Abstract Submission and Guidelines

Abstract Submission is now closed

We are pleased to announce that there were over 800 abstracts submitted.  Thank you to all submitters for contributing to the high scientific standard of the congress.

According to the Cities and Volcanoes Commission (CaV) the COV conferences are intended to promote multi-disciplinary approaches to hazards. In submitting the abstracts and associated posters/presentations we invite you to address the relevance of their topic to some aspect of hazards mitigation, as stated by the mission of CaV “The Cities and Volcanoes Commission aims to provide a linkage between the volcanology community and emergency managers, to serve as a conduit for exchange of ideas and experience between volcano cities, and promote multi-disciplinary applied research, involving the collaboration of physical and social scientists and city officials.”


Abstract submission re-opens on January 10, 2022 and ends on February 13, 2022. (Closed)

It will be carried out online only via the online form above. 

If you declared that you wish to revise an abstract that you originally submitted, you will have the option to do so by following the instructions as soon as you log in.

Please note that you may submit your abstract whether you intend to attend as a virtual delegate or be physically present in Crete.

Authors may submit up to three (3) abstracts as first author. For new submissions there is a €40 fee for each submitted abstract, to be paid by the submitting author during the submission process. 

First author, submitting author and presenting author do not necessarily need to be the same person.

Each author may orally present only one (1) abstract in regular conference sessions. Additional abstracts may be submitted either as e-poster presentations, or to one of the Special Sessions. Speakers who are invited by conveners are exempt from this rule, as they may present additional abstracts orally in their sessions to which they are invited.

All presenting authors must be registered.

All abstracts must be written in English.

Abstract format includes: session number, title, author(s), affiliation(s) and email of corresponding author.

Text length is maximum 300 words.

Authors are invited to express their preference for oral or poster presentation; the final assignment will be made by the session conveners.
