Call for Abstracts
The NSS Section of Cave Geology and Geography is accepting abstracts for presentations at the Geology and Geography Session of the 2018 NSS Convention, to be held July 28 – August 3, 2018 in Helena, Montana. Each year, the Geology and Geography Section of the NSS hosts talks featuring the latest research in geology, hyrdology, speleogenesis, and many other topics related to caves and karst. All abstracts will be considered to be for oral presentations unless a poster presentation is specifically requested. At this time, we have not reserved poster space, but could accommodate a poster session if there is sufficient interest and enough advance notice is given to convention organizers. As we did last year, we also encourage interested researchers to bring posters from other conferences such as GSA, AGU, and ICS that may be of interest to attendees at convention. This provides an additional opportunity to share your work with your colleagues.
Abstracts may be no more than 250 words in length (this limit must be strictly met). In addition to the text, the abstracts should contain the title of the paper, and the name(s), address(es), and email address(es) of the author(s). The abstracts should be informative summaries that include the conclusions, and not lists of topics that "...will be discussed." Bibliographies and references should not be given in the abstracts. Papers may be submitted for either oral presentation as a poster. Please specify your preference when submitting your abstract.
The deadline for abstracts is May 15, 2018. Early submissions are encouraged. Confirmation notes will be sent to everyone sending an abstract. Details on presentations times, dates, and other information will be sent to all confirmed participants after the deadline. For online details about the convention, visit: http://nss2018.caves.org/. The talks are generally twenty minutes long and include time for questions.
Thank you very much,
