Info for presenters

Abstract submission

Deadline for abstract submission: EXTENDED DEADLINE 10th April 2023 

We will only accept plain abstracts with 250 words maximum, which will be made available through Palaeovertebrata, the house journal of the EAVP. 

The abstract template is available for download from here. Please, use it! Abstracts not formatted following this template will not be considered

Remember as well that all abstracts must be submitted through our online registration system.

Instructions for presenters


The final schedule will not be provided until all abstracts have been reviewed and accepted. We will try to schedule time slots of 15 minutes (12'+3' for questions). 

All oral presentations need to be live, either onsite or online. No prerecorded talks will be considered. 

For those of you who cannot attend onsite, we will have some slots available for online presentations. Since these slots will be limited, justified online attendance will be requested (please check registration and payment guidelines). 

Please, beware that oral communications could be changed to posters if not enough slots are available.


All abstracts that will be presented for poster contributions also need to be uploaded through our online registration system. Posters have to be prepared in vertical format, A0 size.

Posters will also be uploaded online for online attendees. Because of this, we will request a pdf of your poster about two weeks in advance (10 MB maximum). A Slack channel will be activated during the days of the meeting, for questions and discussions about posters and presentations from the online attendees.


If you wish your presentation not to be recorded, photographed or shared on social media, feel free to add the logo provided here

If you wish to include the EAVP 2023 logo in your presentation, you can download it from here.
