Call for Abstracts

We want to hear from you!

Abstracts may describe any research or practice of interest to the medical library community.

Presenters should be prepared to speak between 12-15 minutes. Lightening talks are limited to five minutes, and serve as a way to participate in the conference in a less formal manner than a contributed paper.
Note: contributed papers are oral presentations; a complete text of the paper is not required.

ABSTRACT SUBMISSION extended DEADLINE!

November 15, 2017

We have extended the deadline for papers, lightning talks, and special sessions. We are no longer accepting proposals for posters. You will hear back from us before the early registration deadline on November 15.
