Practical Guidelines for abstract and slides/poster submission by the CC.

Scope and responsibilities of the ALICE Editorial Board and the ALICE Conference Committee can be found below.


Editorial Board (EB)

The Editorial Board (EB) has 7 members ( see ). The EB members are appointed by the MB and confirmed by the CB and the mandate is two years renewable. Ex-officio members of the EB are the Physics Coordinator, one Deputy Spokesperson and CB Deputy Chairperson.

The Editorial Board (EB) is responsible for refereeing and subsequent approval of relevant ALICE publications concerning both physical and technical aspects of the experiment including contributions to proceedings, and ALICE internal notes. It has the task to guarantee an efficient procedure and an effective quality assurance concerning ALICE publications.

The procedure for submitting a publication to the EB for review and approval is as follows:

The publication should before submission have been approved by the appropriate body (project leader or Physics Working Group) and by all authors of the publication. The pre-approval should be stated when the publication is submitted to the EB. The publication will be returned to the corresponding author in the absence of this pre-approval. The publication should be sent to the EB chair who will distribute it to the other members of the EB. The submission of the publication should be made in such a way that it allows the EB at least two weeks to guarantee a proper review process. The EB will not guarantee a review process on a shorter timescale even if this means missing a submission deadline.


Conference Committee (CC)

The Conference Committee (CC) has 8 members ( see ).  The CC members are appointed by the MB and confirmed by the CB and the mandate is two years renewable. Ex-officio members of the CC are the Physics Coordinator, one Deputy Spokesperson and EB Chairperson. ALICE CC members can be contacted by sending a mail to alice-cc-chairs@cern.ch .

The CC coordinates the call for, and the selection of ALICE speakers for oral presentations in Conferences. Another task is to review all abstracts and presentations submitted by ALICE collaborators to assure high scientific quality. The CC has the task to guarantee an efficient procedure and an effective internal quality assurance concerning ALICE conference representation. A list of conferences is available here.
