- Will the topic be of interest to the Gastech audience and the energy industry?
- Will it capture the imagination of the audience and will it offer useful updates, progress or new information?
The Gastech Call for papers selection process begins once all papers have been submitted via our Call for papers online portal. Your abstracts should be submitted no later than 26 January 2024. The guidelines below will help you craft a successful application.
The abstract title should clearly and accurately describe the presentation’s primary content and prosed paper in a concise manner (500-words or less).
Use the category and sub-category listing to indicate the theme that best describes the abstract. A primary choice is required. If you believe your abstract is relevant to more than one category, submit it under the single category of best fit.
Graphs, diagrams, illustrations and/or tables should be used to enhance the Governing Body’s understanding of the abstract. Captions and any necessary contextual information to understand the figure(s) will not count towards the word limit.
Abstracts must be accompanied by a presenter profile. The proposed speaker (not the company) should be a good orator who can successfully convey and present information to an international audience in a live and interactive setting.
Submit your abstract for the technical and Commercial call for papers by 26 January 2024.
Yes, the recommended word limit is 500 words.
Yes. The papers themselves must differ content, however, they may follow the same stream, authors, and affiliation.
You can make your submission here. To complete your application, you will need to submit your 500-word abstract, and upload your photo and 100-word biography.
The Gastech Governing Body assesses each eligible application against a specific criterion to produce an overall mark. A meeting of the Governing Body will be convened in April 2024 to review the results of this process.
The Gastech Governing Body is made up of a senior, select group of professionals spanning the gas, LNG, hydrogen, and energy supply chain. With no political agenda or obligation to any over-arching organisation, Gastech's Governing Body advises on the best papers for inclusion in the Gastech Conference. In 2023, members reviewed over 1,000 abstracts from 35 countries.
After the call for papers closes, the papers are put through a democratic voting process; the governing body vote on the abstracts ensuring all submissions are fairly graded and purely chosen "by the industry, for the industry".
If your abstract is accepted by the Governing Body, you will be contacted shortly after the Final Selection Meeting and invited to speak on the Technical or Commercial conference. If you accept, you’ll be asked to supply further documentation for verification, including a presentation and full written paper. Once verification is complete, your paper’s credentials will be publicized and scheduled for presentation at the Technical or Commercial conference.
If your abstract is not selected for the conference, you’ll be notified at the same time as those who have submitted selected papers. Applicants whose abstracts are not selected will be retained on a shortlist in case a selected applicant renounces the position. We’ll contact you to discuss further options for your paper, for instance, as a poster within the exhibition halls, or as a digital article. Your abstract will also be considered for other events that we believe may benefit from its inclusion.
Your application is unlikely to be successful if it:
