Instruction for Authors
The conference accepts oral and poster presentations, optionally accompanied by an extended abstract in the conference proceedings. Acceptance of contributions for presentation at the conference is based on short abstracts (150-500 words).
Inclusion in the programme requires early registration of the presenting author. As a rule, one oral presentation and one poster presentation is admissible per presenting author. Exceptions might be considered, by invitation. Keynote lecturers are invited to submit another oral contribution with a substantially different topic.
If your short abstract is accepted, you will have the option to submit an extended paper which will be sent to one of the peer-reviewed journals, Mathematical Geosciences, Computers and Geosciences or Natural Resources Research (consistent with the editorial policies of those journals) to be considered for publication in a special issue of that journal.
All submitted extended abstracts will be shared with conference attendees on a USB drive. This is an optional step and not required for your short abstract to be accepted nor is an extended abstract required if your short abstract for a conference presentation is accepted. Extended abstracts are due on April 29, 2019, should follow the templates provided below, and should be submitted as a PDF.
Long Abstracts are 3-5 pages are submitted in pdf format and need to follow the precise templates provided:
Slides need to be uploaded ahead of the conference in pdf, ppt, pptx, or odp format. For other formats please contact the office with example files way ahead of time. The projectors will use 16/9 format (please check). There will be no slide template provided.
All presentations are in English. To ensure a high standard of presentations, please train your presentation before. Standard oral presentations are 14minutes plus 5 minutes of discussion. Allowing for 1min of transition and announcements. Invited speakers will be informed about the length of their slots.
Posters must be in landscape, with a maximum dimension of 36 inches by 46 inches. Larger posters or portrait versions are not acceptable. Poster presenters are expected to: (1) print the poster at their convenience and bring it to the conference, (2) be present at the poster during the poster presentation sessions and (3) provide some A4 or letter printouts of the poster to interested visitors. It is good practice that these A4/letter handouts are readable: if all the text can be read in that small format it will be also comfortably readable in large form on its panel.
A poster must state at least: the title of the contribution, the authors, the e-mail of the corresponding author, the assigned presentation number (session and poster number) in the lower left corner corner and that it is presented at the IAMG 2019 conference. No further format requirements are given. It is also recommended that a photo of the presenting author be included in the lower right corner, such that it would be easy for interested delegates to identify and approach the authors. Velcro will be provided on site to attach the posters to the boards.
