How to submit an Abstract?

Thank you very much for your interest in the GSGCBS – Global Spatial Grids and Cloud-based Services Workshop. The following steps should give you a guideline for the submission of your Abstract (deadline is 10 July 2013). You are kindly asked to prepare your abstract as PDF file locally on your own computer, using the templates supplied below, and then to submit the PDF you have generated. The two-page abstracts will be peer-reviewed and the full papers will be published in the ISPRS Archives.

  • Use the link "Abstract Submission".
  • You are asked to login to the Copernicus Office Meeting Organizer. Use your account data or create a new account.
  • Select the topic of your interest.
  • Fill in the submittal information about Title, Author(s), and Affiliation(s) of author(s).
  • Use the template for WORD (doc) or LaTeX (tex) to generate your abstract as a PDF file.
  • Upload your prepared abstract PDF file.
  • The online system then embeds your abstract PDF file in an umbrella template including the automatic generation of the actual header. The outcome is a complete abstract PDF file.
  • If the conversion of your abstract fails please specify your problems, we will then take care.
  • Submit your abstract.

In case any questions arise, please contact us at
