CISTM18 Proposals

Call for CISTM18 Proposals
Dawn of a New Era in Travel Medicine


Basel, Switzerland & Hybrid Virtual Conference
21-25 May 2023


Submission Form


ISTM's first ever and very successful virtual conference is just behind us and we are now starting to plan for CISTM18 in May 2023. This congress will be hybrid, where attendees can participate virtually or in-person at our meeting in Basel, Switzerland. The theme of CISTM18 is "Dawn of New Era in Travel Medicine." 

Unlike other calls for proposals, the Scientific Program Committee is seeking proposals to help inspire and invigorate program content to ensure a fresh, compelling and engaging conference. The SPC may combine or use part of your suggestion, and we may consider a different presenter. This allows more comprehensive coverage of topics, less duplication between sessions, and more balanced representation. The SPC will contact all invited speakers for a particular topic proposal.

Through 31 December 2021, we are inviting ISTM Members to submit proposals for sessions. Topics should reflect the latest advances in clinical science and should emphasize areas that have had developments since CISTM17. Only proposals submitted in the solicitation period and on the online Program Proposal Submission Form will be considered. When submitting proposals, please be sure that there is a reasonable degree of gender and geographic balance among the propsed speakers for each session.  

Thank you for your time and contributions to CISTM18 and the worldwide travel medicine community.

Kind regards,
