Abstract Requirements and Guidelines
- The length should correspond to approximately 2-6 pages, double-spaced, in a Word document.
- Graphics/photos will need to be uploaded separately. For a quick tutorial on how to upload your graphics/photos, please click here.
- You will type the title, authors and keywords into individual fields, separately from the body of the abstract.
- You must copy and paste the body of your abstract into the online system.
- Do not include any headers or footers in your document, as it won’t translate into the online system.
- The online system allows for some basic formatting (bold, underline, italics) but will automatically remove formatting such as line spacing, font type and size, and margins.
- We recommend that you do not put your document in a PDF, as it won’t copy and paste correctly into the online system.
- Abstracts must clearly define the objectives, status, methodology, findings, and significance of the investigation or study.
- Submissions on hot topics, regulatory issues, and new water or wastewater technologies are especially welcome.
- There is no limit to the number of abstracts that may be submitted by an individual, company, organization, or institution.
- Each abstract should be submitted one time only. Duplicate abstracts will be discounted.
- Membership in WEF is not a requirement for submission and/or presentation.
- All participants must register for WEFTEC 2014 and are responsible for their travel and lodging expenses and registration fees for the conference.
- Registration will open in April 2014.
The official language of WEFTEC 2014 is English.
Final acceptance is contingent on receipt of a completed paper by August 2014.
Use these sample abstracts for content guidance. Please note that most formatting is stripped from abstracts upon entry into the online abstract submission system, so we have no recommended formatting guidelines other than what is listed above.
