Instructions for Authors

We received an excellent response to the Call for Abstracts with over 230 abstracts submitted for consideration and look forward to creating a comprehensive technical program for the symposium.

Your paper must be submitted through the Slope Stability 2022 online paper management system (in Word format) by May 31, 2022.

Terms and Conditions:

  • At least one full conference registration must be submitted by one of the authors to permit the final review process to proceed. 

  • Authors are limited to two papers per paid registration.

  • For each submission, the names and e-mail addresses of three (3) potential reviewers, who are recognized in the area, must be provided.

  • Authors and co-authors cannot be reviewers of their own paper(s).

  • The Papers & Presentations Committee will also choose and contact reviewers.

  • All corresponding authors are asked to use the Word template and guidelines provided below when preparing their papers.

  • We recommend that authors for whom English is not your first language to have your paper reviewed/edited for English before submitting, as reviewers will not edit papers.

  • Slope Stability 2022 will include a poster session with dedicated time in the conference program.

  • Authors can indicate their preference for oral or poster presentation when they submit their papers.

  • We encourage papers from the same organization that are closely related to be combined. Doing so will increase the probability of being accepted for an oral presentation, since the combined paper will be of greater interest than multiple separated papers.

The paper review process will be completed by June 30, 2022. Authors will be informed by e-mail of the review results at that time or shortly after. Authors of approved papers will also be contacted by the Papers & Presentations Committee if their submission is selected for an oral or poster presentation.  The technical papers will be reviewed based on clarity, technical merit, and relevance to the symposium. All accepted papers for which an author registration has been received will be included in the symposium proceedings. All authors, including those who are asked to make changes or edits, will be required to submit their final papers in PDF format by July 15, 2022.
