The Scientific Program Committee invites you to submit your research in the form of a one-page abstract (2500 characters) . We welcome scholarly research-based submissions .  Case study abstracts will also be welcomed.

Abstracts should include unpublished material and data. Material that has been formally published by the abstract submission dates will not be accepted. Most abstracts without data to support findings will be rejected. 然而, abstracts that describe study design and methods for well-developed and/or funded studies (i.e., no abstracts for pilot or preliminary studies) may be considered for poster presentation depending on abstract quality.

All abstracts will be anonymously peer reviewed, scored and chosen on merit for poster presentation.

Individuals whose abstract are selected will be required to register for the meeting; abstracts from authors who do not register will not be accepted.


注册套餐 includes simultaneous translation from Russian to English language , 参与证书 (英语) ,participation in scientific sessions, 会议资料, visit to the exhibition and 10-30% discount for accomodation in hotel.
