Call for Abstracts

Abstract Submission Deadline: March 10, 2024


General Information

  • Abstracts will be reviewed by the ICEC-29/ICMC 2024 Program Committee who reserves the right to change the type of presentation from that preferred by the author to accommodate limitations on meeting space and other constraints.
  • All abstracts submitted are disclosed to members of the ICEC-29/ICMC 2024 Program Committee and Conference Management. Abstracts accepted for presentation are made available publicly with launching the full Conference program prior to the Conference.
  • Submitting author email addresses will be added to the ICEC-29/ICMC 2024 email list (if not already on the list) to ensure that Conference announcements are received.  
  • All authors identified as speaker/presenting author on the submitted abstract must register for the Conference and be present at the Conference to present their work.
  • Abstract Submission Deadline: March 10, 2024. Abstracts that are not submitted by the deadline will only be considered at the discretion of the Program Chairs.
  • Notice of acceptance for inclusion in the ICEC-29/ICMC 2024 Program will be sent electronically to all authors by April 1st 2024.
  • The abstract submission and acceptance notification will be sent to the submitting author as well as all co-authors. All future notifications regarding the presentation will be sent to the presenting author/speaker only.
  • Acceptance of an abstract for presentation does not guarantee publication in the Conference transactions.
  • Presentation is a requirement for a submitted paper to be considered for peer review. This includes presentations in oral or poster format. The presentation should be given at the appointed time in the program, by the designated author or co-author (presenter). Only papers based on material presented in an oral presentation or on a poster will be considered for publication. For posters, the word “presented” means that the presenting author must be present during the entire session and available for discussion. The abstract submitter will become the contact author for the paper submission.
  • The ID assigned to a submitted abstract is the primary means of identifying an abstract until the final program is published. Please use the abstract ID in any correspondence concerning abstracts until a program number has been issued.

Abstract Submission Preparation & Information

  • All abstracts (and papers) must address an aspect of cryogenic engineering and cryogenic materials research.  The subject matter should be technically oriented and feature new, original developments in cryogenic engineering or materials. Abstracts must be written in the English language and must make logical arguments based on scientific or engineering methods. The Program Committee reserves the right to reject abstracts that do not conform to these guidelines.
  • Abstract submission checklist:
    • Ensure the abstract contains sufficient information for the Program Committee to determine its scientific quality.
    • Ensure the abstract addresses an aspect of cryogenic engineering or cryogenic materials research.
    • Ensure your abstract is scientifically meaningful or otherwise descriptive of a substantial development.
  • During submission, authors will be requested to place their abstracts in a technical submission sub-category.
  • Abstract Content – required:
    • Abstract title:
      • Capitalize only the first word in a paper title, except for proper nouns and element symbols.
    • Abstract body & acknowledgment:
      • Plain text
      • Word count limit: 650
    • List of authors:
      • All authors must be added to the abstract submission with a valid email address and an affiliation.
      • If authors are from the same affiliation, please check that affiliations are listed identically. 
      • Contact information is required for the Submitting Author and the Presenting Author/Speaker (which may be, but are not necessarily, the same person).
      • Authors are responsible for the accuracy of all submitted information.
  • Abstract submission author account:
    • To submit an abstract and for all further follow-up actions, such as submission of your oral presentation, you must login to the ICEC-29/ICM 2024 Indico submission site.
    • Create (or log-in to) your Indico access account, via the Home organization (eduGAIN) or via the External email (Guest access) button (see below).
    • If you have login difficulties, please contact the CERN Service Desk by email at and be sure to include the ICEC 29/ICMC 2024 conference ID: 1296489.
