  1. All abstracts must be submitted using the online form. Abstracts will not be accepted via mail, fax or e-mail.

  2. Abstracts must be in English.

  7. With regard to research using human subjects, the CYTO Asia Committee endorses the protections embodied in the Basic Principles of the Declaration of Helsinki and their expansion in the regulations governing research supported by the U.S. Government (45 CFR Part 46; 56 FR 28003). The CYTO Asia Committee does not endorse and will not publish the results of research that was not conducted in accordance with these principles. Investigations involving animals reported in abstracts must have been conducted in conformance with approved principles of the care and use of animals in research.

  8. Abstracts submitted for CYTO Asia 2017 will be reviewed and scored by multiple reviewers from the Program Committee. It is important for authors to take the time to prepare a quality abstract of the work they would like to present. Abstracts must include background, methods, results, and conclusions. Begin with an introduction, describing the area of the work and background for the reader. The methods used should be described, especially any new or improved techniques. The results should be clearly stated, and their significance in the context of previous work should be described in the conclusion. Reviewers will be asked to evaluate the significance, novelty, and impact of the work described and will assign a score on a scale of 1-5 (Outstanding, Very Good, Good, Marginal, Unacceptable). The resulting scores and comments, along with program balance considerations, will be used to organize the parallel and poster sessions.

  9. The Program Committee reserves the right to decline a presentation for any submitted abstracts that lack scientific content or merit, or merely announce the availability of a resource or service.

  10. Results or studies that have been published or that will be accepted for publication elsewhere prior to the submission deadline may not be accepted for presentation.

  11. After successful abstract submission, you will receive an e-mail confirmation that includes the submission ID number, login name, password, and abstract title.

  12. Please add [email protected] to your contacts so that you may receive important messages and notifications.

  13. Programming information (abstract acceptance letters) will be sent by email to presenting authors. Please check the important dates and deadlines page for notification dates.
