CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS
Download Abstract sample and format
Undergraduate and early graduate students from across Canada, the United States, and Overseas are invited to submit an abstract for an oral or poster presentation on the history of medicine and health care. The presentations will be 10 to 12 minutes for oral, or 2 to 3 minutes for a poster (with additional discussion time afterwards). The poster display will be up for the entire conference.
The topics for presentation will cover a wide range and include areas such as the Classics, the History of Public Health, Nursing, Veterinary Medicine, Human Biology and Neuroscience, etc. Prizes will be awarded in different categories and all active participants are invited to join us at the Awards Event on the last day of the conference.
Each presenter must offer an original historical research attempt with new methodological perspectives on the topic and/or have a critical discussion following the presentation.
If three to four participants would like to present together on a related topic, this could be done in a panel form. A suitable discussant will then be identified by the conference organizers to comment upon these presentations. We ask, however, that presentations and poster abstracts be submitted by one author only, (please include co-authors in the cc).
Please note: Due to the on-going Pandemic, we may require mask wearing, as opposed to making it a choice. We will closely monitor the Covid-situation as March 2023 approaches.
The Keynote Speaker will be announced. The final topic and title will be advertised with the preliminary conference program early in 2023.
For any further information and to see the call for presentations and other application related materials please go to the website of the Calgary History of Medicine and Health Care Program (https://hom.ucalgary.ca/hmd). The deadline for this CfP is January 15th, 2023. Please send your abstracts and application materials directly to: firstname.lastname@example.org and start your email subject line with HMD 2023.
