Submission Info

Thank you for your interest in SASTM’s annual conference, to be held 28 September 2016 to 1 October 2016, in Nelson Mandela Bay, Eastern Cape, South Africa. This year's theme is: “the boiling point?”

To ensure a smooth abstract submission and follow-up process, please note the following guidelines, policies, and tips.

Potential presenters are required to check the bottom of this form confirming that they have read and understand this information before completing the submission process.

All Speakers and Presenters Must Submit an Abstract!

Two options are available:


•If you intend to present an oral summary of the findings of a prepared paper, research, or project.

•If you are speaking in a session as an invited speaker, panellist, workshop participant, roundtable participant, etc., even if you do not have a written paper and/or do not expect to prepare a written paper.


If you prefer to prepare a visual presentation. In a poster session, there is no formal oral presentation; instead, each author is assigned a display area on which diagrams, graphics, data, pictures/photos, and a small amount of text are presented.


The following information will be required in the online form when you submit your abstract:

•Presenting author first and last name, e-mail address, company, and country.

•If applicable, co-author(s) first and last name, e-mail address, company, and country.

•Abstract category or Speciality section. Choose from the dropdown list.

•Title of your paper/presentation or poster

•Abstract (500-word limit) This text is used by the Programme Committee to assess the quality and potential of the presentation.

•Summary statement (30-word limit) This text will be included in the final programme to summarize your presentation for attendees.

•Presenting author bio (250-word limit) Your session chair will use this information to introduce you to attendees.

Presenting Author

Do not submit an abstract on behalf of someone else. This ensures that the submission record is correct and the presenter receives important conference communications from the beginning of the process. 

Please ensure that the person who will be making the presentation at the conference (hereinafter referred to as "you") is listed as the "Presenting Author," even if that person is not, e.g., the lead writer or researcher of the paper or project.

You must attend the conference and make your presentation in person.

Session chairs and co-chairs may not submit abstracts to the sessions they are chairing.

Confirmation of Submission

All abstracts must be submitted via the online form. Abstracts not sent via the online form will not be considered.

Upon successful submission of your abstract, you will receive an immediate e-mail notice. Be sure to print and/or save the confirmation of submission notice for reference in case of a problem or question.

If you do not receive these messages, your abstract has not been successfully submitted. Please try again, or contact for assistance.  The deadline for abstracts is 9 May 2016 (submissions close at 11:59pm UTC +02:00). 

Please do not submit "test" abstracts. If you have questions about the submission process, we will be happy to help you; please contact
