3.Procedures in Confit registration

Please note that there have been some changes to the registration procedure due to the change of the registration system.

  • In conventional PASREG registration, the procedure was such that “after obtaining the registration number (reference number), the abstract [was] inserted and then it [was] submitted again.” However, with Confit, registration and submission of the abstract will take place at the same time. Hence, please start registration after having prepared the PDF file of the abstract.
  • If you are presenting in both the General Presentation session and the Symposium presentation session, you will use the same login ID.
  • The maximum length of an abstract to be registered is one page.
  • Saving does not complete registration. Please make sure to proceed to the last stage, “Submit.” Also, please check your e-mail for a notification that registration has been completed.

 

  • Logging in
  • In order to submit an abstract, you must have a registered account. If you do not have an account, please register for an account through the “Create an account” link. You cannot register for an account once the submission period is expired (you need to register for a new account for each Academic Meeting).

 

  • After logging in, registration, and submission of the abstract
  • Please start the registration procedure after you have prepared the PDF file of your abstract.
  • Up to ten affiliations can be registered.
  • Information of up to ten presenters can be registered.
  • To delete affiliation or author, please leave everything blank and update.
  • Only presenters should input their e-mail addresses.
  • Before completing registration, please confirm that you have observed “terms and conditions” on the screen by ticking “Agree.”
  • After a set amount of time has passed (when there is no clicking for more than 60 minutes), you will automatically be logged out. You will then have to log in again.
  • Please upload the PDF file of your abstract.

 

  • Confirmation of the completion of registration
  • An e-mail “Your presentation has been registered” will be sent. Please make sure that you have received it.
