To have your paper considered for presentation at the IEEE PVSC, please submit a 3 page evaluation abstract and a short abstract of no more than 300 words (including title, authors & affiliations) in length for display on the conference website.

Continued This Year!

The IEEE PVSC has discontinued the "No paper no podium" policy. Authors are no longer required to publish a full proceedings manuscript article for each presentation and may now opt to only publish the short 300 word text abstract. You may indicate your publication preference on the abstract submission form.

Short Abstract Format

The Short Abstract should give a brief summary of the topics and main conclusions of the paper and presentation, and must be 300 words or fewer in length (including title, authors & affiliations). The Short Abstract will be viewable for accepted papers at the conference website, and will be linked to the paper title in the Conference Program to give conference goers more detail on your paper, and help plan which technical sessions to attend.  

Evaluation Document Format

The 3-page Evaluation Document is the most essential part of your abstract submission, since it is the part that will be reviewed by the Program Committee.  To help them with their assessment of your paper, please make sure that your Evaluation Document is no more than 3 pages in length, and includes these main points:  

  • Full title of the paper
  • Full author list and affiliation
  • Introduction or background of the paper topic
  • Main experimental and/or theoretical results
  • Analysis of the results, clear exposition of the main findings
  • Discussion of the significance of the work for the field
  • Summary of the work
  • References 

Evaluation documents are limited to 3 pages and the file must be uploaded in PDF format. Please use the template below to prepare your abstract:
