Call for Submissions for the May 16-19, 2017 CHLA/ABSC Annual Conference

The 2017 CHLA/ABSC Planning Committee invites submissions for the Annual Conference of the Canadian Health Libraries Association/Association des bibliothèques de la santé du Canada (CHLA/ABSC), to be held in Edmonton. The theme of the conference is “Northern Illumination/Lumières du Nord.”

The online abstract submission site is now available via the CHLA/ABSC conference website. To be considered, submissions must be received by December 1, 2016, 9:59 pm MST.

Authors are asked to rank how they would prefer to present their work: as a paper, poster, or lightning talk. Abstracts not accepted to a first choice will be considered for second and third choices.

When submitting structured abstracts, authors will note whether their abstract is a research abstract or program description abstract:

  • Research abstracts report on designing, conducting, and analyzing a research project.
  • Program Description abstracts describe the creation and improvement of products, programs, technologies, administrative practices, or services conducted by librarians and information professionals.
