Each Workshop registration includes one abstract submission. A single author may submit additional abstracts for a fee of US $100 per abstract. If you have submitted more than one abstract, you must note this on your Workshop registration form and pay the additional US $100 per abstract fee.

The submitting author must be the same person who will present the abstract at the Workshop. All accepted abstracts will be printed in the IHW 2022 abstract PDF. A limited number of abstracts will be selected for oral presentations. Abstracts selected for oral presentations are also required to present a poster presentation.

If your abstract is NOT accepted for either a poster or an oral presentation, you will be refunded your Workshop registration fee upon request. If your abstract is accepted for presentation, poster or oral, the standard cancellation policy applies.
