Sample and guidelines for abstracts

Abstracts will be published in the Acta Mineralogica-Petrographica Abstract Series (Szeged).

Participants are encouraged to submit papers for oral and poster presentations related to the topics of the congress. Abstracts will be accepted by the Editorial Board based on their scientific content and reviewed for language. Standard oral and poster presentations will be of the same scientific credit. The Scientific Board will select the papers for oral presentation; however, they will take authors' preferences into consideration. Please be aware that the final decision will be made by the Scientific Board.

Abstracts should be uploaded to the conference website via the registration site of the meeting, according to the instructions given here. Please send the abstract as a DOC file.

Deadline for abstract submission: 29 February 2012

Technical requirements
The presenting author should pay the registration fee until 19 March 2012 in order to be included in the scientific programme.

An abstract fee of 10 EUR is charged for each abstract submitted for the conference.
