Successfully submitted abstracts will be acknowledged with an electronic receipt including an abstract reference number, which should be quoted in all correspondence. Allow at least 2 hours for your receipt to be returned to you.
Once the paper is accepted, at least one of the authors must register for the conference and present the paper at the conference.
All authors who register for the conference are encouraged to submit their extended papers to be considered for publication in a Special Issue organized in International Journal of Fatigue. Papers submitted to the Special Issue will go through the same stringent peer-review process and the acceptance of the papers is not guaranteed. Find out more about the previous Special issues.
Abstracts of all accepted contributions will be included within the online abstract system which will be distributed to all registered conference participants.
We are pleased to announce that we will be presenting awards for the best poster at the conference. Posters will be judged by category and by best overall paper. The winners will be given a free one year online subscription to International Journal of Fatigue.
For revisions or queries regarding papers already submitted
If you do not receive acknowledgement for your abstract submission or you wish to make any essential revisions to an abstract already submitted, please DO NOT RESUBMIT your abstract, as this may lead to duplication. Please contact us with details of any revisions or queries. Please quote your reference number if you have one.
