List of INTER Abstracts 2021

The acceptance of abstracts will be administered by a review team chosen from the whole group of INTER members. In order to find a review team, the procedure will be as follows:

•    The titles of all  abstracts are now published on our homepage (see below)
•    INTER members may apply for the review team by sending an E-mail to Rainer Goerlacher∂partner.kit edu.

They should indicate which abstracts (part 1 or 2) they want to review. It is important that reviewers have a broad knowledge covering these topics proven by a number of own papers within these parts.

•    The chairman appoints the reviewers and they will receive a password for downloading the abstracts. Please note that the review should be performed within two weeks.

Abstracts Part 1 (for reviewers only, password required)

Abstracts Part 2 (for reviewers only, password required)
