Can I present papers at consecutive ICOHTEC or SHOT Annual Meetings?

We allow the same speaker to present papers at consecutive meetings, but turn down papers that are substantially the same as previously accepted ones. Any submission on the same topic should explain how the new paper differs from a prior presentation.

Can the program committee propose changes in pre-organized sessions?

Most pre-organized sessions, if accepted, will remain as proposed. In select cases, depending on the quality of individual abstracts and their coherence within the session, one or more of the proposed papers may be rejected or moved to another session. Occasionally, the program committee may ask the session organizer to consider an individual abstract submitted directly to the program committee that speaks directly to the theme of a proposed session. If you believe that your session can only work as a single unit, please specify “all or none,” with or without explanation, and the program committee will evaluate the session proposal as a unit.

Can I submit a paper or session proposal

The deadline for submitting proposals for the 2024 ICOHTEC- SHOT Annual Meeting has passed. It is not possible to submit proposals any more.

Are paper presenters allowed have additional roles at the Annual Meeting?

Individuals may present one titled paper, and participate in two additional published roles that are listed in the regular portion of the annual meeting program. Additional roles include, and are not limited to session chair, commentator, panelist (including roundtables), and shorter (<10 minute) titled work-in-progress talks. Being listed as an organizer is exempted from being counted as a published role.

Are all authors of accepted papers listed in the program?

All authors of a accepted papers will be listed in the program. In the case of papers with multiple authors all authors will be listed in the program, but only the author(s) that is/are presenting the paper at the annual meeting has/have to register for the annual meeting.
