Abstract submission

    Due to a current situation regarding COVID-19, it has been decided that the abstract submission (without a full paper) is sufficient to attend the Enerstock2021 conference. There is now the possibility to edit and extend your already submitted abstract(s) up to 1000 words until November 30, 2020. The structure of the abstract remains the same (Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Conslusion). You can add also references: A.B. Author, C.-D. Author, E.V. Author, Journal. 54(3), 1234-5678 (2016).

    Anyone who would like to publish scientific papers is warmly welcomed to send them to the Special Issues dedicated to this conference. One Special Issue on Crystals for TES (Crystals) is already open for submission, while the others will be opened after the conference next year. Please be aware that all papers must undergo a review process of the particular journal. Only good quality scientific papers will be accepted.

    Presentation Formats

    The Scientific Committee will ultimately decide whether a submitted paper will be selected for an oral or a poster presentation. A considerable part of the invited talks will be selected based on scientific merit of submitted abstracts. Please make sure to indicate the preferred presentation type on the abstract submission web site.

    The scheduled time for each oral presentation is 15 minutes, followed by a 5-minute discussion and for keynote by 20 minutes and plenary lectures by 40 minutes followed by 5 minutes discussion. With this in mind speakers are requested to stay within the time given. While the names of several authors may be included on the title of the abstract, only one author will be allowed to give the oral presentation.

    Method of Abstract Submission
    • All abstracts must be submitted only via the online form that is accessible after to create the new user account with your e-mail address and password.
    • Authors will be notified about the delivery of their abstract by e-mail immediately. In case you will not receive confirmation within 24 hours, please check your spam folder and in case of no confirmation e-mail, please contact: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
    • Authors will have access to their abstracts until the deadline and will have possibility to edit abstracts with draft status, or submit another one.
    • All correspondence concerning the abstract will be sent to submitting author’s e-mail address.

    Abstract Submission Instructions

    • Abstracts can be submitted on topics listed above.
    • Abstracts and papers have to be written in English.
    • Fill in the submitting author's name and e-mail address properly - these contact details will serve for further correspondence with the author(s).

    Abstract Layout

    • The length of the abstracts should not be more than 2 pages, the maximum number of words allowed is 1000. 
    • Title: Make the title of the abstract brief, clearly indicating the nature of the investigation. Use a capital letter for the first letter in the title only (DO NOT capitalize each word).
    • Names of the authors: Submit the full given name(s) and the family name. Do not include degrees or professional titles.
    • Original studies should have uniform structure (Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, and Conclusion)

    Example of formatting: 

    • Introduction: Type the headings Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, and Conclusions in bold.
    • Materials and Methods: Do not write the headings on separate lines. Start the text of the paragraph immediately after the colon (“:”) without pressing the “Enter” key.
    • Results: Example text.
    • Conclusion: Example text. 


    Good research should be well justified, well planned, and appropriately designed, so that it can properly address the research question. Paper should publish based on the copyright that constitutes authorship. All authors are responsible for the quality, accuracy, and ethics of the work. Republication of a paper in another language, or simultaneously in multiple journals with different audiences, may be acceptable, provided that there is full and prominent disclosure of its original source at the time of submission of the manuscript.


    Plagiarism is the use of other's published and unpublished ideas or words (or other intellectual property) without attribution or permission and presenting them as new and original rather than derived from an existing source. At Enerstock, we strongly discourage and are against this ruthless act. If found guilty, to any extent, Enerstock will fight for Plagiarism. Self-plagiarism refers to the practice of an author using portions of their previous writings on the same topic in another of their publications, without specifically citing it formally in quotes.


    Advertisers and donors should have no control over editorial material under any circumstances. Commercial advertisements should not be placed adjacent to any editorial matter that discusses the product being advertised, nor adjacent to any article reporting research on the advertised product.

Artwork and lettering should be large and clear enough so that the poster is readable from a distance of 1.5 m. 

    Poster Viewing

    Participants will view posters during poster sessions 1 and 2, coffee and lunch breaks. Presenters are encouraging to be at their posters during coffee breaks, but this is not mandatory.
