All PAG Asia participants are invited to submit abstracts for the Poster Session. A Poster Session is a presentation where materials in addition to the abstract—such as genetic maps, physical maps, photographs, graphs, and/or tables— are presented on a display board along with textual summaries of the material.



Poster Abstract Submission Form will be online December 15, 2017.



Poster Abstract Submission Information

All abstracts will be reviewed by the Abstract Coordinators (listed in sidebar at right). Accepted abstracts will be presented at the Poster Session at the conference. After the conference, the abstract will also be available online and will remain in the searchable archives.


Note: The presenting or primary author must be registered for the conference prior to submitting an abstract.

  • All abstracts must be submitted electronically. We do not accept submissions via mail or fax.
  • Each registered attendee can be the “Presenting Author” on only one poster abstract, although they may be a “Non-Presenting Author” on an unlimited number of abstracts.
  • Abstracts are limited to 250 words within the "abstract text" section of the submission form.

The Poster Abstract Submission Deadline is May 4, 2018. All abstracts will be reviewed by the Abstract Coordinators, within 2-3 weeks after the submission deadline. You may consider your abstract accepted if not notified otherwise by May 18, 2018.

Please be advised that all accepted abstracts are considered public information and by submitting an abstract you agree to allow PAG Asia and Scherago International to post the abstract on the conference web site.
