Abstract submissions are now open
The Conference Organising Committee invites abstract submissions for presentation at the Australian Mine Ventilation Conference 2022.
We will be offering presentations onsite as well as presentations on our virtual platform. Presenters are encouraged to present in-person, with the option of recording their presentation for our virtual platform if unable to travel.
Abstracts that are accepted by the Conference Organising Committee will be subject to peer review. The selection criteria includes: relevance to the conference theme, accuracy and originality of ideas, significance of the contribution and quality of presentation.
All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings and presented during the technical sessions. All presenting authors are required to register, pay and attend the conference.

Submission of abstracts implies the author’s agreement to publish their abstract on the conference website. Authors must arrange and pay their own accommodation, travel and expenses to attend the conference.
Once the abstract submission deadline has passed, the Organising Committee will review all submitted abstracts. Authors will then be notified whether or not the abstract has been accepted for the program and whether an extended abstract or full paper is required.
Abstracts must be a minimum of 250 words, and a maximum of 300 words
Abstracts must be submitted in Arial 11-point font
The abstract title must be typed in Arial 14 point, bold and centred font
The presenting author/s name/s must be underlined
All author details, post nominals and affiliations must be included
All author email address must be included

Abstract submission FAQs
Where do I submit my abstract?
Do I need to use a template?
Yes – you will need to format your abstract using the abstract template. This can be found within the Abstract Submission Portal.
How long does the abstract review process take?
The abstract review process begins after the abstract submission deadline has passed. It usually takes around four weeks for the organising committee to review all submitted abstracts and reach a decision. This may take longer if the number of abstracts submitted exceeds expectations.
How will I know if my abstract has been accepted?
We will contact you via email regardless of the outcome.
