Abstract submission for SOFE2019 is now closed. Please e-mail if you believe you have extenuating circumstances or require special attention.

Instructions for submitting an abstract.

All abstracts submitted must meet the IEEE standards of originality and quality. A bstracts may be entered directly in the submission page box or pasted in from your own text processor. The web application will format all submissions consistently. Abstracts are limited to 500 words and should explicitly indicate the elements of the research that are new (in contrast to previous abstracts submitted to other conferences)— this will aid in the abstract review process.

Abstracts will be reviewed by the program committee and authors will be notified of acceptance and of the presentation format (oral or poster) by December 7th, 2018. Once abstracts have been officially accepted for presentation at SOFE 2019, registered participants will be allowed to submit their presentations and posters via this website, which will constitute the proceedings of this symposium. Full length papers will be submitted to IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science.

If you require a visa to enter the US you may request early consideration by selecting the appropriate check box on the abstract submission form. The organizing committee will expedite a decision for your submission to allow you to start the visa process sooner. If you choose "Yes" for early consideration, the organizing committee will contact you with additional information.


Abstract Submission

When you click on the link and then the submit new abstract button at the bottom of the page you will be directed to the login page. There are four options to log in:

If you have already a CERN account, you can use it.

If your home organization participates in the eduGAIN network (there are already 400+ universities and institutions who do), you can sign in with your organization or institution account, after you selected your organization in the eduGAIN dialog box.

If you have a public service account such as Facebook, Google, Windows Live or Yahoo, you can use that account to log in.

If none of the above works (and only then), you can create a Lightweight CERN account on the CERN Account Management page. Be sure to remember the username and password, since you will need that account to submit any abstract, slides or proceedings.

If you somehow have trouble to create a CERN lightweight account or using your public service account for Indico access, please restart your browser. If that does not help, try to delete cookies, then empty the browser cache.
