Extended abstracts should be submitted before 01 October 2011Selection process
The Scientific Committee will consider all extended abstracts submitted to the EAGE Head Office by 01 October 2011 and authors will be notified by 10 December 2011. By that time the technical programme selection meeting has taken place and the technical programme with definite session titles and presentation allocation is composed.
Each extended abstract will be reviewed by at least 2 referees prior to the technical programme selection meeting. The selection process is no formality, on average 1 out of every 4 submitted extended abstracts is rejected!
The extended abstracts must be relevant to one of the conference topics. Authors are requested to indicate the topic under which their extended abstract should be evaluated by the referees. Authors should also indicate their preference for either an oral or a poster presentation; certain material is more suitable for poster presentations, due to the details that need to be studied and discussed in more depth.
Oral and poster presentations are treated equally.
Titles should be in English, short (max. 120 characters) and relevant. A summary of the extended abstract (max. 200 words) must be submitted as well. Extended abstracts should be in either English or Russian, original and not have appeared in any other publication.
A good extended abstract consists of an introduction, the main description of theory or method broken down as appropriate and illustrated with figures, conclusions, optional acknowledgements and references. It should reflect work that is actually completed at the time of submission and not plans or ideas that are still taking shape in the mind of the author or research that is still highly immature.
The extended abstract must concentrate in itself the essential information of the presentation: purpose, methods, results and conclusions. It should be an abbreviated, informative, accurate representation of the presentation and not a mere recital of the subjects to be covered.
The accepted extended abstract is published on the CD-ROM and EarthDoc, which are official EAGE publications, as submitted. Badly written extended abstracts not only reflect poorly on the authors, but also on the association. Many more people read the accepted extended abstracts than those attending the presentation. Therefore EAGE will only consider properly written and informative extended abstracts that are submitted in line with the template instructions.
Copyright will remain with EAGE unless a release from this condition is obtained at the time of submission. Copyright will return to the author 6 months after presentation, if by that time he or she has not been informed that the EAGE intends to extend the copyright.
Authors are encouraged to submit their material for publication in one of the journals of the association. Acceptance for the conference does not guarantee acceptance for publication in one of the journals.
