GUIDELINES FOR PREPARATION OF ABSTRACTS 

Abstracts should be in English and must not exceed 400 words/2700 characters including spaces. Authors are advised to prepare their abstracts using a Word or Word-compatible text editor. 

The title of the abstract and the name, email address and affiliation of the corresponding (or presenting) author(s) are to be entered into the fields when completing the submission form online. All correspondence regarding the abstract will be restricted to the corresponding author.  

Abstracts should be short, concise and include a brief introduction followed by a summary of methods, results, and conclusions. Text should be fully justified. Use Arial 10 pt font throughout. Please submit text only. References, tables, figures or any other graphics are not permitted in the abstract submission. 

1. Title of abstract.  The title of the abstract should be in bold text and lower case, except for abbreviations, the first letter of the title and the first letter of each proper noun. 

Example: U-Pb and Sm-Nd age data from San Ignacio region, eastern Bolivia: evidence for collision with SW Amazonian Craton. 

2. Author and details. Authors should be listed in order using first the given name (or initials) first followed by surname (family name). Use lower case text except for abbreviations and the first letter of each proper noun. Leave a space between words and separate each author by comma. 

For single author abstracts the author’s affiliation and email address should be given immediately after the author’s name separated by a comma. Where there are multiple authors a number in superscript should be used to designate the affiliation as shown below. For more than 10 authors we advise the use of an abbreviation of the team.
