Guidelines and Policies

Oral and Poster Presentation General Guidelines

To accommodate all partner society expectations for 2020, at the very minimum, a summary must be provided for all submissions.

Though the requirements for submission are only a summary, a minimum of two (2) pages is suggested in addition to a figure.

An outline has been created to assist you in preparing your abstract submission. Please utilize the template for instructions and heading consistency.

Oral Presentations

Oral presentations will be 20 minutes in length, followed by a short question and answer period. Upon acceptance, presentations must be prepared in a single screen electronic format (PowerPoint, 16×9).

Poster Presentations

Poster presentations will be allocated one 4’ x 8’ panels. If two (or more) panels are required, please include a comment on your submission form. Each presenter must prepare a mini oral presentation that can be delivered at a scheduled time. Poster presenters will be required to remain with their poster for the morning or afternoon of their scheduled presentation time. Posters will be on display for the full conference and scheduled presentation time(s) will be provided upon approval of abstract(s). If your poster does not fit a specific topic category, please select the category that most closely fits. Posters will be approved based on content and relevancy and do not necessarily have to fit within the pre-defined themes. Further information on the Posters can be found here.

If you select to present an oral and poster presentation, the organizing committee will work with the schedule to ensure your presentation times do not overlap. If you sign up to present both an oral and poster presentation, please note, you are agreeing to present both the oral (slides) presentation and the poster presentation.

Presentation Acceptance

Notification emails will be sent in mid-February 2020.

Commercialism Policy

The intent of GeoConvention 2020 is to provide good quality, high-level technical presentations which are free from commercial influence or bias. GeoConvention 2020 prohibits presentations that constitute promotion and/or advertising. Presentations that deal exclusively with a program, publication or product will not be accepted or tolerated by the participant or selection committee.

No Show Policy

By submitting your abstract, you are agreeing that you will be available to present during the 2020 GeoConvention, May 11-13. If you do not agree with one or more of the statements, please e-mail abstract@geoconvention.com.

  • I understand that papers should be submitted only by authors who are certain of their availability to attend the Conference and also of their ability to deliver effective presentations.
  • I understand that all presenters must register as a delegate to attend the meeting (discounted delegate presenter rate)
  • I understand that GeoConvention has implemented a No-Show policy effective for the 2020 program and will be enforced per the outline below:

Policy

If no one appears to present an accepted paper (poster or oral) that is listed in the Delegate Handbook, the presenting author will be placed on a No-Show List unless excused by the Technical Chair. Abstracts submitted to a subsequent Convention in which the presenting author is on the No-Show List will be automatically rejected. For the first offense, the presenting author will be placed on the No-Show List for two years. If there is re-occurrence, the time will double for each subsequent offence. Additionally, secondary authors will be put on a Non-Compliant List for one year and so notified. If an author remains on the Non-Compliant List for three years, the author moves to the No-Show List. Presenting authors who withdraw their paper in writing to the Technical Chairs before four weeks prior to the commencement of the Conference will be considered compliant and not be placed on the No-Show List. Presenting authors that withdraw or are a no-show after this date are placed on the No-Show List at the discretion of the Technical Program Chair.

Ownership

By submitting your abstract you allow GeoConvention to publish and promote your submission through all media formats including USB sticks and archiving. GeoConvention will not own the material and the material will remain the property of the individual submitter. Any questions can be directed to info@geoconvention.com.

Submission Deadline

The abstract submission deadline is: January 15, 2020 at 11:59 PM MST.
If your paper cannot be released before this date, please upload a placeholder and we will be in touch to follow up with final submission.
