Welcome FAOPS2019

Calls for Symposia

  • The organizing committee of FAOPS2019 calls for symposia in the following two categories
    (1) general track
    (2) early-middle carrier investigator track
    The main chair (the organizer) must belong to FAOPS member or associate member society*. The strict deadline of submission is the end of April 2018. The most important criteria for selection of symposia by the organizing committee is the quality of the symposium and the speakers. We also think much of internationality and balance of gender. We do not accept a proposal which too much resembles any of the pre-planned symposia by the organizing committee **. The result of selection will be notified no later than August 2018.

    * see the following website for FAOPS members and associate members.

    ** see the following website for detailed information of the pre-planned symposia by the organizing committee.
