The Canadian Association of Midwives Annual Conference will be held October 26th to 28th, 2016 in Victoria, BC.
CAM's Program Planning Committee is inviting Canadian and international speakers to submit abstracts for oral and poster presentations on scientific, clinical and philosophical topics of importance to practicing midwives and maternity care providers, students, educators and health policy makers.
Guidelines for Abstract Submissions
The CAM Scientific Abstract Review Committee will conduct a blind review of all submitted abstracts. The CAM Program Planning Committee will then select abstracts of interest for oral presentations and poster displays in English and/or French. Abstracts may be submitted in either language. Should funding be available, simultaneous translation will be provided for sessions during the conference. For questions or assistance with abstract content, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
This year, in response to feedback from our delegates, we are looking to increase the clinical content of our scientific program. We strongly encourage the submission of clinical content.
Abstracts may be submitted for a 30 minute plenary, 30 minute concurrent, 60 minute concurrent, 10 min CAMtalks, or poster. If you are interested in submitting a proposal for a 60 or 90 minute workshop, please contact email@example.com
CAMtalks are back!
After much success, we are pleased to announce that the CAMtalks format will be available again this year! In case you missed it, CAMtalks is a new format option for presentations at the conference that is based on the TED talks (http://www.ted.com/), where you will have the opportunity to present a practiced talk in10minutes, no longer. This is an exciting opportunity to share forward thinking innovative and creative ideas!
Please take note that:
There are no changes to the other existing presentation formats: 30 min plenary and 30 or 60 min concurrent sessions and poster presentations.
DEADLINE: Abstracts must be submitted no later than April 15th, 2016 at 5:00pm (EST). Abstracts must be submitted using the online survey.
