Abstract submission agreement – rules and policies

In submitting an abstract for consideration for the GDA International Downstream Conference & Exhibition, the primary author is responsible for ensuring that work described in the abstract was conducted in accordance with the following rules and policies. All abstracts submitted are screened by the Committee to ensure that the abstract:

  • Includes substantive results
  • Does not promote a commercial product or service.


On occasion, the Committee may solicit additional information from submitters to ensure that the work reported in an abstract complies with the policies outlined below. If the additional information was not satisfactory, this constitutes grounds for abstract rejection. While abstracts are evaluated for scientific interest and are citable, the brevity of the presentation precludes rigorous peer review.


1. Research Conduct Policy 
Submission of an abstract constitutes a formal agreement and statement by the authors that they have conducted the study in accordance with the relevant guidelines. Abstracts reporting that was not conducted in accordance with these guidelines will be rejected by the Committee.
2. Identical Policy 
Presentation material presented at the conference must be identical to that described in the abstract. In particular, the title, authorship, and scientific content of the presentation at the meeting must match that in the abstract.

3. Presentation limits 
No presentation may be given by an individual who is not an author on the abstract.

4. Author consent 
All material must be the work of the authors listed.

5. Presentation agreement remuneration 
Abstract submission implies an understanding that the authors will receive no remuneration for participation

6. Permission for use of name and likeness 
Authors give the conference organizers and representatives the right to use their names in promotional and other material published in relation to the conference. If the author does not agree to this, they must send an e-mail to the organizers conveying the same.

For further information about our data protection procedures please see our Privacy Policy.

7. Indemnification Agreement 
Authors agree to indemnify and hold harmless the event organizers, their agents and representatives should the material presented or provided for publication be determined to defame, or slander an individual or organisation, violate the confidentiality of any individual or organisation, or infringe on another's copyright.

Submitting authors must agree to the above terms at time of submission.
