Student abstracts should be submitted before 15 October 2011. The call for papers is now closed.
The Student Advisory Committee will consider all abstracts submitted to EAGE by the deadline 15 October 2011 and authors will be notified by the beginning of December 2011.
Each student abstract will be reviewed by referees from the Student Advisory Committee selection meeting.
The student abstracts must be relevant to one of the Student Topics. Authors are requested to indicate the topic under which their student abstract should be evaluated by the referees.
Titles should be short (max. 60 characters) and relevant. A summary of the student abstract (max. 100 words) must be submitted as well. Student abstracts must be in English, original and not have appeared in any other publication.
A good student 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 student 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 student abstract is published on the CD-ROM and EarthDoc, which are official EAGE publications, as submitted. Badly written student abstracts not only reflect poorly on the authors, but also on the association. Many more people read the accepted student abstracts than those attending the presentation. Therefore EAGE will only consider properly written and informative student 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.
EAGE cannot make any contributions toward coverage of expenses relating to the presentation.
