Invitation to Submit

On behalf of the Program Committee, we invite you to submit an abstract for presentation at the 4th International Symposium on the Ocean in a High-CO2 World.

This Symposium is a gathering of the world’s leading experts in a rapidly developing frontier of research dealing with the science of ocean acidification.

This is the first time the Symposium will be held in the Southern Hemisphere and will highlight the importance of ocean acidification for the region. The symposia typically attract over 500 participants and are prime networking events, bringing together researchers, students, and government and industry representatives.

Presenters Registration

All presenters will be required to register for the conference and pay the appropriate registration fee. Presenters also need to meet their own travel and accommodation costs.

Presentation Formats

While you will be asked to indicate your preferred presentation format, the program committee may request an alternative format be considered. The committee will allocate presentations to the program taking into account the preference of authors and the balance of the program.

We anticipate that authors will be the principal presenter for at most one featured presentation, but may be the principal presenter for more than one impact presentation and display poster.

Featured Oral Presentation

It is anticipated featured oral presentations will be allocated XX minutes for presentation, including 2 minutes for question time.

Impact Presentation

Impact presentations will be given a 3-minute presentation showing a maximum of 2 PowerPoint slides (one of which will be a title slide).

Impact presentations will be complemented by a A0 portrait size poster that will be displayed for the duration of the Conference.

The abstract and a PDF of each accepted poster will be included in the conference app for delegates to view on their smart devices.

Presenters will also be asked to attend their poster during a poster viewing session to discuss the poster with other delegates.

Guidelines

  • Session Chair Guidelines

Audiovisual Equipment

Each session room will be equipped for the presentation of PowerPoint slides and include a data projector, computer with external speakers, lectern and microphone.

Presentation Files

Presenters will take their Power Point slides to the meeting on a memory stick, where an audiovisual technician will load your presentation.

Video and audio clips should be embedded in your Power Point slides rather than linking to external files.

All slides will be run from a central presentation computer. However, if you have a complex presentation, which includes multiple media files, we suggest you bring your own laptop as a backup in case of difficulties loading your presentation.
