Abstract Submission Guidelines

Submitted abstracts will be subject to internal review. The selection criteria include relevance and significance to the conference as well as accuracy and originality. Accepted abstracts will be published in the electronical Conference proceedings and presented at technical or poster sessions.

Upon completion of the Conference, authors have the opportunity to submit their work for publication in a special issue of the internationally refereed journal “Minerals” (ISSN 2075-163X, Impact Factor 1.5, http://www.mdpi.com/journal/minerals). The acceptance and publication of the abstract implies that at least one author must attend the conference to present the paper.
Authors are required to register for the conference.

Abstract submission, conference registration as well as payment are due by 01 April 2017.
