Each registrant may submit abstracts of his or her work for presentation during the 11th Biennial Combined Congress of APSS, APPOS with IFPOS. It is expected that the abstracts will include original data not previously published in a peer-review journal or the proceedings of a national meeting. Only those abstracts that have been reviewed and selected by the abstract review committee may be presented. Abstract submission will only be accepted electronically through the abstract submission module. The selected abstracts submitted to APSS will be published in Asian Spine Journal and therefore the authors have to give the consent including the copyright transfer while submitting the abstract.
