Breaking news for everyone writing abstracts for the 34th IGC - the 1500 character limit no longer applies.  Only 250 words.

Cheers,
Ollie

Ollie,
The PCO has taken the character limit off entirely.

Please use the 250 word limit only.

Regards

Paul

Hi Lynton, Ian, Paul,

Re Lynton's recent request of the conference organiser to change the character limit for abstracts...

Although the IGC website states a 250 word limit (no character limit implied) at http://www.34igc.org/submit-abstracts.php, the Abstract Template (http://www.34igc.org/FileLibrary/abstracttemplate1feb.docx) still includes a 1500 character limit as well as the 250 word limit.

I have recently had other potential authors also comment to me that it is impossible to restrict an abstract of 250 words to within 1500 characters.

Cheers,
Ollie
