Calling for Abstracts for the 6th Virtual International Day of the Midwife Conference

The organising committee for the 6th Virtual International Day of the Midwife Conference (#VIDM2014) are calling for the submission of abstracts for the 2014 conference.

Please see http://vidm.wikispaces.com/ for information.

The conference is a free, 24 hour online spectacular.

Midwives, obstetricians and consumers from all over the world present their point of view/research/experience from their own homes or offices to others, all around the world in their homes or offices.

Each session lasts about 50 minutes. Each presenter has a facilitator, so that anyone can do it.

The webpage provides the following information for those of you who are considering sharing your world with the rest of us:

"While the EOI must be in English, we welcome presentations on the day in other languages. We also welcome EOI from non-midwives and midwifery students. Presenters need not be experienced in using electronic media - each presenter will be allocated a facilitator who will be able to give support at every stage. However, presenters do need to have access to a computer with reliable Internet access, a headset and preferably a webcam. Presenters will also need to commit to attending a practice session so that we are all as assured as we can be, that the technology will work well for you on the day".



This beautiful statue was commissioned for a conference in Europe and photographed by one of the conference participants.  He put the photo on Facebook and gave permission to share it.  I can't find the details, but as soon as I do, I'll put them on here.  In the meantime, enjoy the beauty and the art.
