Abstracts & Presentations


Abstract submissions for the Scientific and Technical Program closed on 7 July.

Oral presentations

The current plan is to run 10 concurrent technical sessions (nominally two at the time per Theme) for three days (Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday). This equates to 560 speaking slots, or nominally 56 per Theme.

Oral presentations will be 15 minutes. Theme Conveners will have the flexibility to assign longer timeslots for Session Keynote Speakers.

If you wish to deliver a workshop or suggest a topic for a session or a Symposium, please contact any member of the Organising Committee or Carillon through the website.

Poster presentations

Poster papers will be accorded a prominent place at the Convention and posters will be located in high traffic areas adjacent to the GeoEXPO and catering points.

Posters must be designed in portrait orientation and in A0 size (1189mm height x 841mm width)

Submission of abstracts

Abstracts submissions were open from 14 October 2017. All abstract submissions were to be received by the cut-off date of 7 July 2018 (extended from 16 June).

Please note that individuals will only be permitted to deliver one oral presentation (unless they are a plenary or invited keynote speaker) but they may co-author multiple oral presentations and may give multiple poster presentations.


AGCC 2018 will publish standard abstracts electronically at the time of the event, but will not publish papers presented. Symposium convenors and groups wishing to publish papers presented at the Convention are free to enter independently into agreements with publishing houses.
