How to submit an abstract

Thank you very much for your interest in the 11th European Conference on Severe Storms. Please follow the guidelines for the submission of your abstract (deadline is 12 January 2023). Please note that for the 11th European Conference on Severe Storms an abstract submission fee (ASF) of €32 per abstract is charged.

General remarks

  • Abstracts should motivate only briefly the work to be presented but provide factual information on the description of methods used and the anticipated types of results.
  • Authors may decide to submit their abstract with a preference either for a poster presentation or for an oral presentation. However, there is no guarantee that an oral preference can be realized.
  • Please be aware that there will be no possibility to present virtually.
  • Abstracts should be between 200 and 400 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 an image.
  • We recommend that the abstract be carefully compiled and thoroughly checked before submission, in particular with regard to the list of authors, before submission in order to avoid last minute changes.
  • The submission of an abstract carries with it the obligation that it is actually presented at the meeting by the author or, at least, by one of the co-authors.

Technical guidelines

  • Use a text editor of your choice to compile your abstract: title, author(s), affiliation(s) of author(s), and the abstract text.
  • Browse through the session programme and select the session of your interest.
  • Use the "Abstract submission" link for the selected session.
  • You will be asked to log in to the Copernicus Office Meeting Organizer. Use your account data or create a new account.
  • Fill in the submittal information about title, author(s), and affiliation(s) of author(s).
  • For your abstract body, the submission form provides an HTML editor.
  • Accept the licence & copyright agreement and proceed to the abstract preview.
  • If the conversion of your abstract fails, please specify your problems and we will take care of them.
  • In any case, please indicate your invoice details for the abstract submission fee (see below).
  • Submit your abstract. A confirmation message including your abstract number will be displayed and you will receive a confirmation email providing your abstract number. Should you not receive the abstract submission confirmation email within 24 hours, please check your spam folder first and then contact us at: meetings@copernicus.org.

Abstract submission fees (ASF)

  • An abstract submission fee (ASF) of €32 gross must be paid for each abstract submission.
  • ASFs 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 the organizers after the payment is completed. Please note that this is a submission fee and not a publishing fee.
  • ASFs are not refundable in case of an abstract withdrawal, rejection, or double submission. The fees collected cover the cost to process the abstracts whether or not one attends the meeting.
  • The ASF does not register you for the 11th European Conference on Severe Storms. Separate registration fees apply.
