No Show Policy

By submitting your abstract, you are agreeing that you will be available to present during the 2018 GeoConvention, May 7-9. If you do not agree with one or more of the statements, please e-mail
  • I understand that papers should be submitted only by authors who are certain of their availability to attend the Conference and also of their ability to deliver effective presentations.
  • I understand that all presenters must register as a delegate to attend the meeting (discounted delegate presenter rate)
  • I understand that GeoConvention has implemented a No-Show policy effective for the 2018 program and will be enforced per the outline below:


If no one appears to present an accepted paper (poster or oral) that is listed in the Delegate Handbook, the presenting author will be placed on a No-Show List unless excused by the Technical Chair. Abstracts submitted to a subsequent Convention in which the presenting author is on the No-Show List will be automatically rejected. For the first offense, the presenting author will be placed on the No-Show List for two years. If there is re-occurrence, the time will double for each subsequent offence. Additionally, secondary authors will be put on a Non-Compliant List for one year and so notified. If an author remains on the Non-Compliant List for three years, the author moves to the No-Show List. Presenting authors who withdraw their paper in writing to the Technical Chairs before four weeks prior to the commencement of the Conference will be considered compliant and not be placed on the No-Show List. Presenting authors that withdraw or are a no-show after this date are placed on the No-Show List at the discretion of the Technical Program Chair.


By submitting your abstract you allow GeoConvention to publish and promote your submission through all media formats including USB sticks and archiving. GeoConvention will not own the material and the material will remain the property of the individual submitter. Any questions can be directed to
