Abstract Submission and Paper Awards
are to be prepared and submitted electronically according to the
instructions given below. The conference is still accepting abstracts.
Content. The abstract should indicate the contaminant(s) being studied and the scale of the project. Identify the technology or methods. Case studies with novel approaches are especially desired. Preference will be given to those abstracts that provide a concise and thorough summary of the project objectives and results.
Format. Abstracts are written in English and cannot exceed one page and abstracts must be prepared using standard PC-based MS Word software. Use a 11-point serif font (e.g. Times New Roman) and leave 1-inch (2.5-cm) margins left, right, top, and bottom. Center the title (maximum 12 words, title case, bold type) at the top of the page. Leave a blank line before beginning the author list, which also is centered. If several authors are from one organization, the organization need be typed only once. After each author or group of authors, use parentheses to enclose their affiliation - institution (first level only, omit division, department, etc.), city, state/province (if applicable) and country. Bold and italicize the name of the presenting author. Leave a blank line after the authors and then begin the text, typing it single-spaced and justifying only the left margin. Leave one blank line between paragraphs; do not indent paragraphs. Authors can download an example from the Conference web site at http://www.aasci.org/conference/env/doc/abstract-format-2014.pdf.
