6. Audio Guide (on App)

All the poster presenters are requested to submit the audio guide of their poster by Friday, February 23, 2018.

Audio Guide Submission Form:
File type: mp3 or wav file
Length: 3 minutes at maximum
Due Date: Friday, February 23

The audio guides of the posters are the audio files in which poster presenters briefly explained their posters. The audio guides aim to invite participants to the posters outside of the poster sessions and to help the poster presenters to get a chance to learn from the other poster presentations. The audio guides will be available on the conference app (a download instruction and a passcode will be announced at registration).

The sound file should be submitted as an mp3 file. It should not exceed 3 minutes, and should contain the brief explanation of your poster. The sound file should be submitted via submission form.
