Final Six Presenters Selected for the Rising Star Symposium of AOCO 2023
Posted at : 28-June-2023

I am delighted to announce the final six outstanding rising stars of AOCO 2023 as follows:

Tara Boelsen-Robinson
Masaomi Miura
Hyemi Shin
Chong Yi Ting
Alexander Mok
Ngoc-Trinh Thi Nguyen
(No specific order)

All submitted abstracts were of high quality, and there was not a significant difference in the evaluation scores among them. The abstracts that did not make it to the final selection were also excellent, and I hope that they will be presented at AOCO 2023 either as oral presentations or posters, even if they are not part of the Rising Stars Session.

The time slot for the presentation will be scheduled from 14:30 to 16:00 (HKT) on August 6th (Saturday).

HKOS will provide 6 quotas of a lump sum of USD 1,000, intended to cover a round-trip economy class air ticket, accommodation in our conference hotel, and complimentary registration. Therefore, please note that the presenters are responsible for arranging their own hotel accommodation. HKOS has negotiated a preferential rate with the conference hotel, so HKOS kindly asks the presenters to fill in the attached booking form and return it to HKOS if they are interested. If the airfare costs exceed the expected amount, please send the booking receipt to HKOS, and HKOS will consider providing a top-up based on the actual payment.
