Conference management tool ConfTool is used to handle submissions of authors/presenters to the SYP conference. All authors/presenters are required to register and submit their Tier 1 paper or Tier 2 abstract (see below for Guidelines) through the tool.

NOTE: Registration to ConfTool does not count as registration to the conference itself. All authors/presenters are additionally required to register to the conference using a separate form, see Registration for details.

NOTE2: Presentations to the conference will not be submitted through ConfTool. More information on presentations will be provided by e-mail before the conference.

The general topics cover all fields of nuclear science and technology. Author contributions  are divided in two tiers, depending on the technical content, target audience and the level of authors' involvement. The selection of the most suitable tier is left for the author, but some general guidelines are provided below.

Tier 1

  • Technical / scientific topics introducing new and significant work
  • Submission of a short paper (max 4 pages) + oral / poster presentation at the conference
  • Contributions accepted based on a light peer-review process done on the submitted short paper
  • Accepted papers are published on-line
  • Submission of papers:
    • Short papers are submitted to Conftool (link provided above).
    • The authors are requested to use a template provided here (also found in Downloadable Content): TEMPLATE FOR TIER 1 SHORT PAPER
  • Example topics: fission reactor analysis, nuclear power plant simulations, thermal hydraulics, severe accidents, nuclear fuel cycle, final disposal, automation, material science, fusion technology, probabilistic risk analysis, accelerator applications, medical applications, radiochemistry, computational methods, etc.

Tier 2

  • Reserved for less technical presentations directed towards wider audience
  • Oral presentation at the conference, no paper
  • Contributions accepted and selected based on one-page abstracts (used for review only, max one page)
  • Presentations are published on-line
  • Submission of abstracts:  
    • Abstracts are written directly in a text box in Conftool.
    • It is advised to write the abstract first in a text editor (e.g. MS Word) and then copy-paste it to the text box in Conftool.
  • Example topics: licensing and construction, economics, decommissioning, emerging technologies, national and international research projects, education and training, communication and public relations, etc.
