The evaluation categories are like that: “Introduction and literature, methodology, significance, appeal, interest, exceptionality, currency of the issue, and overall evaluation.”
Each abstract is sent to at least 3 or a maximum of 6 referees who are the members of the scientific committee of the year and whose names are announced on the web after the end of each year’s evaluation process.
Referees evaluate each category within a scale from 0 to 10. The abstracts which get a final average of 7 points from 10 get a right to be presented in the symposium.
