You can view or modify your abstract during the abstract submission period. Click the gView/Modify/Delete Abstracth button at the bottom of this page, then log in with your abstract number and password.

Neither modifications nor additions can be made to your submitted abstract once the abstract submission period has been closed. Please ensure that your submission is accurate and that no authors, affiliations and other information have been accidentally omitted, since your submission will be published as is.

The abstract submission system and the registration system are two different systems. Modifications you make in one will not be reflected in the other. You must update the content of both pages separately when making modifications.
