Sponsorship and trade booths are available. Sponsors are given a choice of sponsored events on a first come first served basis on receipt of monies. Sponsorship provides the company or organisation with its logo prominent on advertising, promotional materials, the symposium (digital) volume and during the sponsored event.
AIG Sponsorship for Young Presenters
The AIG has generously agreed to sponsor to NZ$500 (incl. GST) the registration of the first ten young geologists giving a talk and/or poster. The young geologist must by less than 30 years of age on 21 February 2017, and may be from any country globally. They may be a student, employed or unemployed. They should be a member of the AIG or provide a completed AIG membership application (students free).
Applicants should send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with their symposium volume-compliant extended abstract and a specific request for this young presenter allocation.
There is no deadline but the first ten compliant applications received will be awarded. Applicants should be the senior or only author, and they will give either a symposium talk or poster including a 5 minute oral “poster” talk.
Call for Papers and Posters
If you wish to submit a paper or poster, please send the name of the senior author, a working title and a paragraph explaining what the paper/poster is about (no need to be scientific or specific) to email@example.com as soon as possible. There is no limit to the number of posters a person may submit.
Instructions to Speakers
All talks and oral sessions will have a computer projector running PowerPoint. There will be no other projection facilities. Your talk should fairly acknowledge the work of others and supporting organisations. At the same time we discourage (the recent trend towards) the excessive use of partner naming, company or product promotion and colleague referencing.
• Gold17@Rotorua will include a significant poster component and poster sessions. We especially encourage students and junior company staff to present a poster. There is no limit to the number of posters nor specified submission date but extended abstracts are required before 1 December 2016.
• All posters will be accompanied by a five-minute oral presentation by the senior author.
• If possible include a small photo of the author on the poster display.
• Posters are for the display of scientific results and should not be used for the promotion of businesses, research groups, government departments, companies or products, that is the role of a Trade Exhibit.
• Please contact the organisers to submit a poster. Please submit a title and author name(s) as soon as possible. All posters/speakers (except keynote) are required to register and pay to attend meetings.
• Poster boards are 1800cm x 1200cm.
Please Note: All posters/speakers are required to register and pay to attend this meeting.
Extended Abstracts Volume
Abstracts are required from all presenters, both poster and oral auditorium.
• Abstracts will be reviewed by the organizing committee for Transparency, Quality Content and Competence before final acceptance of the paper.
• For all abstracts, please supply a short paragraph on the qualifications, employment and competence of the senior author and presenter. This description paragraph will be printed with the abstract.
• All abstracts should be submitted as soon as possible and definitely before the deadline 1st December 2017 to firstname.lastname@example.org Submit abstracts and figures with the surname of the presenter as the first word in the file name. Submit your abstract in Microsoft Word. Please submit figures as a JPEG or TIFF separately (not embedded in Word). Tables should be of realistic size, upright and in Word.
• The AIG will produce a digital pdf Abstract Volume. The Volume will be available as a digital file on the AIG website in advance of the event. The volume will also be available on a thumb drive at themeeting. The AIG will not be printing the volume.
• Abstracts should be between 250 and 2,500 words. Ideally, all abstracts include a figure, typically a map or summary diagram. Please ensure that your abstract correctly and fairly references the work of others.
• Abstracts will be desktop published by the AIG - you do not need to format your text for publication. For the style of publication and past abstracts please view any of AIG Bulletins 54 to 57 compiled by Julian Vearncombe and published by the AIG for free register at www.aig.org.au and www.geosymposia. com.au
• Abstracts and talk should comprise either (or both of) novel science and/or a balanced wide-ranging review of new technologies and future developments. In both abstract and talk, we discourage the excessive use of partner naming and colleague referencing.
• The presenter will take full responsibility for all abstract and talk content.
