Abstract submission

Please submit your abstracts at


Please note that there will be additional session topics to those listed on the abstract submission form. During submission of your abstract, if it does not fit one of the suggested topics, please click "Other".


Abstracts up to a maximum length of 300 words must be in English and include text only (no pictures, tables or graphics). The abstracts will be reproduced in electronic format (CD-ROM or USB memory stick) and will be supplied on registration at the conference.

Abstracts will be reviewed. Authors will be required to address comments and recommended changes by reviewers and resubmit the final version of their abstract by 31 July 2013. Presenting authors will be notified of acceptance of their abstract by 15 August 2013.

A limit of two abstracts for oral presentation per presenting author will be applied. This rule may be waived if the author can justify exceptional technical merit of an additional abstract and provided there is room in the programme for the presentation.

NZ Geothermal Workshop papers

The New Zealand Geothermal Workshop (NZGW) normally produces a proceedings volume containing full papers. This facility will also be available in 2013 for papers associated with NZGW session presentations. The collection of NZGW abstracts will be the same as for IAGS. However, the collection of NZGW papers will be separate, because a full review process is required. Details on how to submit your NZGW paper will be available later. 31 July is the deadline for receipt of full papers for NZGW.

Presenter’s biography

On receipt of acceptance of an abstract for oral presentation, the presenter must supply a short biography that can be used by the session chairperson to introduce the speaker. This biography should be no more than 50 words long.

Special Issue Submission

The journal Geochemistry: Exploration, Environment, Analysis (GEEA), produced jointly by the Association of Applied Geochemists and the Geological Society of London, will consider publishing a special Issue for the 26th IAGS after the conference.

The GEEA website at http://geea.geoscienceworld.org/ provides full instruction for the preparation of manuscript and the submission under title: Information for Authors. Manuscripts should be submitted to the Journal via online system http://geea.allentrack.net by 31 January 2014.
