THE EVALUATION OF ABSTRACTS AND PAPERS

The evaluation of abstracts and papers will be made will be made by two different evaluators, in a blind-review system. These are people with a large theoretical and scientific experience. They will note from 1 to 5, 1 for insufficient and 5 for excellent.
Abstracts and papers that will be graded with minimum 4 by each assesor will be accepted. Abstracts and paper that are graded lower will be sent back for corrections. The process of evaluation will resume: the rewritten abstract or paper will be accepted with a minimum grade of 4 by each assesor. If its grade is below 4, the respective abstract/paper will be ultimately rejected.

Authors can choose to register their paper to the Scientific Sessions Section or to the Posters Section.

Also, the assesors can accept papers based on the condition that they are registered to the Posters Section, even though the author chose to register it to the Scientific Session Section . This will be brought to the authors’ attention, who will decide if they continue their participation to CiNPT 2015 or not.
