All posters should feature a title, your name, and the name of the institution where the research was parformed.

Step 6. Presentation on the day
icon Oral presentation
Speakers are kindly requested to arrive on the reception desk of each session room 30 minutes before their presentation at the latest.
< Presentation time >
Invited Lecture: Presentation 35min, Discussion 5min, Total 40min
Contributed Paper: Presentation 15min, Discussion 5min, Total 20min

icon Poster presentation
When presenters arrive at the reception desk of the room for poster presentation, they receive a pointing stick and pushpins. Please mount their posters on the assigned poster board with each presentation number.
After their presentation, return the pointing stick and pushpins to the reception desk of the room for poster presentation.
All the posters should be displayed on board from mounting posters time through removing posters time.
Poster presenters are kindly requested to stay in front of the poster at least during the obligation time for presentation and discussion.

Important Notice

* SPSJ shall accept your submission to IPC2023 after confirmation of your registration and payment of registration fee.
* SPSJ shall not accept your submission after deadline of submission under any circumstances.
* When you will neither participate in IPC2023 nor present on your presentation time based on scientific program, SPSJ will treat your oral/ poster presentation as cancel.
* IPC2023 scientific program and speaker's presentation style will be determined by the organizing committee. The organizing committee will be hold after closing application for presentation. As the oral presentation slots are limited, selected abstracts will be grouped into themed oral or poster sessions by the organizing committee.
