New This Year
The abstract submission process will be slightly different this year. Instead of submitting an abstract into pre-defined sections, we are taking a data-driven approach, and letting your submissions guide the creation of the sections. This year you will submit your abstract into a given content area. After the call for papers closes, we will evaluate the abstracts, and if accepted, we will assign your paper to the section in which it best fits. The only exceptions to this new format are Posters and the invited section of Hands-on Workshops (HOW).
Your submission will need to include a title and an abstract (summary) of no more than 300 words. You will also be asked to provide the name, affiliation (company, etc.), and email address for each author as well as contact information and a short biography for the primary author.
To improve the chances of your paper being selected for the conference, you are encouraged to include a working draft or outline of the paper. This will give the conference committee a better idea of the content, style, and quality of your paper.
Every abstract that is selected for oral presentation at the conference will require the submission of an accompanying paper for publication in the PharmaSUG China 2015 proceedings. Your paper should conform with the PharmaSUG China 2015 Paper Guidelines found in our Presenter Resources.
This year, writing a paper is optional for poster presentations. Poster authors can choose to include a paper or an electronic version of the poster in the proceedings.
Also new this year, authors can also submit their final presentation slides (due August 18, 2015) which will be uploaded to our website after the conference is over. Please know that PharmaSUG China no longer prints copies of the Conference Proceedings. Rather, the proceedings and authors’ final presentation slides (if any) are available on the PharmaSUG China website after the close of the conference.
