Review Process

Stage 1: Abstract Selection

All submissions received by Paste 2020 are subject to all stages of the review process in order to be approved for publication in the proceedings and included in the technical program.
Stage 1: Abstract Selection
All abstracts will be reviewed and commented on by Paste 2020’s Technical Committee. Approval of an abstract at this stage does not automatically guarantee that the final version will be accepted and included in the program. The authors of accepted abstracts will receive comments to consider and include in the final version of their article.
Stage 2: Article Selection
Articles must be written in accordance with the standards established for the seminar. Articles which fully comply with the requirements will be peer-reviewed.
Once articles are reviewed, comments will be sent to authors and a final version of the work will be requested. The final article should include the comments and suggestions made by the Committee.
Stage 3: Final Article Approval

Final articles will be reviewed by the Technical Committee to ensure that all modifications have been made. At this stage, articles will be confirmed for oral or poster presentation. Final articles approved for publication will be published in the Paste 2020 proceedings. At this stage authors must register to the seminar to confirm their participation.
