Abstract Submission

Call for Abstracts

The Local Orga­niz­ing Com­mit­tee and the West Vir­ginia Mine Drainage Task Force and the Inter­na­tion­al Mine Water Asso­ci­a­tion encour­age all Mine Water Pro­fes­sion­als to sub­mit abstracts for the WVTF | IMWA 2024 Con­fer­ence at Mor­gan­town Event Cen­ter, WV, USA from April 21–26, 2024.

Writing your abstract

Please upload your abstract (400 word max­i­mum) to the Con­gress Sec­re­tary elec­tron­i­cal­ly via our con­gress man­age­ment soft­ware “Con­fTool”. Reg­is­ter online to sub­mit your abstract and indi­cate clear­ly which Con­gress top­ic the abstract address­es.

We rec­om­mend to struc­ture your 400 words abstract as fol­lows:

Para­graph 1: Why is this abstract impor­tant?
Para­graph 2: What is nov­el in your approach; what was done?
Para­graph 3: What are your main find­ings?
Para­graph 4: What are the main appli­ca­tions and impli­ca­tions of your work?

Please ensure, that your abstract is not short­er than 300 words, as this will result in low scores. You should also make sure that some­one with very good Eng­lish reviews your abstract before you sub­mit it to us. Short abstracts, bad Eng­lish and not fol­low­ing the above struc­ture usu­al­ly results in low scores by the review­ers.
