2 weeks after Deadline Date. The ICP registration brochure goes to print (with all oral presentations posted) soon thereafter.

What happens to oral abstracts that are not accepted?

Those papers not accepted for oral presentation are strongly encouraged to present a poster presentation.


Poster Presentations

When do you review poster abstracts?

Posters abstracts are reviewed the first day after Poster Presentation Deadline date.

Do we reject any poster abstracts?

Who selects posters for Poster Award consideration?
