Abstract and full paper submission needs to be done electronically through ConfTool, our online Congress organizing software. Before submitting your full paper, you first need to register into the online tool.
Like all IMWA publications, all full papers will undergo a peer review process.
Our members of the International Scientific Committee will categorize all abstracts into one of the two presentation types Oral or Poster. Both presentation types will appear in the proceedings volume of IMWA 2021. Because we are expecting a large number of papers, we had to restrict the page number for your paper to 6 pages (“strict”). Please be advised that the 6 pages are DIN A4 format, including figures, tables and references. Yet, the Session Chairs will select the best papers of their session and suggest them to be published in our journal “Mine Water and the Environment” after the Congress.
Full papers are mandatory for oral oresentations. If your abstract has been accepted as poster presentation it is up to you whether or not you wish to prepare a paper. But please be advised that only papers will be published in the proceedings. Therefore we highly encourage any type of presentation to prepare a full paper.
You can find the full paper template here:
If you already started to write your paper for the proceedings volume, make sure your paper is not longer than 6 pages. You may also follow the instructions for authors of “Mine Water and the Environment”, which you can find here, or the “Tips & Tricks” for writing essays here.
