Abstract or Summary Submission

The Northwest Territories Geological Survey organises the Technical Program of the Yellowknife Geoscience Forum. The program welcomes oral and poster presentations from academic, government, and private sector delegates. Abstracts are required for presentations on geoscience & environmental science research, and summaries are required for geoscience-related presentations. Abstracts and summaries must be submitted before the deadline and adhere to the guidelines.

Use our Abstract Submission system to enter your abstract or summary information. Abstracts should have a maximum of 500 words (excluding title and author names) and summaries should be approximately 150 words. The body of text should be single-spaced text. Do not indent paragraphs; provide a line space between paragraphs. If your submission has special characters (e.g. Greek letters, subscripts), you will have the opportunity to upload a Word Document (.doc, .docx).

The session chairs review all submitted abstracts and summaries before they are accepted. Upon submission, the abstracts and summaries are also reviewed by some Chamber of Mines and Government of the Northwest Territories staff for those organizations to be informed of current activities and the results of northern research. This is done to share conference information internally and to prepare for potential media queries. Abstracts and summaries are compiled in a conference volume which will be posted to the Technical Program web page a week before the conference.

The NWT & Nunavut Chamber of Mines organises registration for the Yellowknife Geoscience Forum. All speakers, poster presenters, and session chairs must register for the Forum.
