The guidelines for abstract submission are found on this page.


Deadline: 05 January 2018.

NAC 2018 will be programmed around a number of broadly defined geoscientific keywords which serves as the main entrance for submission of abstracts. Depending on the number abstracts and the issues presented the programme committee will arrange the abstracts in specific sessions. Sessions will be focussed on specific issues relevant to the main keywords (e.g. feedback mechanisms in climate change, coastal geology, geothermal energy, etcetera)  or can group contributions which have a methodological similarity (e.g. dating techniques, scientific drilling). Subsequently, the programme committee decides if an abstract will be accepted as oral or poster presentation.

The oral presentations (15 minutes including discussion/questions) will take place in parallel sessions spread over the two days of the congress. Each day there will be ample time for poster presentations. Scheduling the sessions will take place in the first half of February 2016. Directly afterwards applicants will be informed if their contribution is approved as oral or poster presentation.

As NAC 2018 will be an interdisciplenary meeting place for geoscientists, this procedure is aimed to encourage researchers from all fields in Earth Sciences to present their progress of research.
