Paper and Abstract Submission

MEC17 is no longer accepting paper submissions. 

Please note the following:

 All papers will be peer-reviewed. Corresponding authors must be willing to review at least two other papers (or designate another in their place).

  1. We are using an online submission system, which will aid us in organizing, reviewing, and publishing accepted manuscripts.
  2. Authors have the choice to submit either an abstract-only or a full-length manuscript. Both types of submissions have the same deadline: March 1, 2017. Accepted full-length manuscripts will be given longer presentation slots (e.g., 12 minutes vs. 8 minutes). Author preference will be considered when determining podium and poster slots, although final decisions are subject to availability.
  3. All submissions are due March 1, 2017. Because we are using a peer-review process, we do not anticipate extending the deadline.
  4. MEC17 will again be held at the Fredericton Delta hotel, in order to accommodate the size of our group.

If you are interested in presenting your work at MEC17 please submit either a 400-word abstract or a full length (2-4 pages) paper by March 1, 2017. Presentations should appeal to a broad audience of clinicians and researchers.
