Step 1.    Online submission of Abstracts by May 31 (Fri), 2024

Authors must submit about an English abstract (text only, no template) of 450 words along with your contact information.

Select your preferred technical topic number and select presentation type between Oral, Poster and Either.

Step 2.    Online submission of Draft Papers or Extended Abstracts by July 30 (Tue), 2024

  • Once abstracts have been accepted, authors may then submit either '8~10-pages draft papers' or '2-pages extended abstracts' for review.

  • Please upload  a PDF file of your draft paper or extended abstract.

Step 3.    Online submission of Final Paper by September 27 (Fri), 2024

  • Once draft papers/extended abstracts are reviewed and approved, author may then submit their revised final paper.

  • Again, please submit a PDF file.

  • Hard copies of papers are no longer required.

  • Note that the secretariat and TPC will not edit or proofread your final paper.
