Peer Review Process: Abstracts and manuscripts submitted to the SBEC are subject to a series of steps, which lead to the acceptance for presentation or rejection. The abstracts submitted to SBEC are sorted into different categories by the organizing committee. The conference and program chairs appoint appropriate reviewers for the abstracts from the program committee as well as experts in the specified disciplines. Abstracts will be accepted for either a poster or an oral presentation, or declined. The senior authors of the accepted abstracts may also be invited to submit a full-length manuscript (submission of manuscripts is optional), as well as to present the findings at the annual meeting. Upon receipt of the optional, full-length manuscript, the conference chair will assign at least three reviewers for each paper to evaluate the originality and novelty of the research (Scores: 1 = Rejection, 2 = Accept after minor revisions, 3 = Acceptable, 4 = Very good paper, and 5 = Excellent work). Accepted manuscripts are considered refereed papers under the umbrella of “accept or reject”, meaning there is no communications with the authors for major revisions (minor revisions are allowed at the conference chairs discretion). All the accepted abstracts and papers will be published proceeding book entitled BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING: RECENT DEVELOPMENTS that will be available at the meeting. A limited number of abstracts will be invited by SBEC program committee to submit full-length manuscripts for publication in the peer-reviewed prestigious journal: Biomedical Science Instrumentation (IAE Publisher).
