Table coming before appendix despite being placed in appendix section [duplicate]

I am looking to have a table as the first item in my appendix but when the file is built the table is coming above the appendix.

So it builds as:

Table

Appendix Title

Appendix A

Where I want:

Appendix Title

Appendix A

Table

My code:

\section*{Appendix}
\appendix
\section{Dissemination Opportunities}
\begin{table}
\caption{Conferences}
\begin{tabular}{|p{17cm}|}
\hline
AMBIENT - The Fourth International Conference on Ambient Computing, Applications, Services and Technologies. \\
\hline
BHI - International Conference on Biomedical and Health Informatics. \\
\hline
CBMS - International Symposium on Computer Based Medical Systems. \\
\hline
Pervasive Health - International Conference on Pervasive Computing Technologies for Healthcare. \\
\hline
\end{tabular}
\end{table}

• Do you really want the tabular material to float? Put the material in a minipage along with \captionof{figure}{Conferences} provided py the capt-of package (or caption package or any KOMA-script class). – Johannes_B Jan 7 '14 at 11:11
• Setting \begin{table}[b] would be useful if you need a float. – Johannes_B Jan 7 '14 at 11:12
To solve this I had to add [h] to my \begin{table}, like this:
\begin{table}[h]
