Paper and Poster Submission for MLA '13 in Boston

Dear Colleagues (with apologies for cross posting):

Mark your calendars not only for the 2012 MLA Annual Meeting in Seattle but also for the special international meeting in Boston in 2013. Start thinking of 2013 paper and poster submission ideas now and submit whenever you're ready - the MLA paper and poster submission site opened on November 30, 2011 and will remain open until May 1, 2012.

MLA '13, will take place on May 3-8, 2013, in Boston, and will incorporate the 11th International Congress on Medical Librarianship (ICML), the 7th International Conference of Animal Health Information Specialists (ICAHIS), and the 6th International Clinical Librarians Conference. The Boston meeting will provide a unique opportunity to explore the global interdependency of health information at a federated international meeting. Submission of papers and posters began earlier than usual because of the lead times needed for international participants. 2013 contributed papers and posters submission deadline is May 1, 2012. Final findings and results may be added to the accepted papers and posters up to February 1, 2013, so you don't have to have completed research to submit a paper or abstract.

The 2013 meeting theme is "One World: Information in an Interdependent World," which emphasizes global interdependencies in all health-related areas. "One Health" is meant to encompass not only human and animal health, but also public health, environmental health, climate change, food safety and production, and international health policy.

For access to the online submission process, instructions, and a list of section program themes, see www.mlanet.org/am/am2013/
