icon Abstract Submission Guideline

  • Submission Method: Online abstract submission system only
  • Presentation Type: You may choose your preferred method of presentation of your abstract among the following four types:
    • Oral Presentation: 12-minutes presentation with 3-minutes Q&A session for each presentation. All presentations must be created in a Power Point-compatible format. You will get more details later if you have this style of presentation accepted.
    • Poster Presentation: The poster will be displayed in designate time to review and discuss by delegates. The maximum poster size is 90 x 120 cm. Presenters will receive instructions to post their posters prior to their session and will need to present at their poster to interact with attendees for the designated time period.
    • Symposium:
      • General Symposium
      • Partnership Symposium (By Invitation ONLY)
      A 75-minute session presents 4 to 5 abstracts on a single theme from different perspectives on a sub-theme. Symposia are expected to be organized around a theme with a logical connection between speakers and/or a discussant to bring things together. An ideal format is a moderator (brief introduction), three speakers (studies), and/or a discussant (summary of the presentation and provide the future direction). The symposium organizer should be on behalf of other speakers submitting the abstracts to Online Abstract Submission System.
      Updated on May 04, 2021
      The enhanced presentation format, regarding SYMPOSIUM, will permit presenters to develop their oral delivery in the language one chooses, as opposed to an exclusive option of English. The development in format structure to suit our membership is as follows: 
      a) All SYMPOSIUM abstracts must send by English as usual.
      b) Regarding SYMPOSIUM, presentation/text is preferred to use English, but any mother tongue language will be accepted.
      c) Regarding SYMPOSIUM, the final conclusion/or discussant materials should be presented briefly in English.
