CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

Blended Ways of Presentations


IOHSK is trying to move away from the either/or of in-person/conference-site-based or online/virtual only conferences. Whichever way you choose to present or can present, IOHSK will offer a rich experience. The choice to presentation online/virtual only could be an ethical decision for the planet, for security, or when the financial burden of travel is too much. However, online/virtual presentations will be limited with a pre-approval and delivered on the IOHSK Webinar platform. The online/virtual presentation will be carefully approved if they are original research and oral presentation. Please note that the 6th International Conference in Thailand will not provide all sessions available for online access and participation due to technical and financial issues.
