Session Proposal and Abstract Submission Deadlines has passed.

Monitoring Abstracts

Abstract Submissions are open from 15 June – 3 August 2016. You may invite up to two authors to submit to your session as invited authors from 15 June – 20 July 2016, though invited authors can still accept and submit up to the 3 August deadline.

During the abstract submission process, session conveners are expected to monitor the abstracts submitted to their session via the online system, using your AGU member email and password. Once you log in, select the session title and then “View Submission” from the left hand side control panel.

Session conveners should be looking for the following:

  • Abstracts that clearly do not belong in your session. Please notify abstracts@agu.org by 3 August and we will contact the author with the concern and move the abstract to a more appropriate session. This may be due to author oversight or a misunderstanding of the session’s intent.
    • Remember that an abstract cannot be transferred after the program is finalized, so each author is counting on you as a convener to make sure that all abstracts submitted and accepted to your session are appropriate to the topic.
  • Invited authors who have not accepted the invitation or have not submitted their abstract. Please follow up to ensure invited authors have received the invitation and intend to submit the abstract. Late submissions will not be accepted. If the author has declined the invitation, you can  invite another author in their place. You can do this up until 20 July.
  • Other sessions with which your session can be merged based on abstract submissions. Please notify your program committee representative if you have any suggestions on merges.

Please contact abstracts@agu.org or your program committee representative if you have any concerns while monitoring your session during the abstract submission period.
