Abstracts can only be submitted via this website. Abstracts sent by post or email will not be accepted. No exceptions will be made. Should you experience any problems with the electronic submission, please contact Stephanie Rania (srania@hawaii.edu).

1. Types of Presentation

All authors should be prepared to do an oral or poster presentation. However, if you would like to be excluded from oral presentations, please check the appropriate box in the Abstract Submission Form.

The Scientific Program Committee reserves the right to assign a different presentation format from the one selected by the presenting author.

Oral Presentation: A selection of abstracts will be accepted for oral presentation. Presenters will be given 10 minutes to present their research findings and 5 minutes for discussion.

Poster Presentation: Participants are also encouraged to submit their work as a poster presentation that promotes direct exchange of ideas between presenter and delegates. Posters will be set up in a dedicated area on Thursday and Friday.

2. Abstract Receipt Confirmation

Upon successful submission, authors will receive an automated acknowledgment via email.  Please check your spam folder if you don’t see the confirmation email in your inbox. Lack of acknowledgment will indicate that the abstract was not received.

Abstracts must be received by March 24, 2019. Abstracts received after this date may not be accepted.

3. Notification of Acceptance

The Presenting Author of each abstract accepted for publication will be notified by email by April 24, 2015. If the presenting author is unable to present the abstract, a co-author can take his/her place. The Presenting Author must inform the Scientific Committee of this change in presenter name by May 15, 2015.

4. Withdrawal

Submitted abstracts cannot be withdrawn unless with valid reason(s) approved by the Scientific Committee.

5. Originality of Abstracts

Submitted abstracts must describe unpublished work or a novel presentation of already published work.

6. Publication

Abstracts will be made available to all participants in the program and presented exactly as submitted. Talks will be made available to all participants after the meeting using a link given at the meeting after redaction of unpublished materials.  Any abstract considered unsuitable for reproduction will not be published.  In cases of abstracts with extremely poor English, the Abstract Selection Committee reserves the right to modify the submitted text. The Abstract Selection Committee, however, will make every effort in these instances not to alter the meaning of the text and will contact the submitting authors prior to publication. All abstracts accepted for presentation (either oral or poster) will be included in the workshop only if payment of registration has been made.
