Abstracts must represent original scientific work, not presented to other scientific manifestations, and include a clear statement regarding the aim of the research, the methods used, the results obtained, and the conclusions drawn. No citations and references are allowed in the abstract. Results should be detailed enough to support the conclusions.

Scientific Committee may reject abstracts if they contain no data, as it will be difficult to evaluate the suitability of these abstracts for the intended presentation. The acceptance/rejection decision of the Scientific Committee is final. If accepted, reviewers will decide whether abstracts need amendments and whether they should be oral presentations, posters, or flash talks. The oral presentations will be assigned to the most appropriate session of the symposium.


1. Abstracts should be submitted by May 1, 2020. The review process should end by May 20, 2020, while the revised version should be received by May 31, 2020.
2. Abstracts will be published online, on the website hosted by University of South Florida:
3. Talks will be 12 min long + 3 min for Q&A.
4. Posters will be portrait format, DIN A0, 841X1189 mm.
5. The poster flash talk session will be organized as a contest and will be dedicated to young researchers (BS, MS and PhD students). Flash talks will be 3 minutes long. More details about the contest coming soon.
6. If the time slots for talks are full, we may need to switch some talk requests to poster format. Should this be necessary, you will be notified by the ERIS100 Organizing Committee.
7. Technical rider for all presentations will be communicated in due time.


Presenters willing to publish the work presented during ERIS100 Forum, may do so after the event. International Journal of Speleology (Contact: Prof. Bogdan P. Onac -, Editor in Chief) and Travaux de l’Institut de Spéologie Emil Racovita (Contact: Dr. Eugen Nitu -, Editor in Chief) may consider your work, after going through the journal’s specific peer reviewing process.


Abstract submission and abstract peer review process is facilitated by Scholar Commons, a service of the University of South Florida. Scholar Commons is an institutional repository to preserve, collect and disseminate research. It is hosted by bepress.
