Call for papers

Speaker information

Important note for presenters
 An integral part of a technical presentation (be it an oral or poster presentation), is the technical discussion at the end of the presentation. The author should be prepared and able to discuss their paper with their peers in the audience during the last 5 minutes of his timeslot. The discussion will be facilitated by the session chair.

If the speaker deems their level of English not sufficient to have this discussion, they can request an interpreter to be present at their presentation. This interpreter is an EAGE member, who is proficient in English as well as the speaker’s native language. The request should be made in writing to the EAGE office (abstracts@eage.org) before 1 May 2017, such that the office has sufficient time to locate an appropriate interpreter. Alternatively the speaker can bring a colleague or peer to assist them at the time of the discussion as well. The speaker should indicate this to their session chair prior to the start of the session and introduce the person to the chair at that time.

If a speaker is not able to come to the Annual to present their own paper, they may be represented by one of their co-authors. Again, to enable a meaningful technical discussion, the alternative speaker should be familiar with the presented work and its background. The speaker should inform the EAGE office at abstracts@eage.org before May 1st to indicate this.

If the alternate speaker is not familiar with the work and this becomes clear in the discussion, this could lead to rejection of future papers at EAGE events by both the original and the alternate speaker.
