Home Abstracts Call for Applications for ASTMH Travel Awards 2023

Overview

The American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene (ASTMH) is an international society committed to equity and global impact through the treatment and prevention of tropical infectious diseases. The Annual Meeting is a dynamic forum for the exchange of the latest scientific and clinical advances in tropical medicine and global health. These abstracts, presented as either oral presentations or posters, are the cornerstone of the meeting’s scientific content. The 2023 Annual Meeting will be held in person October 18-22, 2023 at the Hyatt Regency Chicago in Chicago, Illinois, USA.

Call for abstracts

Poster Presentation: Oral abstract presentations are 15-minute presentations within a Scientific Session, generally with 10 minutes allocated for the main presentation and 5 minutes for questions and transition of speakers.

Due to the large number of submissions, the selection process for oral presentations is especially competitive. Please note that many abstract submissions indicating a preference for oral presentation that are not accepted for oral presentation will be assigned to poster presentations.

Poster presentations: In-person poster presentations will be displayed at one of three lunchtime poster sessions in Chicago. In-person poster presenters are requested to be available to informally elaborate and discuss the poster with interested viewers.
