The website for the 2022 ICAS Congress in Stockholm/Sweden is now open
The 32nd ICAS Congress to be held in Shanghai, China, had to be postponed to 6-10 September 2021 due to the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. Therefore, ICAS is able to accept additional abstracts for the Shanghai Congress. If you wish to submit an abstract to the Shanghai Congress, please visit the ICAS webpage for the instructions on how to create and upload your proposed abstract. Please be advised that these newly submitted abstracts, if accepted, will be scheduled in place of any presentations that may become unavailable as an effect of the conference postponement to 2021. You will be notified of acceptance or otherwise of your abstract as soon as it is evaluated.
