GeoCart'2018 Author Guidelines

Abstract Submissions

The conference Programme Committee invites authors to submit extended abstracts of up to 1500 words to the GeoCart'2018 conference.  All abstracts will be reviewed by Committee members with a professional or research background, as applicable.

If a submitted abstract is accepted, one of the following will apply, depending on the results of the review:

  • Accepted for oral presentation at the conference and included in the conference proceedings, subject to review recommendations
  • Accepted for poster presentation at the conference and included in the conference Proceedings, subject to review recommendations (some abstracts originally submitted for consideration for oral presentation may be in this category)

Abstracts of poor quality or unrelated to conference topics will be declined.

Unless noted otherwise, oral presentations will be limited to a 20-minute time slot in one of two concurrent sessions. Poster presentations will be delivered within the designated poster session where conference participants will have the opportunity to discuss topics directly with the authors. The dates and times of presentation sessions will be published in the conference schedule on the website. 

The GeoCart’2018 conference Proceedings, collating accepted abstracts, will be published both online and as a printed volume in the CartoPRESS series. 

Principal authors of accepted abstracts are eligible for a 10% discount on the conference registration fee.
