Paper Proposal Submittal Guidelines

General Guidelines

  1. Obtain the necessary clearance from your management.
  2. The paper proposal must be a minimum of 200 words and no more than 500 words in length and should include a description of the proposed paper, results/conclusions, and the technical category most applicable to your paper.
  3. The paper proposal must be received by 15 October 2016.
  4. Submit your paper proposals online. This website also offers guidelines for preparing and submitting your paper proposal on time.
  5. Do not include the title or author names in the body of the abstract. The title and author information will be requested separately through the submission system.
  6. Please note that, if accepted, your paper  may be published, as submitted, in conference information media, including on the SPE website.
  7. Authors whose paper proposals are accepted will be required to provide a manuscript for inclusion in the conference Proceedings. Authors who do not submit a manuscript and the associated publication forms by the manuscript due date will be withdrawn from the programme and will not be allowed to present. The programme committee will review draft manuscripts before the final versions are submitted to SPE for publication. Manuscripts will be due to SPE no later than 1 February 2017.

Changes, Cancellations and Withdrawals

SPE and the Programme Committee consider an accepted abstract as a commitment to present. If extenuating circumstances prevent the author from making the presentation, it is the author’s obligation to find an alternate presenter and notify their SPE programme Lead and their session chairs (if applicable). Withdrawals must be made in writing to the SPE office as soon as possible. Under no circumstances can a submitted abstract be changed once it has been submitted. Cancelations, particularly after a paper has been accepted and publicised are viewed by the Programme Committee as highly unprofessional.

A Word About Commercialism

SPE has a stated policy against the use of commercial trade names, company logos, or language that is commercial in tone in the paper title, text or slides. Use of such terms will result in careful scrutiny by the Programme Committee in evaluating abstracts and the presence of commercialism in the paper  may result in its being withdrawn from the programme.


All authors of papers presented at the conference will be required to complete and submit a copyright release form to SPE or submit the copyright exemption form where applicable.
