Acceptance of synopses as contributions
Authors will be notified by email by 15 June 2020 as to whether their synopses have been accepted and, if so, in which format they are to be presented (i.e. overview oral, regular oral, overview poster or regular poster). They will also be informed of the assigned presentation session.
Submission of manuscripts
After acceptance, a manuscript must be submitted for each contribution. Any contribution for which no manuscript is received by the given deadline will be removed from the conference programme. The deadline for submission of the manuscripts as PDF files through IAEA-INDICO is 9 April 2021 (Central European Time). The IAEA will not accept submissions after the deadline. Specifications and instructions for the layout of the full manuscript as well as for the preparation of posters will be posted by 15 June 2020. The manuscript must be submitted through IAEA-INDICO and uploaded as a PDF file. IAEA-INDICO will be reopened for submission of manuscripts on 31 July 2020 (Central European Time).
Dissemination and publication routes
The IAEA will not be issuing proceedings of the 28th IAEA Fusion Energy Conference. Instead, synopses, presentation slides, posters and manuscripts compiled as “Conference Material” will be made available on the IAEA Fusion Portal. The primary publishing route is the IAEA journal Nuclear Fusion. Authors may, however, choose to leave the manuscript as the final record. The online conference material will be updated in 2021 with links to the Nuclear Fusion journal articles, and digital object identifiers will be appended to the manuscripts as required.
