Guidelines for submitting an abstract
The abstract submittal site is now closed.
The deadline for submittals was Tuesday, 27 September 2011. Other items to keep in mind:
- Authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection in November 2011.
- Authors of accepted abstracts will have the option to submit an extended version of their abstract which will then be reproduced on CD-ROM and made available at the convention. Authors are invited to have their work, both oral and poster presentations, published on AAPG's online Search and Discovery to preserve their work for future reference.
- Permission for AAPG to publish your abstract is implied when you submit your paper for consideration to the 2012 Annual Convention & Exhibition.
Important: AAPG has no funding for speakers. Do not submit an abstract unless at least one author is certain to attend the convention. All session chairs, speakers and poster presenters must register to attend the convention. No exceptions will be made.
Single screen electronic presentations will be the only format available. Each session room is equipped with the following:
- High intensity projector
- Desktop computer
- Large format screen
- Speaker timer
- Laser pointer
- Lapel microphone
- Lectern microphone
35mm slide projectors, overhead projectors and/or movie projectors, Internet connections and dual screens will not be available. Detailed speaker information will be sent to you upon acceptance of your abstract.
Half-day poster sessions are planned for Long Beach. Presenters are required to be in their booths a minimum of two hours while their posters are on display.
The AAPG Executive Committee has ruled that presenters who fail to show up for their scheduled presentations without previously notifying AAPG Headquarters of their cancellation will not be allowed to present papers or posters at any AAPG-sponsored technical meeting for three years following the “no-show.”
