Rules for Abstract and Poster

Original and unpublished studies on scientific, technical research and problem-oriented applications in various disciplines of earth sciences can be presented at the congress. Papers can be given on behalf of individuals and/or organizations. A person can present a maximum of two abstracts orally. Abstracts must be submitted via conference website ( and allocated to a Specific Session. For a complete listing of Specific Sessions, please visit the Kurultay website. Please note that abstracts must be SUBMITTED before the deadline (23 January 2024). All submitted abstracts will be subjected to a peer review and the decision of abstract acceptance will be judged by session convener(s) and/or by expert reviewers.

All abstracts accepted for both oral and poster presentation will be published on the Kurultay Abstract Book. Full texts are also planned to be published as special issues in JMO and/or international periodicals. Developments on this subject will be announced on the web page of the Congress as soon as possible. 

Oral Mode

The normal length of an oral presentation is 15 minutes, including minutes for discussion. 

Data show will be available in all conference rooms. The speakers’ information (including the possibility of ZOOM presentation) will be available at meeting’s web-site at least 8 weeks prior to the meeting at the very latest.

Poster Mode

For each poster, free standing display boards which provide display space approximately 120 cm high and 90 cm wide, will be allocated. A prize for the BEST POSTER will be awarded by the Programme Committee at the end of the Kurultay and the following criteria are used to evaluate the posters and choose a winner: visual impact, clarity and scholarly contribution. The award will be presented to the recipient at closing ceremony.

Authors are encouraged to submit poster papers, since poster sessions minimize conflicts caused by the many parallel sessions and since there is more time reserved for the presentation and for the viewing of poster papers than for oral ones.
