    General remarks

  • The abstract body should be short (100–500 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 cannot be included.
  • Abstracts should be 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.
  • By submitting an abstract, authors accept the licence & copyright agreement.
  • Submission of the same abstract to more than one session is not allowed. Duplicates will be rejected.
  • The content of the abstracts is the responsibility of their authors. The conference committees reserve the right to reject abstracts that are not written in English, do not meet basic standards of scientific quality, or do not adhere to conventional standards of civil discourse and common decency.
  • The official language of the EGU Topical Conference Series is English. Simultaneous interpretation is not provided. It is therefore expected that authors are able to present their research more or less fluently in the English language.

Abstract processing charges (APCs)

  • An APC of €38 net must be paid for each abstract submission.
  • APCs can only be paid by credit card or PayPal.
  • Abstracts are only processed and available for the session organization by conveners after the payment is completed. Please note that this is a processing charge and not a publishing fee.
  • APCs are not refundable in case of an abstract withdrawal, rejection, or double submission. The charges collected cover the cost to process the abstracts whether or not one attends the meeting.
  • The APC does not register you for the 16th Plinius Conference on Mediterranean Risks. Separate registration fees apply.
  • Solicited speakers do not receive discounted APCs, registration fees, or travel reimbursement.
