Eurokarst-2016 - submission deadline postponed

Author Speleogenesis News Manager. Posted on 24 Sep, 2015

The deadline for submitting abstracts (French or English) to the Eurokarst conference is slightly postponed to the 15th of October. Don't miss it!

Submit to : http://www.eurokarst.org/submit/

We remind you that, at this stage of the procedure, the abstract can be very short and presenting essentially an idea.

The abstracts will be used to evaluate how many persons will join the conference and would like to publish a full paper. We will start estimating the number of oral and poster presentations and designing the conference on this base.

An extended abstract or full publication (depending on what you would like to present) will be requested later, by March 1st 2016, and the decisions of the committee will be based on those final versions. Be aware, that the second deadline will be open only to those who have submitted a preliminary abstract in October!

Best regards and we look very much forward welcoming all of you in Neuchâtel next year!

Sincerely,
Philippe, Catherine and Sabine
