Guidelines for Abstracts
Abstracts for papers/presentations should be strictly 200 words or less. They should include the following so as to convey the salient features of your proposed paper/presentation:
1) A sentence or two at the beginning to provide a basic introduction to your work, phrased so as to be generally understandable to anyone interested in climate change and related issues, and particularly in relation to the themes for the ICARUS meeting;
2) One or two sentences that provide more detailed information of interest to practitioners and scholars working on aspects related to your selected theme;
3) Two or three sentences clearly stating the general problem your study will address;
4) One to two sentences summarising the main result (please use the phrase, “Our study finds,” or We show” or their equivalent);
5) One or two sentences explaining the scholarly and/or practical significance of the main results and findings, especially as compared to what is already known.
Selection Criteria: 
Our abstract selection committee will assess submitted abstracts on four criteria:
A. Innovative argument and policy relevance (25%);
B. Contribution to the larger literature and knowledge (25%); 
C. Quality of data, methods, and analytical rigor (25%);
D. Quality of Writing (25%)
We expect that the best papers presented at the conference will be included in one or two special issues of leading peer-reviewed journals, in consultation with authors/presenters.
