Paper Submission Details

The GeoMontréal 2024 abstract submission phase is now complete (over 700 abstracts were submitted!) and corresponding authors have been advised of their submission’s acceptance.


Complete technical papers are required for abstracts submitted to the Geotechnical Themes and for all students applying for the IAH-CNC Tóth Award under Hydrogeological Themes. Only a final (formatted and corrected) abstract is required by authors in the Hydrogeological Themes. Authors of accepted abstracts must submit their technical papers/final abstracts by May 15, 2024, accompanied by one full delegate registration, using the online submission feature. Authors are expected to present their paper/abstract during the conference.


The Author's Release, Declaration and Understanding has been incorporated into the online submission process – all corresponding authors must select “Yes” in the Copyright Permission field.


The GeoMontréal 2024 Technical Committee will review all papers for clarity, technical merit, and relevance to the conference. The Technical Committee will also review all technical papers/final abstracts for making final decisions on participation in the oral or poster presentation program. Our goal is to inform corresponding authors of their paper/final abstract acceptance by July 3, 2024. In cases where the reviewing team feels revisions are necessary, online comments will be provided with revised papers being due by July 19, 2024.


All accepted papers/final abstracts, for which at least one author has registered for the conference, will appear in the published proceedings of the conference – each registrant will receive a digital version as part of their delegate registration.


To help authors ensure their paper meets the conference’s presentation requirements, a Paper Template/Guideline has been prepared. All authors must use this template and follow the guidelines to help ensure presentation uniformity in the conference proceedings – submissions that do not follow the prescribed formatting guidelines will be returned. Please take particular note of the abstract word count and page limits.


Final decisions regarding the presentation format and assigned session for approved papers/final abstracts will rest with the Technical Committee. GeoMontréal 2024 will include a poster session with dedicated time in the conference program. Authors can indicate their preference for oral or poster presentation when they submit their paper/final abstract. Authors will also be able to indicate if they would like to be considered for the Best Case Study Paper (CGS), Best Student Paper (CGS), or Tóth Award (IAH-CNC) at this stage.
