Abstract guidelines and rules

Abstract text

  • The abstract body should be short (50–250 words), clear, concise, and written in English with correct spelling and good sentence structure.
  • Mathematical symbols and equations must be typed in, and metric symbols should be used.
  • Figures and tables cannot be included.
  • Abstracts can be compiled as plain text, LaTeX, or Word.
  • LaTeX submissions should only include general LaTeX commands directly in the text (e.g. formatting commands like superscripts and subscripts, and special characters). Style packages and environment commands cannot be considered and must not be included.
  • Word abstracts are required to use the Word template that can be downloaded from the abstract submission form.
  • Abstracts should be carefully compiled and thoroughly checked, in particular with regard to the list of authors, before submission in order to avoid last-minute changes.


  • The submission of an abstract carries with it the obligation that it is actually presented at the meeting by the author or, at least, by one of the co-authors.
  • By submitting an abstract, authors accept the licence & copyright agreement and the rules of conduct.
  • The content of EGU Galileo conference abstracts is the responsibility of their authors. The programme committee reserves the right to reject abstracts that are not written in English, are out of the scope of the conference, do not meet basic standards of scientific quality, or do not adhere to conventional standards of civil discourse and common decency.
  • The official language of the EGU Galileo Conference is English. Simultaneous interpretation is not provided. It is therefore expected that authors are able to present their research more or less fluently in the English language.

Abstract processing charges (APCs)

  • An APC of €30 gross must be paid for each abstract submission.
  • APCs can only be paid by credit card.
  • Abstracts are only processed and available for the session organization after the payment is completed. Please note that this is a processing charge and not a publishing fee.
  • APCs are not refundable in case of an abstract withdrawal, rejection, or double submission. The charges collected cover the cost to process the abstracts, whether or not one attends the meeting.
  • The APC does not register you for this EGU Galileo Conference. Separate registration fees apply.
