Call for abstracts is now closed!
Please submit your paper through the Paper Submission System.

The abstract submission process has changed from last year. You will be asked to classify the abstract into sections at submission time.

Below is the essential information you will need to submit an abstract for the conference. Before submitting an abstract, please review the information carefully. If you have any questions about the submission process, please contact Cindy Song, Academic Chair, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Submission Basics

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 (Bio Template) 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.

Presentation Options and Sections

There are several ways to present: 50-minute papers, 20-minute papers, 10-minute papers (Coder’s Corner section only), and e-posters. Papers will be assigned to one of 15 academic sections. Several presentation tracks will run concurrently at the conference.

When you submit your paper proposal, you will specify the section you think your paper best fits. You can also specify second- and third-choice sections. If your first-choice section is full, or if the section chair feels your paper fits better elsewhere, your paper may be assigned to another section. If we are in doubt as to the best choice, we will talk to you.

Paper Guidelines

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 2017 proceedings. Your paper should conform with the PharmaSUG China 2017 Paper Guidelines found in our Presenter Resources.

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.

Authors can also submit their final presentation slides (due June 30, 2017) 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.
