Abstract submission is closed.
Thank you for your submission.

Submissions, modifications, or deletions of abstracts will not be accepted after the deadline. Traffic to the site is expected to be heavy close to the deadline, which may cause a delay in processing the submission of your abstract. You are recommended to submit abstracts as early as possible.

Abstract contents submitted online may be modified until the deadline. Please note that you may not be able to make modifications just before the deadline if traffic is heavy.

Changes, such as to the names of co-authors, after the deadline will not be accepted. Please be sure to include those corrections during the abstract submission period.

Grant for participants from overseas

If you want to apply for a grant, please click “Grant for participants from overseas” in the online abstract submission system.

The applicants from overseas affiliations will be evaluated from the abstract, and the awards will be granted to the ten most outstanding researches on the atherosclerosis. A selected applicant will receive a grant (from JPY125,000 to JPY200,000, depending on the location of the country).

Disclosure of Conflict of Interest (COI)

A disclosure statement of conflict of interest (COI) must be submitted along with the abstract. It is the author's responsibility to report any real or perceived financial conflict of interest. Any potential for financial gain that may be derived from reported work may constitute a potential conflict of interest. Disclosure is required in any case in which an individual or company stands to benefit financially from research performed. Therefore, the onus is on each author to disclose any financial benefit to an individual or company.

Complete setting password and submission, Confirmation and modifications of submitted abstracts

When submitting an abstract for the first time, registrants will need to decide on an optional password.

After the submission of your abstract is complete, a registration number (10000 series) will be issued automatically. The submission process for the abstract is complete when this registration number is issued (A message confirming registration will be sent.). If the registration number does not appear on the screen, the submission has not been received.

Use the confirmation/modification button to make corrections to submitted abstracts. You can modify and check the abstract as many times as you like by entering the registration number and your password until the submission period deadline. You may also delete your submission. Note that if you click the new “Submit (登録)” button each time you modify the contents, there will be duplicate submissions of the same abstract.

Registrants must keep a record of the registration number and password issued to them. We will not respond to inquiries about registration numbers or passwords to prevent browsing and misuse by third parties.

If you believe that you have not received a message from us, check the Junk folder first. If you have a “Spam Mail Folder” on your WEB mail account, in addition to your mail software’s Junk mail folder, check that as well.
