Call for Abstracts

Thank you

The Scientific Symposium Committee would like to thank everyone for the overwhelming response to the call for abstracts. We are absolutely delighted by the quality and number of submissions received. We received over 650 abstracts from 46 different countries.

We are still committed to delivering an engaging scientific program; therefore, authors will be provided an opportunity to modify or resubmit their abstract from June 2021. Current abstracts will remain in our system as submitted unless an author decides to withdraw their paper. The submission portal will reopen to accept new abstracts and to make modifications to existing abstracts from Monday 14 June – Tuesday 15 February 2022.

Abstract Submission Instructions

Please read through the submission instructions listed below before preparing your abstract:

Step 1: Read the General Policies and Requirements for the submission of abstracts.
Step 2: Write your abstract following the Abstract Format & Layout Guidelines.
Step 3: Abstracts must not exceed a 300-word limit. The word limit relates only to the text of the abstract and does not include title, authors and institutions.
Step 4: Click on the button below to complete the Abstract Submission Form.

  • The presenting author will be required to register for the Conference in order to ensure their abstract(s) is included in the final program. Deadline for presenting author registration is Wednesday 13 April 2022.
  • All submissions must be completed electronically via the online submission form. If you are unable to submit in this manner, please contact the Conference Managers at or phone: +61 2 9265 0700 for further information.
  • All abstracts must be prepared according to the guidelines provided. Abstracts will only be accepted if submitted within the format and layout guidelines.
  • There is no limit to the number of abstracts that may be submitted by an individual. However, splitting of a body of work into multiple abstracts is discouraged and consolidation into one abstract is preferred. In addition, a maximum of one oral presentation may be allocated to an accepted author.
  • Authors are required to acknowledge that by submitting an abstract, permission is automatically given for the abstract (if approved) to be made available on the website and via the app, and possibly published more broadly.
  • Authors will be required to indicate if they will be submitting a pre-recorded presentation if the event becomes a hybrid.
  • Abstracts must not exceed a 300-word limit. The word limit relates only to the text of the abstract and does not include title, authors and institutions.
  • Use single line spacing.
  • No tables, figures or images are allowed.
  • Abstracts must be free of typographical and grammatical errors.
  • Standard abbreviations may be used for common terms only. Otherwise, any abbreviation should be given in brackets after the first full use of the word. Abbreviations may be used in the title, provided the name in full is outlined in the body of the abstract.
  • You will be asked to provide a short biography (up to 150 words) with your submission.
  • You will be asked to nominate your preference for oral, mini oral, hardcopy or digital poster presentation.
  • Please include degrees or professional titles (e.g. Dr, Prof., etc).
  • It is the author’s responsibility to ensure the title, author and affiliation details entered in the paper submission site are correct and exactly as they should be published on the abstract and all Conference materials.

Authors must select one of the following streams that their abstract relates to:

Material growth, structural properties and characterization, phonons

Wide-bandgap semiconductors (GaN, SiC, Ga2O3)

Semiconductors for MIR and THz

Carbon: nanotubes and graphene


Topological states of matter, topological Insulators and Weyl semimetals, Majorana fermions in solid state

Low dimensional systems (Quantum Hall, transport theory, 1D, 2D)

Spintronics and spin phenomena

2D materials beyond graphene

Charge, valley and spin qubits

Electron devices and applications

Quantum optics, nanophotonics

Complex oxide and chalcogenide semiconductors

Optical properties, optoelectronics, solar cells

Organic semiconductors

Boron nitride: defect properties, photonics, polaritons and growth

The following presentation types will be available for selection upon submission of an abstract:

Oral Presentation
Oral Presentation: 15-minute presentation, comprising of 12 minutes + 3 minutes for questions.

Poster Presentations
Mini Oral Presentation + Digital Poster: 5-minute oral presentation comprising of a 3-minute pitch to summarise your digital poster + 2 minutes of questions

All digital poster presenters will be allocated one 30-minute timeslot at the Digital Poster Kiosks to provide an opportunity to present their poster. These 30-minute allocations will be scheduled throughout the Conference and the schedule will be available for all delegates to see via the Conference App.

Hardcopy Poster: a limited number of hardcopy posters will be available for display in the Pyrmont Foyer with a change-over of posters each day.

If you are required to edit or modify your existing abstract, please download the ‘how to guide’.
Should you have any technical difficulties, please contact the Conference Managers by emailing along with an explanation of your issue.

The Conference is supporting attendance to those that are from low-income or lower-middle income economies and PhD students and researchers in their early stage of their career (including undergraduate students and students from 5 – 10 years post PhD by the Conference dates). Only oral abstracts that are accepted are eligible to receive this support.

To submit your abstract, please login to eOrganiser with the same author details as your abstract submission and follow the steps below:

  1. Click on the ‘Submission’ tab and then the ‘+Submit’ sub-tab and select the ‘Conference Attendance Support Application’ button.
  2. Select your oral abstract that has been submitted previously.
  3. Fill in the application form, filling in all required fields.
  4. Select the blue ‘Preview and Submit’ button before previewing your submission and clicking on the blue ‘submit’ button.

Should you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact the Conference Managers by emailing or calling +61 2 9265 0700.

The ICPS 2022 Program Committee and Session Convenors will review all submitted abstracts and asses them in relation to quality and relevance to the Conference streams. Notifications of acceptance will be sent via email to the submitting author on Tuesday 29 March 2022. Abstracts submitted for oral presentations that cannot be accommodated within the program will be considered and reviewed for an alternative presentation type.

The Conference Managers will not be held responsible for abstract submissions not received via the website or for submission errors caused by internet service outages, hardware or software delays, power outages or unforeseen events.
