Please have your abstract checked for correct spelling, punctuation, grammar, and formal structure. The organiser reserves the right to edit abstracts, if necessary, prior to publication in the Abstract Book.

  6. All presenting authors are required to register by August 1, 2023. Registration along with payment of the registration fee is required by this date for the abstract to be published in the Abstract Book. Should the author fail to comply with either of these items, the organiser reserves the right not to include the author’s work in the Abstract Book.

Abstract Formatting

  1. All abstracts must be written in English. If your abstract is accepted for an oral presentation, you must be able to give your presentation in English and answer questions from the audience.
