* REVISED * Deadlines & Paper Acceptance Process
Authors of accepted abstracts will be invited to provide a draft manuscript by Friday, 08 May 2020. Some basic, but important requirements to keep in mind when creating your draft which can be found on the paper template:
- Paper length = 12 page maximum

- Footer is compliant with template

An Author’s Kit, containing detailed instructions and additional guidelines for submitting papers to ICES can be found on the Author Materials page.
Draft Papers will be reviewed by 3 independent reviewers that were pre-selected by your session chair(s). Each of these reviewers were selected to review papers that are in their own area of expertise and have relevant knowledge of your technical content. All reviews will be conducted within the Easy Chair system and will include detailed feedback, revision requests and a score by each reviewer.
