Asia in Dubai: The Asian Conference on Science, Technology & Medicine

The Asian Conference on Science, Technology & Medicine (ACSTM) is an annual production of the United Arab Emirates' Asian Council of Science Editors (ACSE). On Facebook, ACSE presents itself as "the voice of Asia." The officers and directors of the organization are from Egypt, India, UAE, Croatia, UAE, UK, USA, and Bangladesh. Relevant domains are registered to the Instra Corporation Pty Ltd in Dubai. The website's About Us page explains that "[t]he ACSE is the first and the foremost organization in Asia, that aims to provide a unified and active platform for Asian editors and scholars to understand about their editorial problems, explore solutions and devotedly take up the future challenges to enhance the quality of Asian Scientific and Scholarly publications."

The "photographic memories" page of the ACSTM website indicates that the now-Asian conference used to be the "World Conference on Science, Technology & Medicine." It also mentions that Medwin Publications is involved. (A Medwin journal contacted me as one of the "eminent scientists, who have significant involvement in the advancement of research" in vaccines; in response to my offer of "a paper reporting that I still got some colds after being vaccinated against the flu," Medwin urged me to submit the valuable manuscript.)
