Abstract guidelines

Presentation types

We offer two types of presentations:
  • Oral: Oral presentations slots are 15 minutes. Presenters are free to manage their time, but the presentation time should be kept to 10 and 12 minutes allowing a minimum of 3 minutes for discussion.
  • Poster: Posters are expected to be on display during entire meeting period. Poster sessions are held at the end of the day in the Amphitheater. Besides, a specific Friday afternoon is dedicated to the poster session that will happen in the “Grande Galerie de Géologie » in which the Microbialite collection will be exhibited.
Authors are allowed to submit only one abstract as first author, although there is no limit to the number of abstracts a person may co-author.
The number of oral presentation is limited, but all accepted abstracts will be offered at least the opportunity to be presented as a poster. Priority will be given to Students and Early Career Scientists for talks.
