Student Papers

Students may submit through the regular submission portal. They may also indicate that they wish their submission to be considered for:

  • Solvay Student Paper Competition
  • Poster + 10 minute presentation
  • Poster only


  • Notifications of acceptance will be sent  to the corresponding author.
  • Presenting authors must register and pay the conference fee before the submission will be scheduled for presentation and included in the printed program.
  • All abstracts must be submitted and presented in clear English with accurate grammar and spelling of a quality suitable for publication.
  • Upon submission, the corresponding author accepts that the content cannot be modified or corrected after a final deadline unless required by the scientific committee.
  • Submission of the abstract constitutes the authors’ consent to publication (e.g. symposium website, programs, etc.). The corresponding author warrants that he/she is the sole owner or has the rights of all the information and content.  Exempt are authors who are direct employees of the U.S. Government (i.e., not U.S. Government contractors), whereby papers are not subject to copyright protection in the U.S.
