2016 Call for Abstracts

The 2016 MHSRS Call for Abstracts is closed. Notifications to submitters will be emailed by mid June.

Last year's symposium topped all previous attendance records, and set the bench mark for scientific excellence. The 2016 meeting promises to meet, and surpass, these high standards! The 2016 MHSRS will offer more simultaneous sessions and include new breakout session topics such as Precision Medicine and Women's Health. Due to the popularity of 2015's tract offering, tract presentations in 2016 will be offered in the areas of Infectious Disease, Neurotrauma / Traumatic Brain Injury, Psychological Health, and Injury Prevention.

  3. For site management, information is collected for statistical purposes. This U.S. Government computer system uses software programs to create summary statistics, which are used for such purposes as assessing what information is of most and least interest, determining technical design specifications, and identifying system performance or problem areas. Below is an example of the information collected based on a standard request for a World Wide Web document:
    1. xxx.yyy.com -- [28/Jan/2008:00:00:01 -0500] "GET /Defense/news/nr012708.html HTTP/1.0" 200 16704 Mozilla 3.0/www.google.com

In this case, the requester is coming from the xxx.yyy.net address. Depending on the requester's method of network connection, the host name (or IP address) may or may not identify the user's specific computer. Connections via many Internet Service Providers (ISP) assign different IP addresses for each session, or only connect to the Internet via proxy servers, so the host name may only identify the ISP. The host name (or IP address) may identify a specific computer if that computer has a fixed IP address.

    5. 200 -- this is the status code - 200 is OK - the request was filled
    6. 16704 -- this is the size of the requested file in bytes
    7. Mozilla 3.0 -- this identifies the type of browser software used to access the page, which indicates what design parameters to use in constructing the pages
