How to Submit Camera-ready Abstract, Extended Abstract or Paper for Oral and Poster Presentations

- Authors whose abstracts have already been accepted can modify their abstracts including title, contents and author information other than conference topics until the due date of camera-ready abstract submission (31 January 2022). If the conference topics have been amended, the review process may go through again, therefore the conference topics can be modified until the due date of abstract submission (31 October 2021).

- If the abstract is revised by an author who has already submitted the camera-ready abstract, the revised camera-ready abstract must be resubmitted according to the revision of abstract. If the amendment of the abstract is so simple that it is not necessary to revise the camera-ready abstract, there is no need to resubmit it.

- If the author wishes to revise only the camera-ready abstract of the accepted abstract, the author can resubmit it within the due date.
  • All abstracts must be submitted through the conference website. (Abstracts submitted in ways other than through the online system will not be accepted.)
  • Registration of Camera-ready Abstract(Mandatory), Extended Abstract or Paper(Optional) will only be considered if they are submitted completely together with all requested data and abstracts.
