FAQ – Conference Postponement

Accepted Abstracts

Given the postponement of the 2020 Bratislava Conference until September 2021, the Conference Team will offer authors of accepted paper submissions the following options:

  • to retain your paper submission as ‘accepted’ for presentation at the 2021 Bratislava Conference on Earth System Governance.
  • to update or amend your existing abstract submission but undergo a second round of review.
  • to withdraw your submission on the Oxford Abstract portal, in case you do not wish to attend the 2021 Bratislava Conference.

    Please note that no paper presentation for accepted abstracts will be held at the separate event, the 2020 Virtual Forum on Earth System Governance.

Procedure for selecting an option above
In order to select any of these options, we kindly ask you to login with your Oxford Abstracts account using this link https://app.oxfordabstracts.com/login and select the 2020 Bratislava Conference to access the abstract(s) you submitted for the Conference.

Please note that all your submissions for the 2020 Bratislava Conference now show up as incomplete and are marked in red. Please click the abstract submission title, for which the details will be made visible, and proceed to click Amend on the top left menu.

From here, we kindly ask you to scroll down the page and answer the question marked in red Conference Postponement – Options for Abstract Submissions, which will include the options above.

If one of your submitted abstracts was rejected, this submission will show up in the list as well as incomplete, but you do not need to follow up with anything in this regard.

We kindly ask you to indicate your preference by August 31st 2020. For authors wanting to update or amend their existing abstracts, we will provide this opportunity at a later stage and will provide information about the procedure in due time.
