Confirmed abstracts

Please check the SCIENTIFIC PROGRAMME for your presentation time.

If your topic contains addition TBC in the programme, then it means you don’t have valid registration for the Congress and your talk is not confirmed. 

Presenting authors should follow the final registration deadline (9 April) to be included in the programme.


Extended abstracts

Following the acceptance of the short abstract, the author(s) will be requested to submit extended abstracts, i.e. a short article. These manuscripts must not exceed five pages in A4 format (including abstract, figures, tables and references), and should follow the conventional scientific writing style, format and English language up to the full scientific standard.

Extended abstract should be written in MS Word using the official IPC2021 extended abstract template.

Get published in "Mires & Peat"

In addition to extended abstracts, authors of accepted abstracts have the opportunity to submit a full-length paper based upon it to the IPS/IMCG scientific journal “Mires and Peat” after the Congress.  This internationally recognized journal dedicated to publishing information on all aspects of peatlands and peat is well-established, peer-reviewed, on-line, free to access and submit, with a respectable impact factor and citation capabilities. 

Further information on submitting manuscripts to “Mires and Peat” will be provided in subsequent information and in the registration pack. In the meantime further information can be found on the journal website or by contacting the Deputy Editor-in-Chief, Professor Jack Rieley at

The Organising Committee and the Congress Scientific Committee look very much forward to receiving Your abstracts!
