Selection process for accepted abstracts

The sole decision for the selection of accepted abstracts is with the Scientific Committee of ACOSCM. All submitted abstracts will be carefully reviewed and presented to the full committee. If more abstracts will be submitted for the available presentation slots around the four themes, all abstracts related to one theme will be ranked by the committee. The top ranked abstracts will be accepted and the authors notified respecively. The ranking structure will be decided by majority vote amongst the members of the Scientific Committee if required.
