Abstract submission

The abstracts should be 1 page long and must include one illustrative figure outlining the quality of the results. A comparison with reference solutions or SPHERIC benchmark cases is highly encouraged.

A pdf version of the abstract should be submitted by the 17th of February 2023 via email (TBC). Authors are requested to indicate in their email: 

  • whether the abstract refers to (a) fundamental SPH research or (b) SPH practical/industrial applications
  • assign their contribution to at least three Workshop Topics

The email should have "SPHERIC 2023 Abstract - Last_Name_of_Corresponding_Author" as subject. Note, the abstract submission process will open early December 2022 following an announcement.

Review process

The abstracts will be assessed by at least three SPH experts from the scientific committee using a blind peer-review process. The quality of the abstracts will be assessed using averaged ratings for three equally important criteria than can be found in the "guide for authors and reviewers" document also, briefly highlighted below:

  • for a fundamental SPH research abstract the criteria are (1) novelty, (2) applicability/expected impact, and (3) improvements/quality of results
  • for an industrial application abstract the criteria are (1) novelty, (2) usability, and (3) competitiveness

Notification of acceptance for publication will be given on or before the 17th of March 2023 (TBC).


After notification of accepted abstracts, authors must prepare and submit their full manuscript according to the SPHERIC templates, the paper must not exceed 8-pages in total. Templates are available for MS Word (click here) or LaTeX (click here).  It is important NOT to put any page numbers in the final paper. It is also recommended not to spend too much space explaining "standard/well known SPH equations" on the paper, as readers are assumed to be familiar with the basic SPH formulation. 

Papers should be submitted until the 28th April 2023 (TBC)  in pdf format via email (TBC). The email should have SPHERIC 2023 Article - "Last_Name_of_Corresponding_author" as object. Students can enter the "Libersky Prize" by indicating their intention on the submission email. 

At least one unique registration must correspond to each paper and the registration should be finalized no later than 5th May 2023 (TBC). This author will be the presenter at the workshop. There is a maximum of one presentation for each delegate during the workshop. 

Papers with no registered authors by 5th May 2023 (TBC)  will be marked invalid and will NOT be published in the workshop proceedings or have a presentation slot (cf. Registration and payment Section).

Libersky student prize

The Libersky Prize is awarded at every SPHERIC Workshop for the best student "paper & presentation" judged by the Scientific Committee. Student authors who would like to sign up for the student prize should indicate it in their email during the submission of the paper. To be eligible for the student prize, the student must be the first author on the paper, present the work and attend the final ceremony

The award is named in honour of Prof. Larry Libersky, one of the pioneers of SPH in engineering.
