How to submit an Abstract?

Thank you very much for your interest in the EGU General Assembly 2010! Please follow the guidelines for the submission of your abstract:

  • 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 link "Abstract Submission" at the respective session;
  • You are asked to login 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);
  • Choose between Plain Text, LaTeX or WORD content with regard to the Abstract Text;
  • Copy-and-Paste your information into the form or download and use the WORD template;
  • Submit and check the generated PDF file of your edited and formatted abstract;
  • If the conversion of your abstract fails please specify your problems, we will then take care!

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.

First Author Rule: Regarding the oral preference, you are allowed as first author to submit either ONE regular abstract plus ONE abstract solicited by a convener, or TWO solicited abstracts. Each further abstract has to be submitted with a poster preference. If you submit to a session belonging to the programme group EOS, you are allowed as first author to submit ONE more abstract with an oral preference (THREE in total).

In case any questions arise, please contact us!

General Remarks

  • Abstracts should be short (400–600 words), clear, concise and written in English with correct spelling and good sentence structure.
  • Mathematical symbols and equations must be typed in, and metric symbols should be used. Figures and tables should not be included!
  • We recommend that the abstract is carefully compiled and thoroughly checked, 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!
  • There is no limitation in the number of abstract submissions per author and no abstract fees will be levied.
