Multiple Submissions Policy

This policy does not include any sessions to which the presenter has been invited by ISME to contribute. It refers only to submissions that are made through the online submissions system.

Conference submissions for each presenter are limited to a TOTAL of four.  This can only be made up of:

  • TWO paper (individual or roundtable) and/or poster submissions;
  • TWO symposia and/or workshop submissions.

If a submitter exceeds these limits, the earliest submissions only will be reviewed. No individual will be permitted to present in more than a total of TWO Papers, Posters, or Workshops/Demonstrations sessions and TWO Symposia.

Depending on the number of submissions, the Conference Organisers reserve the right to further limit the number of presentations accepted for any one individual.

In addition to the maximum of four conference submissions as outlined above, further submissions are permitted where the delegate is listed as a contributing author (not first author) and is not a presenter. Delegates may also act as one symposium Discussant, in addition to their quota of four conference submissions as outlined above.
