Presentation Guidelines

Speakers may keep the following points in consideration for an effective presentation.

General Guidelines

  1. The abstract must address scientific questions, report clinical observations, or contain primary scientific data.

  2. All submitted abstracts must comply with the guiding principles for experimental procedures found in the Declaration of Helsinki of the World Medical Association.

  3. Abstracts should be written in clear and concise English. We encourage non-English-speaking authors to have their abstracts checked by a native English speaker prior to submission.

  4. It is assumed that the presenting author will have adequate command of English to present and respond to questions. Otherwise, authors should choose a poster as their preference.

Oral Presentation

ACSTM 2018 aims to present the best up-to-date scientific research in all areas of STM.

All abstract submissions must be made electronically through our online abstract submission system. Abstracts submitted for the plenary lectures, invited lectures, session lectures and poster presentation would be reviewed on the basis of scientific merit, novelty and practical application. Please submit abstracts on a prescribed Abstract Submission Form via email at conference@acstm.org. The abstracts should not exceed 350 words & should be written in English language including paper title, naming the principle author with complete contact details (organization, mailing address, email, phone, fax and coauthors).

Poster Presentation

ACSTM 2018 welcomes e-Poster registration for students as well as researchers and professors from all around Asia.
