Plenary Pre-Conference Meeting

Registration will be closed three days before each scheduled workshop slot to allow for review and sorting of submissions in order to facilitate discussion. After the sessions, participants may contact via e-mail (hsg.apac@gmail.com) for further questions and follow-ups.



Each abstract workshop would include a 10–15-minute short presentation delivered by regional experts to provide a broad overview of abstract writing, communication, and the disciplinary/thematic considerations for submission per HSR 2022 guidelines. The short presentation will be followed by workshop style breakout rooms (30 – 45 mins) for interaction, feedback, and Q&A for ideating and/or refining prospective abstracts. In the breakout rooms, participants will have the opportunity to present their ideas and abstracts, interact, and receive detailed feedback from regional expertise and peers.

The series of workshops will culminate into a plenary pre-conference meeting on 31 March 2022. Selected participants from the abstract workshops will be requested to present their work to a wider audience, which will be followed by short discussions from panel members. The curation of work for this meeting will depend on the nature of submissions received during the three abstract workshops.
