Once the selection has been approved, applicants will be required to submit the copy of passport and the confirmation letter of the head of department. This letter needs to be signed by the head of department and should state applicant’s current work.
You are requested to pay the Participation/Registration fee of JPY20,000 in advance. In the event that your abstract is selected for the Travel Award Program, the fee will be refunded.
The program committee of each society will select the Travel Award winners by reviewing abstracts received for JDDW 2024.
Please apply by submitting your abstract. Online submission of abstracts for the theme sessions and digital poster sessions for the Travel Award Program can be made from the Submission Page (click the "Submit" button).
Each applicant will be notified by e-mail around late July of 2024.
After the decision on acceptance of abstracts, if you cancel your abstract or do not present your abstract at the conference, you will be prohibited from submitting abstracts to JDDW for a period of two (2) years.
The awards will be given for the first author or the presenters only.
When the first author or presenter is changed, the abstract will not be eligible for the awards.
