Call for Sessions

New this year to the GRC Annual Meeting is a “Call for Sessions.” We are inviting the proposals for sessions at this year’s meeting. Sessions can be organized and led by up to three people, a session chair and two co-chairs. Successful session chairs will be expected to assist the technical chair to recruit papers and organize reviews.

The Session Proposal process is simple. Please email a Session Title and Description to Anh Lay at alay@geothermal.org by February 18, 2018.

Details on the requirements of the proposal are detailed below:

Session Title: Session proposals must include an informative title (20-300 characters, not including spaces) and entered in initial capitalization.

Description: The session description is limited to 250 words. The description will be used during the review process. Session descriptions will be reviewed by the GRC Annual Meeting committee for possible inclusion in the meeting. Successful session proposals will be listed on the GRC website during the abstract submission phase to assist submitters in identifying an appropriate session to submit their abstract.

Descriptions must adhere to the following criteria:

  • Concise definition of the scientific topic. Proposals must focus on scientific results and/or their applications.
  • Explain why the session is topical and relevant.
  • Sessions in tribute of a specific person will be considered, but appropriate justification must be provided.
  • Session proposals that are deemed to be primarily advertisements of commercial products and services will not be considered. Session proposals focused a specific experiment or development are encouraged.

Optional: Please include the names of any specific people that you would recruit to write a paper for this session.

A separate “Call for Papers” will be released once sessions are reviewed and selected.
