Guidelines for the preparation and submission of abstracts

–  Each abstract will be submitted to one of the 63 sessions that conform the scientific program.  Please explore this program here and choose the appropriate session for your abstract before creating it.

– The preparation and the submission of an abstract can only be made through the online platform once the corresponding author has registered and completed his/her personal information (Step 1).

– To create an abstract you must access inside the platform the area Submit an Abstract (Step 2).

– At the beginning of the process the author must choose one of two possible options: (1) Create a New Short Abstract or (2) create a New Extended Abstract.  These alternatives are mutually exclusive one from the other.  The Organizing Committee considers that the main objective of the abstracts is to support the presentation of the most relevant aspects of ongoing and/or finalized research to be presented for scientific discussion within the geological community during the Congress. With this purpose, short abstracts are absolutely sufficient, although it is understandable that some authors may consider submitting an extended abstract to present details of their research.  Consequently, the type of abstract (short or extended) will not be a parameter for the assessment of the quality or pertinence during the review process nor to select the type of presentation (oral or poster) by the Scientific Committee.  The evaluation will be based exclusively on the clarity of the presentation of the results.

– Once the type of abstract has been selected, the system will display areas for edition on which the content of the abstract must be introduced.  You may write directly on these areas or you may “copy-and-paste” from an external document.  It is not necessary to define a particular layout or type of letter. The online platform will automatically format the abstract.

– While preparing the abstract please consider the following general characteristics for each type of abstract (please note that for the character counting the system includes spaces):

Short Abstract

* Title: Maximum 190 characters
* Authors: Maximum 100 characters
* Affiliations: Maximum 800 characters
* Content of the Abstract: Minimum 1.500 and maximum 2.500 characters (may include sub-sections and references directly in the text)

 * No figure

Extended Abstract

* Title: Maximum 190 characters
* Authors: Maximum 100 characters
* Affiliations: Maximum 800 characters
* Content of the Abstract: Minimum 8.000 and maximum 12.500 characters (may include sub-sections and references directly in the text)
* Figure: Must include one and only one graphic file (that may have several panels)

 * Legend of the figure: Maximum 1.000 characters

–The author must select the type of presentation.  Each author has the possibility to choose the preference “Poster” during the process of the submission of an abstract.  If the author does not select this preference, the Scientific Committee will determine the type of presentation.

–Finally, the author must first select the Thematic Area to which the chosen session belongs in order to submit the abstract and then mark this session.

– Once the steps that have been previously described have been finalized the author will be able to pre-view the abstract.  This document must be validated by the author in order to finalize the submission process.  The author will receive an email from the Organizing Committee acknowledging receipt of the abstract.

– As long as the online platform is open for the submission of abstracts (May 18), the author will be able to create new abstracts (there is no limit to the number of abstracts that may be submitted by the same author), edit or delete existing abstracts.
