Call for Abstracts
This international symposium provides a framework for scientists to share technical information on various topics related to coupled biogeochemical cycling of macro-elements and associated organic and inorganic contaminants.
If you are working in the field of biogeochemistry, you are encouraged to submit an abstract for consideration as an oral or poster presentation and share your work at the symposium.
Submissions will be grouped to form thematic sessions, so we ask that you please review the topic list beforehand to determine the best topical fit for your work, as you will be asked to select a topic when uploading your abstract file. Abstract submissions are not limited to these topical areas, as we seek to capture all emerging topics and new ideas critical to our mission.
To allow as many people as possible to give a talk, all authors are limited to giving a maximum of one oral presentation, however, you may present multiple posters if you wish.
Posters will be on display throughout the conference in the Poster & Sponsor Display Room. This is the primary gathering spot where morning, mid-day and afternoon refreshments are served. These networking functions maximize opportunities for discussion amongst poster presenters, attendees and sponsors.
Abstract Submission Fee
Abstracts must be submitted online. Please do not email them. A fee of $25.00 per abstract is charged at the time of submission and is to be paid by credit card, so have your card number handy before you begin the submission process. This fee is non-refundable. If later on you choose to withdraw your abstract, this fee is not refunded. You must register and attend the conference in order for your abstract to be published in the abstract book.
Registration Required to Participate and Present
All presenters, both oral and poster, are required to register and pay the applicable fee in order to attend and present at the conference. We anticipate the registration fee will be approximately $495 for corporate, government, academia and non-profit attendees, and $295 for students and retirees. There will be no one-day fees offered.
All presenters, oral and poster, are required to register and pay the applicable fee by February 14 to confirm participation in the program.
