Abstracts in English or French must be submitted through the Call for Abstracts page of the GeoNiagara 2021 conference web site. Authors will be asked to indicate the technical theme under which they wish their paper to be presented.
In order to ensure all abstracts meet the conference's presentation requirements, a template has been prepared. All authors must use the template and follow the guidelines to help ensure presentation uniformity in the conference's online technical program calendar and proceedings – submissions that do not follow the guidelines will be returned. Please take particular note of the abstract word count.
The extended deadline for submission of abstracts is January 31, 2021. Invitations for the submission of full papers will be sent by February 28, 2021 to authors whose abstracts are accepted by the conference's Technical Committee.
Guidelines for the preparation and submission of technical papers will be posted in early 2021. Authors of accepted abstracts must submit their full papers by May 15, 2021, along with at least one full conference registration. Authors are expected to present their paper during the conference.
The GeoNiagara 2021 Technical Committee will review all papers for clarity, technical merit, and relevance to the conference. Our goal is to inform each corresponding author of their paper's acceptance by June 15, 2021. In cases where the reviewer feels revisions are necessary, comments will be provided, with revised papers being due by July 1, 2021.
Authors whose abstracts are submitted/accepted in the Hydrogeological Themes are not obligated to submit a full technical paper. However, a formatted abstract is required to be submitted at the paper stage, so the Technical Committee can make a final decision on participation in the oral or poster presentation program. Extended Abstracts are required for students applying for the Toth Award.
Final decisions regarding the technical merit, relevance, and assigned session topic for accepted papers are the responsibility of the Technical Committee. Questions regarding the paper review process, sessions, and the technical program should be directed to the GeoNiagara 2021 Technical Committee Leads:
