Delegates can also register online. They can submit abstracts during the registration.
The submitted abstracts would be shortlisted by the scientific committee and a
confirmation mail along with acceptance message for the abstract will be sent to the
registered e-mail ID of the registrant.

Registration
Registration is a two-step procedure. First, the applicant has to register for IISF and
would obtain a delegate ID. Using that delegate ID, the applicant will choose a
particular event in WSEC and complete registration process. Now the applicant is
registered and will have the profile page for all future communications. Now, the
registrant can upload abstract in their profile page and upload the necessary
documents from time to time by logging in to this profile page.

Abstract Submission
The interested delegates should submit their abstract online in due date. They will get
an auto generated response mail after submission. Please don’t treat this mail as the
acceptance of the abstract. Delegates would receive an acceptance message and
confirmation mail after the final due date of abstract submission. In the confirmation
mail their mode of presentation as oral or poster will be mentioned properly. Abstracts
