Notes for authors

  • You are required to submit a maximum of 250 words abstract for evaluation by the scientific committee
  • Each registered participant can submit a maximum of two abstracts
  • Each abstract will be evaluated by the scientific committee and the committee will decide whether the abstract is for a poster or oral presentation. The committee also has the right to accept or reject the abstract if the abstract is found to have serious flaws and has no scientific merit. The decision by the committee is a final.
  • Those abstracts that are accepted for presentation during conference will be notified by the scientific committee by 1 Oct 2016.
  • The authors of where their abstracts are accepted for presentation in the conference are required to prepare the extended abstract for publication as journal proceeding.
  • The extended abstract will be published in the journal of Frontiers in Bioengineering and Biotechnology, section Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine [Indexed in: PubMed, PubMed Central, Google Scholar, DOAJ, CrossRef, Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS)]
  • The selection of the abstracts for publication as journal proceeding will be decided by the scientific committee which are based on the originality of the works, the scientific merit and will be based on peer-reviewed process. The authors have the right to decline for their abstracts to be published as journal proceeding.

GUIDELINE FOR ABSTRACT SUBMISSION

The following layout should be followed:

    • Title: Abstract titles should be brief and reflect the content of the abstract. It should be in sentence case, bold, Times New Roman, size 12 point font and left justified.
