CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

MARK THESE DATES!

1 December 2022

Abstract submission opening

28 February 2023

Abstract Submission deadline

15 May 2023

Notification of acceptance or rejection for abstracts

The abstract submission is only possible on-line. Abstracts submitted by other means or not compliant with the instructions will not be accepted.

Please carefully follow the instructions before submitting the abstract. The abstract will be online for review by the author until the submission deadline.

All submitted abstracts will be reviewed by the scientific committee after the submission deadline. Acceptance will be notified to the presenting author within 15 May 2023.

REGISTRATION TO THE CONGRESS OF THE PRESENTING AUTHOR IS MANDATORY BEFORE 30 AUGUST 2023.

IN CASE WE WILL NOT RECEIVE YOUR REGISTRATION WITHIN THIS DATE, YOUR ABSTRACT WILL BE WITHDRAWN.

ABSTRACT PREPARATION

  • The following subdivision of abstract is RECOMMENDED: Purpose, Methods, Results, Conclusions. Please download and use the template available on the submission page.
  • The abstract must be written in English.
  • Tables, graphics and references can be added if needed.
  • Abstract length is limited to 500 words (tables, graphics and references included).
  • Abbreviations are not allowed in the title. if abbreviations are in the text, please write the full description when first used.
  • For each submission, the preferred session should be selected as well as a second option, which will be considered in case the first session is cancelled, or if the submission will be evaluated not suitable for that session.
  • When submitting their abstract, authors will be requested to indicate their preferred presentation type. Due to the final number of time slots allocated to each session, the submission of an abstract as an oral presentation does not actually guarantee that the presentation will be selected as such: in case a session receives a number of oral preferences higher than the available oral slots, the conveners will change some presentations to the e-poster typology.
  • An individual may be the presenting author of only one poster and only one oral. He is permitted to be a co-author of an unlimited number of abstracts. Presenting authors are expected to attend the congress and present their contribution. Authors who are unable to attend and give the presentation as scheduled, must notify the Organizing Secretariat and withdraw their abstract at session@wlf6.org.
  • All speakers that are PhD students at the moment of abstract submission are eligible to take part in the “WLF6 PhD Award”, in which the best oral presentations held by a PhD student will be awarded with a parchment.
  • Selected abstracts by the theme coordinators and session conveners could be published at special fees on Landslides journal or ICL open access book series “Progress in Landslide Research and Technology”.
