Abstract Rights Transfer to IEEE

IMPORTANT: When authors submit abstracts via the linked Paper submission(On the left column), it is understood that the authors have resolved their intellectual property right issues with their employers and other parties involved, and have transferred their abstract rights to IEEE. Authors who have concerns on their intellectual property rights of their abstracts could consult their attorneys for legal advices (for example, filing provisional patent applications). The abstracts will be kept confidential until they have been accepted and placed in the conference program. After that time (around the midmonth of May 2013), the abstracts may be published both online and in print, or be accessible through the "Meeting Planner" to help attendees to prepare and/or individualize their conference programs.

Abstract Submission Notes

Abstract Format: Each abstract has to be broken down into the following three sections when you submit it:

(1) Background, Motivation and Objective

(2) Statement of Contribution/Methods

(3) Results, Discussion and Conclusions

In addition, the total number of characters excluding spaces, title, author names, and affiliations are limited to 2500.

Figures and Tables: Figures and tables are allowed as long as they are in Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG or .jpg) or Graphic Interchange Format (GIF or .gif) file format. Each figure or table will count for 500 characters towards the allowed total of 2500 characters. An abstract will also be limited to one page, including all figures.

Reducing Size of Figures and Tables: Since all figures and tables need to fit into one abstract page, they will not be displayed big in size in your submitted abstracts. If your figures and/or tables are big, please reduce their sizes so that both the width and height of these items do not exceed 800 pixels before you upload them during abstract submissions (in Microsoft (MS) Windows, you could place your mouse on the figure file for a few seconds to find both the width and height of the figure in unit of pixels and see if they are over 800 pixels). Smaller figure and table sizes will ensure us to produce an electronic abstract book with a reasonable file size, which would also be helpful in the abstract review process and be convenient for users when they download hundreds of abstracts of the entire conference later. There are multiple ways to reduce size of figures. One way is to use the Microsoft Paint program that comes with your MS Windows to open the file. Then, in the "Image" menu, select "Stretch/Skew" and enter appropriate percentage (100%) for both the horizontal and vertical dimensions relative to the original sizes. Finally, save your figure with "Save As" from the "File" pull-down menu in a .jpg or .gif format.

Production of Figure and Table Files: There are multiple ways to produce figure and table files in the JPEG or GIF format. The following shows you one way as an example. If you have a Microsoft (MS) Windows Operating system, you could have your figures or tables shown on your computer screen first and then use the "Print Screen" key on your keyboard to capture the entire screen into an invisible "Clip Board" image. Then you could open the Microsoft Paint program that comes with your MS Windows. From the "Edit" menu, you could paste the captured screen image into the program. Select your figures and tables by drawing a box around them using a rectangular selecting tool and then click "Copy To ..." in the "Edit" menu. This will bring up a popup window to allow you save the selection into a ".bmp" file. Open the ".bmp" file first with the Microsoft Paint from the "File" menu, and then select "Save As". When a popup dialog appears, select the file type as "JPEG" or "GIF" to produce the desired file format for your use during the abstract submissions.

Oral or Poster Preference: For "2013 Far East Forum on Nondestructive Evaluation/Testing: New Technology, & Application", the presentation type that can be selected by authors during the abstract submission is either "Oral" or "Poster". Although the Technical Program Committee (TPC) will consider the authors' presentation preferences during the abstract evaluation process, the final decision on "Oral" or "Poster" of an abstract will be made by the TPC. Please notice that whether an abstract is accepted or not by the conference will solely depend on the quality of the abstract, not on authors' "Oral" or "Poster" selection.

Abstract Evaluations: Your abstract will be evaluated by the TPC. The decision by the TPC whether an abstract is accepted, rejected, or combined with other abstracts is final. In addition, whether an abstract is selected for an oral or poster presentation by the TPC is also final. As stated in the Call for Papers: "Prospective authors should note that poster sessions provide an alternative format which allows for greater flexibility and expanded audience interaction."

Presentation Guides: If your abstracts are accepted, please check the Oral Pesentation Guide and/or Poster Presentation Guide as appropriate to prepare your presentations.
