Abstract Submission Guideline

  • Abstracts should be submitted through E-mail at
  • Abstracts should be submitted in English and the abstract text should be less than 300 words.
  • Authors could further edit and modify submitted abstracts until the submission deadline. It is your own responsibility for the authors to ensure that the text does not contain typographical and/or grammatical errors.
