Abstract guidelines and rules

Abstract text

  • The abstract body should be short (100–500 words), clear, concise, and written in English with correct spelling and good sentence structure.
  • Mathematical symbols and equations can be typed in or embedded as image.
  • Figures and tables should not be included.
  • Abstracts should be carefully compiled and thoroughly checked, in particular with regard to the list of authors, before submission in order to avoid last-minute changes. However, abstracts can be updated until the submission deadline.

Responsibilities

  • The submission of an abstract carries with it the obligation that it is actually presented at the conference by the author or, at least, by one of the co-authors. If this is not possible, please withdraw your abstract as early as possible.
  • By submitting an abstract, authors accept the licence & copyright agreement and the rules of conduct.
  • Submission of the same abstract to more than one session is not allowed. Duplicates identified by the organizing committee will be rejected.
  • The content of conference abstracts is the responsibility of their authors. The organizing committee reserves the right to reject abstracts that are not written in English, are out of the scope of the conference, do not meet basic standards of scientific quality, or do not adhere to conventional standards of civil discourse and common decency.
  • The official language of the conference is English. Simultaneous interpretation is not provided. It is therefore expected that authors are able to present their research more or less fluently in the English language.

Abstract processing charges (APCs)

  • An APC of €20 gross must be paid for each abstract submission. In exceptional cases, late abstracts can be uploaded by conveners after 14 March 2022 but by the strict deadline of 25 March 2022, 13:00 CET).
  • APCs can only be paid by credit card or PayPal. You will be asked to provide your invoice details since a proper invoice and payment receipt will be sent by email. Please note that most probably, this invoice is meant to be an institutional invoice addressed to your institute rather than to you personally. The submission form therefore has institutional invoice as default but this could be changed to personal invoice, if applicable. If your institution is based in an EU country, you are requested to provide a VAT identification number. This VAT ID can normally be found in the imprint of your institution's website. Please carefully check your provided invoice address to avoid later changes.
  • Abstracts are only processed and available for session organization by conveners after the payment is completed. Please note that this is a processing charge and not a publishing fee.
  • APCs are not refundable in case of an abstract withdrawal, rejection, double submission, or conference cancellation. The charges collected cover the cost to process the abstracts, whether or not one attends the meeting, or the conference is cancelled.
  • The APC does not register you for the 10th International Conference of the International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG). Separate registration fees apply.

Only in exceptional cases abstracts can be sent to conveners after 14 March 2022 for submission on your behalf need to reach conveners well in advance of their strict upload deadline of 25 March 2022, 13:00 CET. It is important to send the following information to the conveners:
