ICCEMB | International Conference on Coastal Ecology and Marine Biotechnology

International Conference on
Coastal Ecology and Marine Biotechnology

Dec. 8-10, 2016  Bangkok, Thailand




Authors are invited to submit original scientific papers in English for oral or poster presentation. You are invited to send a maximum 500-word abstract to icbb@apaset.org, including title, authors, affiliations, address and corresponding author (refer to abstract template). Please submit the abstract as an MSWord file.

Presentation Types
- Oral presentation: The speaker will have 20 min (15 min for presentation, 5 min for questions and answers). Speakers are requested to submit a Power Point presentation, if any, one day before the allotted time.
- Poster presentation: Posters will be displayed as a portrait of approximately A0 - 90 cm x 110 cm. Text should be written in English. The content on poster include Abstract, Objective, Methodology, Results, and Conclusion.
While authors should indicate their preference for Oral or Poster presentation, the final decision will rest with the Conference Technical Committee.

Important Date
Abstract Submission deadline: Sep. 30, 2016. Oct. 20, 2016

Submission Guide

1. Editorial Policy: Authors should commit that the submission to the conference is completely original and has not been previously published, nor is it before another conference for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Director). If redundant or duplicate publication or plagiarism is attempted or occurs authors should expect immediate editorial action to be taken including prompt rejection of the submitted manuscript. 
2. Copyright: Copyright License Agreement provided by publisher will be signed when the paper is accepted.
3. Peer-Review: Manuscripts (other than those that are of insufficient quality or unlikely to be competitive enough for publication) will be peer-reviewed by two or more experts in the fields, and a decision will be returned to authors in about one month. If due to special circumstance, the review process takes more time, authors will be informed by email. Possible decisions on a manuscript are: acception, revision (minor or major), rejection.
4. Publication Ethics: We firmly believe that ethical conduct is the most essential virtual of any academic. Hence any act of plagiarism is a totally unacceptable academic misconduct and cannot be tolerated.
