Titles should be short (max. 16 words, longer titles will be cut off) and relevant. Extended abstracts must be in English, original and not have appeared in any other publication.
A summary of the extended abstract (max. 200 words) must be submitted as well.
The body of the extended abstract needs to be a minimal two (2) full pages and not exceed four (4) full pages in length, paper size A4. Longer or shorter sized abstracts will not be included in the review process and therefore be rejected. The extended abstract should consist of text and appropriate figures supporting the key message. The text should contain at least one figure and include references. Extended abstracts of text alone are unacceptable.
Please do not use more than 1 column for text, do not frame the text, and please upload the body of your extended abstract as one document with embedded figures.
A good extended abstract set in the Conference Template consists of an introduction, the main description of theory or method broken down as appropriate and illustrated with figures, conclusions, optional acknowledgements and references. It should reflect work that is actually completed at the time of submission and not plans or ideas that are still taking shape in the mind of the author or research that is still highly immature.
The extended abstract must concentrate in itself the essential information of the presentation: purpose, methods, results and conclusions. It should be an abbreviated, informative, accurate representation of the presentation and not a mere recital of the subjects to be covered.
- Do not modify the header, footer or font size of the template;
- Do not make a cover page for your extended abstract. EAGE will make this for you with the title, authors and summary.
- Include the presentation title only on the first page of the extended abstract (title only, no authors or affiliations!);
- Summary, authors and affiliations may not be included in the extended abstract;
- Start the body text of your extended abstract directly under the EAGE logo.
- Use font ‘Times New Roman 11pts’ with single line spacing. Set the alignment as justified and use the
standard Word outline level
- Use 2,54 cm (1”) for top, bottom, left and right margins.
The layout of the references should be consistent with the style guide for references in the First Break guidance for authors. Please ensure every citation has a reference and vice versa.
Number the figures sequentially, according to their appearance in the text, and check that each figure is cited in the text.
Supply a short caption for each figure; a more detailed discussion of the figure can be reserved for the text. Further information about the use of figure captions and figure numbering can be found in the First Break guidance for authors.
