TipsTips for Submitting a Successful APVRS 2017 Abstract

Abstract submission for the 11th APVRS Congress in Kuala Lumpur is now open. Here are some tips and tricks for submitting a successful abstract.

  1. Think outside the box. Abstracts that include new and innovative ideas will surely attract the attention of the Abstract Selection Committee. For posters, e-posters and videos, creative design elements are encouraged, as long as they also enhance the presentation of scientific material.
  2. Focus on facts. It is essential that the ideas presented in submitted abstracts be factually accurate. Proofread your submission carefully to avoid any errors in language or scientific data that could be misleading, confusing or erroneous.
  3. Read the submission guidelines. Each abstract will be reviewed by members of the Abstract Selection Committee and given a final score. Abstracts that fail to follow requirements outlined in the submission guidelines may receive lower scores or be rejected outright.
  4. Don’t delay. Submit your abstract in a timely manner to avoid any last-minute technical complications or other issues. Late submissions will not be accepted.


The deadline to submit abstracts for APVRS 2017 is Monday, July 17, 2017 at 11:59 pm (GMT +8). If you have any difficulties, please contact the APVRS Congress Secretariat at
