This explains the process of preparing content presented in various formats at the annual meeting to be hosted on the ICS website.
|State of the Art/ Round Tables||The State of the Art lecturers and Round Tables title/content is decided on by the Local Organising Committee and specifically the Annual Scientific Chair. The list of suggested names/content is sent to the elected Scientific Chair and Board of Trustees to confirm final selection.|
|Workshops||All workshops are submitted by ICS members via the ICS website. The Education Committee scores all workshops in accordance with the review guidelines and then a meeting is held (inviting the Scientific Chair) to confirm final selection.|
|Abstract||All abstracts are submitted via the ICS website. The Scientific Committee and additional selected individuals score all abstracts in accordance with the review guidelines and then a meeting is held to confirm final selection. The ICS office prepares and type sets the abstracts to be sent to NAU for publication.|
|Symposiums||All symposium programmes are proposed by the company involved and are forwarded via the ICS office to the Annual Scientific and Scientific Chair for approval. The Annual Meeting Chair cannot Chair a symposium.|
|Any other session||Other sessions are prepared by the ICS office and relevant committees and working groups. These sessions are checked by the Education and Scientific Committee and the Board of Trustees.|
