The M&M 2017 Paper Submission Site is now open. Please click on the link below to set up an account and submit a paper.
Please Note: We are pleased to offer a new and updated submission platform this year. Even if you have submitted a paper to a previous M&M meeting, you will need to create a new account using a valid email address (account will be verified using that email address) and a password of your choosing.
Please add 'firstname.lastname@example.org' to your safe sender list to ensure that all necessary communications are received.
Once You Create a New Account:
If you just created a new account and now only see an empty Dashboard, go back to the original link you used to reach the CATALYST site and try clicking it again. Some users experience problems when a new submission is not started immediately after creating their account.
If you have already created a submission in CATALYST
After creating your first submission for an event, you can create more submissions from two places:
The two-page scientific paper format is REQUIRED. Additional instructions and templates are available at the links below.
SUBMISSION DEADLINE has been changed. It is now Tuesday, February 21, 11:59 PM (Pacific Time).
Post-Deadline Poster slots may be available. Information will be posted after April 1, 2017.
MSA does not permit any type of recording (photography, video, audio, etc.) of lectures, posters, tutorials, workshops and commercial exhibits at the Microscopy & Microanalysis meeting without prior permission of MSA or the individuals concerned.
The published proceedings for the M&M meeting are 2-page scientific papers (required of all presenters) which are reviewed for content, format and appropriateness. These are able to be referenced, and are published by Cambridge University Press under the meeting's moniker.
This is in marked contrast to other meetings which distribute ABSTRACTS (and only to attendees), the results of which are never heard from again. Key scientific "firsts" are routinely reported in the M&M Proceedings. We highlight new and innovative as well as informational/tutorial/help work. You will be able to find electronic copies of our papers online using the standard publisher DOI; referencing system and requests are routinely found for copies of our short papers. This compendium of work and material with full access is not duplicated anywhere else in the world, and that is why the M&M Annual Meeting is so popular, and why its standards exceed all others.
If there are presentations that need to be cited in published work, MSA releases the copyright (free) for publication of images used in the meeting's Proceedings papers with no problems. The Proceedings papers are published on digital media, online on the Microscopy and Microanalysis (Cambridge University Press) homepage as Supplement 3 to the MAM Journal, and as a hardbound Print-on-Demand option. Most Proceedings papers are on the Web of Science. Medlines usually does not reference the Proceedings papers.
