SELECTION, NOTIFICATION & RESPONSIBILITIES

Selection Process: The POWER-GEN International 2018 Program Committee is composed of executives and engineers from all sectors of the power generation industry. This committee will carefully review all abstracts submitted by the March 9, 2018 deadline with the ultimate goal of forming a highly educational and informative conference that addresses topical and timely power generation industry issues.

All abstracts will be evaluated on the strength of the abstract submitted, including content matter, market trend and relevance of the material. The program committee will give preference to abstracts that include utility representation. Consultants and manufacturers may submit abstracts of a non-commercial nature, but all blatant commercial sales pitches will not be accepted for presentation.

Notification: All primary contacts will be notified in writing no later than June 29, 2018 as to whether or not their proposed POWER-GEN International abstract has been selected for presentation.

Primary Contact Responsibilities: The primary contact will be responsible for meeting all deadlines and requirements regarding the paper presentation or panel participation. The primary contact is required to submit a final manuscript to be included in the on on-line conference proceedings by September 14, 2018. The primary contact must also agree to submit a PowerPoint presentation by September 14, 2018 for review by the session chair.  The primary contact also needs to notify conference management of any changes, additions or corrections in author, co-author or panelist names, paper titles or availability to present the submitted paper at the appointed date and time. Unless otherwise noted on the abstract, the presenter will be considered the primary contact.

Speaker Registration: One presenter per paper accepted will receive complimentary ‘Full Delegate’ conference registration which includes entrance to the conference and exhibit hall, delegate lunches, exhibit hall reception and access to the on-line conference proceedings.  All travel and hotel arrangements are the sole responsibility of the speaker.

Co-presenters are encouraged to attend POWER-GEN International, and we will gladly include their names in the conference program. However, they will be responsible for their own conference registration, hotel accommodations and other conference-related expenses.
