Late-Breaking Posters

It gives us great pleasure to announce that we have received many abstracts from researchers by the Thursday, February 1, 2018 deadline. However, we assume that there are some researchers who are making advances in their research even after the deadline.

We consider it to be of great importance to have discussions based on recent research achievements and thus make a call for Late-Breaking Posters. The system will remain open until Friday, May 18, 2018, and we are looking forward to your submission.
