Welcome! What is ACSTAC?

ACSTAC 2014 is organized under the auspices and accreditation of : the Greek Ministry of Education and Religious Affairs, CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research) and EPS (Εuropean Physical Society)

The underlying logic behind ACSTAC (Anatolia College Science & Technology Annual Conference) is the educational simulation of a scientific conference. In other words students function as little scientists since they select a topic, carry out initial research on that topic and then prepare to come to the conference to present their work, as if they were genuine scientists.

At the same time students become involved with the entire workflow of a scientific conference, that is apart from being presenters, students have the opportunity of serving as organizers of the conference and as reviewers of the scientific papers. In this way students don’t only acquire knowledge through the authoring of their paper, but another group of students succeeds in gaining another form of knowledge through the reviewing process.
