SOHO Scientific Committee

The primary responsibility of the SOHO Scientific Committee is to review abstracts submitted for the annual meeting. Members of the committee provide accept-or-reject decisions for each abstract in addition to selecting abstracts for oral presentation and poster presentation. Committee members evaluate the quality of submitted abstracts on the basis of the following criteria: novelty of the research, significance of the findings and clarity.
