Invited Authors Guidelines

For Conveners

Conveners shall invite authors to present at their sessions.

Number of Invited Authors

-Each session except for Union and Public session can have up to TWO invited (either oral or poster) presentations and ONE invited poster presentation per oral time slot.
*The number of invited authors for the poster only sessions will be the same as one oral time slot is able to have.
*Oral time slot is the allocated time slots excluding Poster Core Time (both Daytime and Evening Core).

-The assigned number of invited presentations will NOT be affected by the final number of slots after abstracts submission.

Invited Authors Priority

-Conveners can decide the length of presentations (over 15 min) for the oral presentation made by invited authors, but one time slot is 90 minutes and this timeframe cannot be changed.

-“Invited Author” signs for poster presentations of the invited author will be prepared at the site.

- Invited authors will be listed on the JpGU Meeting Website.

Abstract Submission

-Invited authors are NOT exempt from the process and fees associated with abstract submission. They are requested to submit the abstract(s), make a registration and payments on their own as with all other authors.

Financial Support

JpGU does NOT provide any financial support -reimbursement for abstract submission and registration fee or travel expenses – to the invited authors.

Please contact JpGU Office in advance, in case the conveners will cover them.

Invited Author Registration

After the session is approved, conveners can list their invited authors from the website. The information entered here is used to be posted sequentially online on the invited authors list.

Please note that this is NOT a formal registration of the invited author(s).

Conveners must register the invited authors during the scheduling process, February 22 – 27, 2018. This is the formal registration of the invited authors.

The registration made during this period will be uploaded on the web as a finalized list.

Please contact JpGU Office in case of any changes including cancellation of the invited author listed on the web as soon as possible.

JpGU does NOT have the online system to send invited authors an invitation letter. Please contact directly to your invited author(s) and confirm their acceptations.

Union Sessions Only

There is no limit on the number of the invited authors for Union sessions.
