Abstract submission guidelines

We warmly welcome abstract submissions from both practitioners and academics – the process is the same for both options.

We invite submissions of abstracts for both full sessions and presentations for the 2019 European Climate Change Adaptation conference. All session and abstract submissions should link to one of the conference themes.

Submissions now closed

Two presentation formats will be available:

Oral and poster – guidelines

Two types of sessions will be organised:

Science and Science-practice – guidelines

  • Science sessions (presenting advances in scientific methods, tools and findings relevant to climate adaptation and/or disaster risk reduction);
  • Science-practice sessions (to enhance engagement and learning between science and practice including relevant connections with policy and society).

We welcome abstracts from researchers, practitioners, policy-makers, decision-makers, managers and technicians from academia, public and private sectors.

Full sessions and abstracts can only be submitted online and in English. An abstract may only be submitted once. Abstracts submitted as an oral presentation may be changed to a poster presentation by the Conference Organisation in order to be accepted and included in the programme.

There is a limit of two presentations (oral and/or poster) for a single registered presenting author. However, this does not exclude the opportunity to be a co-author in an unlimited number of abstracts.

How to submit a full session or individual abstract

Access the online Submission platform and follow the instructions. For your convenience please find the full session and presentation abstract submission guidelines here.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Once the submission process is completed you will be provided (by email) with an individual key and abstract code, which you should keep for your records.

Additionally, you will receive a confirmation email of the abstract submission. If you need to withdraw or change information in your submission, please contact programme@ecca2019.eu and refer your abstract code.

For additional submissions you must use the same process and the system will generate an additional/new abstract key and code, which will be included in your personal area.
