Paper Submission Guidelines for Authors

MS Word Technical Paper Template

The GeoManitoba 2012 abstract submission phase is now complete and corresonding authors will be advised of their submission’s acceptance by e-mail. Over 300 abstracts were received and most have been selected to move on to the technical paper submission phase. The titles and corresponding authors of accepted abstracts will be posted at

Complete technical papers must be submitted by May 18, 2012 using the online submission feature of this website available at Corresponding authors will be required to register as a delegate for the conference before they can submit their paper(s) – the online delegate registration and payment system will be functional in early March, 2012.

The Author's Release, Declaration and Understanding has been incorporated into the online submission process – all corresponding authors must select “Yes” in the Copyright Permission field or the paper will not be uploaded to the site.

The GeoManitoba 2012 Technical Committee will review all papers for clarity, technical merit and relevance to the conference. Our goal is to inform corresponding authors of their paper’s acceptance by June 15, 2012 and possibly before. In cases where the reviewing team feels revisions are necessary, comments will be provided with revised papers being due by June 29, 2012.

All accepted papers, for which at least one author has registered for the conference, will appear in the published proceedings of the conference – each registrant will receive a digital version as part of their delegate registration.

To help authors ensure their paper meets the conference’s presentation requirements, we have prepared Paper Submission Guidelines for Authors. All authors must follow these guidelines to help ensure presentation uniformity in conference proceedings. Please take particular note of the page and abstract word count limits. An MS Word Technical Paper Template file has been developed for the use of all authors – submissions that do not follow the prescribed formatting guidelines will be returned.

Final decisions regarding the assigned session for submitted papers will rest with the Technical Committee. Questions regarding the paper review process, sessions and the technical program should be directed to the GeoManitoba 2012 Technical Chair:
