    • Within the context of the conference themes
      • Usefulness of contribution
      • Techniques or practice
      • Overall clarity, organization and presentation of ideas
  • Submit your short abstract in the format provided. All submissions must have a short abstract
  • You must designate that your abstract is for an oral presentation, a poster presentation, or both, so that we can build our program and if necessary prioritize depending on time.
  • If an oral presentation, indicate in your email which theme session you want the abstract to be placed in (see Call for Papers document for session descriptions).
  • The committee will make the final designation whether or not a presentation will be oral or a poster.
  • Authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection, assignment to an oral or poster
    presentation, and, their tentative session in the first half of April 2018
  • Oral presentations are twenty (20) minutes in length with five (5) minutes for questions.

    abstract. All abstracts will be available to conference attendees as a hard copy in the Program, and published in the peer-reviewed journal of the Atlantic Geoscience Society, Atlantic Geology.
  • We are volunteers and appreciate not reformatting or extensively editing abstracts. However, it is our job to make your abstract as grammatically correct and understandable as possible.
  • Final booth design will be detailed in the Poster Instructions, and sent to all confirmed poster presenters after program is confirmed.
