We are very pleased to invite you to participate in the next ISES Solar World Congress 2021, which will take place virtually from October 25 to 29, 2021.

There are several ways to participate in SWC 2021:

During the abstract submission process, you will be given the option to specify your preference for one of these formats. The final decision on acceptance of the abstract and the on the presentation format will be communicated to you after the review of all abstracts is complete. 

If your abstract is selected for an oral presentation, you will be required to submit a pre-recorded video of your presentation no later than one a few weeks in advance of the Congress to allow the other registrants to preview it. During the Congress you will be requested to join a live session to provide a brief overview of your work and respond to Q&A. Your video presentation as well as the recording of the Q&A will remain online after the congress.

If your abstract is selected for a poster presentation, you will be provided a digital poster wall in the poster area of the Congress where you can upload a PDF version of your poster, your personal info and, at your option, a short video presentation of your poster.
