Individual Paper Presentations:

A block of 25 minutes will be designated for an individual paper presentation, in which 20 minutes are for the presentation and 5 minutes for discussion.

Poster Presentations:

These can be a very effective way of presenting studies, whether completed projects or in progress, via visual presentation (using charts, graphs, tables, and explanatory text). Presenters will be allocated blocks of time for their posters to be on display, and specific blocks of time when they will be expected to be available at the poster display, in order to respond to questions from conference participants. Specific guidelines for posters will be provided upon acceptance.


Symposia can be allocated 2-hour blocks. Each symposium consists of an introduction and a varying number of presentations plus discussion. The panel members may use their time as they wish, but organizers should reserve some of their allocated time for interaction between the panel members, and for extended audience response. Organizers of symposia must liaise on behalf of all their symposium participants with the congress program committee.


A block of 2 hours will be given to each workshop.

Working languages: English and Chinese, preferably English.


Proposals for individual paper presentations and posters need to include a title (no more than 20 words) and an abstract (maximum 250 words) and a summary for inclusion in the conference programme (50 words maximum).

Proposals for symposia need to include a title (no more than 20 words), a general abstract (maximum of 350 words), also an overall summary for inclusion in the conference programme (75 words maximum), as well as titles (max 20 words), abstracts (max 250 words) and summaries (max 50 words) for each of the individual papers.

Deadline for submission: December 31, 2013
