Presentation guideline

This guideline is aimed to make uniform structure of the presentations and to help other researchers to follow all presentations systematically. Presentation time is 10 minutes followed by 5 minutes question/answer/discussion. Please use following sections/order to maintain uniformity across the presentations.

Introduction (Initial slides)

Introductory information of your research work, goal, objective, etc. Please avoid generic information, such as hydropower, type of hydraulic turbines, renewable energy, etc. This symposium is on hydraulic machinery and all participants are aware of the generic knowledge.

Research method and approach (Middle slides)

This part of slides should contain research method explaining, the method you have used to solve the research problem. This can be, experimental approach, numerical approach, geometry, mesh, calibration, data verification and validation, data analysis techniques, etc.

Results (Later slides)

Here you will present the research results of your work.

Conclusions (End slides)

Here you will present the conclusions of your work. Use bullet points and write main outcome/conclusions. Try to avoid very long sentences. Conclusions must be clear and able to answer the goal/objectives presented in initial slides.

Information for the Manuscript presenting authors

1. We have scheduled manuscripts, which are finally submitted (production ready manuscript). If you have not submitted the final manuscript, it is not included in the presentation.
2. Only successfully presented manuscripts during the symposium will be published at IOP Science. Manuscripts, which are not presented during the symposium shall not be published.
3. Time given in the presentation schedule corresponds to the Beijing local time.
4. Total time of the presentation is 15 minutes, which includes 10 minutes presentation time + 4 minutes question-answer + 1 minutes switching to the next presenting author.
5. The presenting authors should send the presentation (ppt) to organizing committee’s email to check whether it can run properly on the computer at the conference hall before 10 August 2023.
6. Use specific format to name your file: topic_manuscript id_name of presenting author. For example, topic is ‘Hydraulic turbines’; manuscript id is ‘P100’; name is ‘Li Ming’. File name shall be Hydraulic turbines _P100_ Li Ming.
7. Session chair and volunteer will help to start the presentation and attach the microphone. All presentations will be played through local computer and projectors available in the respective conference rooms.
8. We suggest authors preparing Chinese version after submitting the full manuscripts to facilitate some reviewers' understanding and on-site communication. Authors could send it to the organizing committee’s email, but this is not compulsory.
9. Each Session chair will select a number of excellent papers and recommend them to the committee. The committee will finally select 12 best papers and the award for each paper is CNY 1000.

Peer review policy and proceedings licence

The peer review of papers published in the IOP Conference Series titles is managed by the organizers and proceedings editors. IOP publishing agreements require peer review to be undertaken in accordance with the principles outlined below. Peer review must be conducted through IOP platform. The conference organizer follows the guideline available from IOP Science. All submitted manuscripts will be reviewed under the category of single-blind review and accepted manuscripts will publish on Journal of Physics: Conference Series.

The organizing committee will strictly adhere to the following minimum standards. The information is directly borrowed from IOP Science.

• Unbiased consideration is given to all papers. Papers are considered regardless of the race, gender, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship or political philosophy of the authors.
• No terminology will be used that, in the opinion of IOP Publishing, is offensive or might be perceived to be offensive to others.
• Authors and editors agree to comply with our ethical policy.
• IOP Publishing has the right to investigate any suspicions and/or allegations of misconduct.
• Submission and peer review must be conducted in English.
• Reviewers shall give a clear statement of recommendation for each paper. Comments must be included to support their recommendation. These comments should be suitable for transmission to the author.
• Editors and organizers shall only accept papers where there is clear support from the reviewers.

Conference papers must meet all the usual standards of quality for an IOP Publishing publication. However, reviewers will take into account the nature of conference papers. Review papers are also welcomed and accepted. Reviewers will consider background papers more favourably than would be normal for a regular paper. These allowances shall not go so far as to approve papers of low scientific standard. Papers that have been published in written form elsewhere should not be considered.

Reviewers should consider the following key points related to scientific content, quality and presentation of the papers:

Technical Criteria

• Scientific merit; scientific rigour, accuracy and correctness.
• Clarity of expression; communication of ideas; readability and discussion of concepts.
• Sufficient discussion of the context of the work, and suitable referencing.

Quality Criteria

• Originality: Is the work relevant and novel?
• Motivation: Does the problem considered have a sound motivation? All papers should clearly demonstrate the scientific interest of the results.
• Repetition: Have significant parts of the manuscript already been published?
• Length: Is the content of the work of sufficient scientific interest to justify its length?

Presentation Criteria

• Title: Is it adequate and appropriate for the content of the article?
• Abstract: Does it contain the essential information of the article? Is it complete? Is it suitable for inclusion by itself in an abstracting service?
• Diagrams, figures, tables and captions: Are they essential and clear?
• Text and mathematics: Are they brief but still clear? If you recommend shortening, please suggest what should be removed.
• Conclusion: Does the paper contain a clear conclusion. The conclusion should summarize what has been learned and why it is interesting and useful?

Accepted & Indexing

When the manuscript is completely accepted by the reviewers, authors can deliver the final manuscript with correct formatting. Please note that the manuscripts, which are in the category of ‘major revision’ and ‘minor revision’ are not considered as ‘completely accepted.’ IOP Publishing requires to meet formatting guideline absolutely. Any manuscript, which does not meet the formatting guidelines, will be returned by the IOP publisher and the publication of all manuscripts will be halted. This will delay the publication process. We do not have permission to edit/modify any manuscript. Authors themselves are responsible for the final formatting.

Symposium will submit all manuscript, finally accepted by the reviewers and presented in IAHR 2023 Asia Kashgar, to the IOP Publisher Journal of Physics: Conference Series (JPCS) after the symposium. IOP Publishing provides volume data to the abstracting and indexing providers on publication. However, it is at the discretion of each provider as to how quickly they upload new content.
