Invitation to Submit

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we invite you to submit an abstract for presentation at the SEG 2017 Conference, Ore Deposits of Asia: China and Beyond, September 17–20, in Beijing, China. The conference is jointly hosted by the Society of Economic Geologists (SEG) and the China University of Geosciences, Beijing (CUGB).

The focus of the conference will be on recent developments in our understanding of the evolution of eastern Asia and the formation of its many world-class mineral deposits. Themes are listed below. All submissions related to economic geology will be considered, however, with those not related to ore deposits in Asia as possible additions to the poster presentation category.

The conference will feature Invited Keynote Speakers, Invited Speakers, and theme-based sessions drawn from submitted abstracts on a variety of deposit styles and environments. The three days of technical talks will be supplemented by related poster sessions, with dedicated time in the technical program.

We look forward to receiving your abstract and meeting with you in Beijing in September 2017.

Abstract Submissions

All abstracts will be reviewed by the Technical Committee, with decisions based on relevance and content. Contributors are limited to presenting two abstracts per person for the program (one for oral sessions and one for posters). Abstracts may be submitted by other contributors on the research/investigation/work team (that is, contributors other than the presenting researcher). If accepted, your abstract will be published online as part of the SEG 2017 Conference Proceedings, which will be provided to conference attendees and may also be made available for subsequent sale by SEG. Notice of preliminary acceptance will be sent by May 15, 2017. Final abstract acceptance will not occur until the presenting author registers for the conference.

At the time of submission, presenters are asked to agree to copyright release and to acknowledge that they understand that, if the abstract is accepted, the presenting author must register for the conference.

Policies on Abstract Submission and Acceptance

Submission of an abstract acknowledges the author's consent to the following:

  • If accepted, your abstract will be published in the SEG 2017 Conference Proceedings that will be provided to conference attendees and may also be made available for subsequent sale by SEG.
  • If accepted, the presenting author must register by the early registration deadline of July 31, 2017.
  • Final abstract acceptance will not occur until the presenting author registers for the conference and that registration cannot be cancelled or refunded.

Policy Statement

This policy is intended to support the broadest number of contributors to participate in the conference program. Any contributor who is submitting an abstract must be a member of the research/investigation/work team. Contributors are limited to presenting two abstracts per person for the program (one for oral sessions and one for posters). Abstracts may be submitted by other contributors on the research/investigation/work team (that is, other than the presenting researcher).

There is no limit to the number of times that a researcher's name may appear as a member of a team of investigators on abstracts submitted to the conference. In cases where a researcher is involved in more than two abstracts or studies submitted for the conference program, that researcher may be listed as the presenter only twice (one for an oral session and one for a poster).

Exceptions to this policy may be considered on a case-by-case basis where in the opinion of the conference Technical Committee, such an exception may enhance the conference program and/or knowledge exchange. All decisions of the conference Technical Committee are final.
