Something Perhaps Unique to the 1993 ISVHLD: Statistics and Acknowledgments
A total of 847 abstracts were submitted, and only one was rejected. Of the hepatitis viruses, C was the most frequent topic of these abstracts, with D the least frequent (C:D = 19:1). Of 1459 registrants and/or abstract-submitters from 60 countries, 1332 from 52 countries were able to reach the symposium site, overcoming a strong head wind (subacute ¥ hypertension). A total of 252 papers were presented orally in Plenary Sessions, Breakfast Workshops, Specialty Sessions, and Satellite Symposia, with 726 in Poster Sessions. The most attractive session seemed to be the Plenary Session: ‘Treatment of Hepatitis C with Interferon’, according to purchase orders for session videos. Around 200 papers included in this Book cited about 1600 papers as references: the most frequently cited journal, edited work, and paper were Lancet, Viral Hepatitis and Liver Disease (1991, Williams & Wilkins), and Choo et al. (1989) Science 244:359–62, respectively. The 5-day meeting cost ¥ 180 million.
