The organizing committee will solicit E-Poster submissions for the conference from 1 December 2021 until 28 February 2022. E-Poster presentations will be reviewed by the scientific committee for acceptance in the program relevant to “Health and disease management in aquaculture”
In addition, the committee will select appropriate abstracts from all submissions for a short 3-minute oral presentation called ‘Poster Pitching’. You can indicate your intention to participate in this poster pitching when you register. Please note that specifying poster pitching as a preference does not guarantee placement in that category. The final presentation format will be determined by the scientific committee.
Since we will NOT be editing all abstracts, so please remember to fully edit and carefully proof your content before submitting it. Abstracts must be in final form with no grammatical, typographical, or factual errors.
As they come in, all submissions will be reviewed for acceptance, and acceptance notifications will be emailed to the presenter (as designated on the abstract submission form). Acceptance will be emailed to the presenter and posted on the Aqua-Thailand website on 4 March 2022. Every accepted E-Poster presentation presenter must make the payment by 10 March 2022, or their abstract will be withdrawn from the conference.
