ABSTRACTS

Please follow the instructions below very carefully.

Everyone interested in presenting a paper or poster at this Conference must submit an abstract. Abstracts must not exceed 200 words and must be submitted online through the link below. The Conference registration fee must be paid within 30 days of receipt of acceptance of the abstract by the Program Committee and may be paid online via Pay Pal.

The abstract should describe the purpose, methods, and conclusions of the presentation. Use the active voice and transmit your research results clearly and concisely. Avoid jargon.

Please adhere to the following format instructions for the body of the abstract:

  • Maximum length is 200 words.
  • Use a concise title.
  • Use New Times Roman (or Times Roman) type, font size 12. Single space.
  • Use font size 12 and Times Roman type.
  • Do not use abbreviations.
  • Do not use underlining, boldface type, italics, subscripts, or superscripts.
  • Do not include any codes for justification, hyphenation, line height, line centering, margins, spacing, fonts, page centering, page numbering, suppression, or tabs, in the abstract.
  • Do not use bulleted lists.
  • Include keywords at the end of your abstract.

Abstracts will not be edited; authors are responsible for avoiding spelling, grammatical and typographical errors. Submission of abstracts grants permission for the Conference sponsors to include them in any compilation and advertising associated with this Conference and permission to disseminate them electronically.

KEYWORDS

Keywords may be compound (such as ethnogeography). Keywords should be nouns, not adjectives or adverbs. Do not use abbreviations. Keywords should be carefully selected as they will be used to assign papers to specific sessions.

If the presentation is about the use of color cartography in the portrayal of racial patterns, appropriate keywords might include "cartography-color." Under no circumstances should a comma be used within a keyword.

In referring to a systematic subfield, do not use the word "geography." Use "landscape” as the keyword and not "cultural geography."

If you have a choice between the plural and singular form, use the plural. If your keyword could be "race" or "races," use "races."

STUDENT PLACEMENT


You must specify your affiliation as Faculty, Practicing Professional, or Student. If a student, you must indicate “Undergraduate,” “Masters,” or “PhD” student. Undergraduates and MA students may present only on a student panel or in a poster or paper-poster session but not in a regular paper session. Space limitations are the problem. PhD students are exempt from this regulation. Failure to report your status will result in a rejection of the abstract. Descriptions of posters and poster-papers appear on the REP website: rep-conference.binghamton.edu.
