Make 2012 the year with the “write” stuff. Now is the perfect time to make good on your New Year’s resolutions to enhance your professional reputation, write more and travel! AAPG and its partners are now soliciting abstracts for a variety of events worldwide. The deadlines are quickly approaching — two this month — so take a look at your options:

Here are a few tips to get you started:

  • Each event has its own set of guidelines for submitting an abstract — be sure to read and follow these guidelines.
  • Use an informative title that will capture attention and inform, but keep it brief.
  • Spell out acronyms the first time they are used, for example American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG).
  • Ask a co-worker to review your abstract before submitting.
  • Edit, edit, edit.
  • Don’t wait until the last minute to submit.
