All proposals must be submitted through the MCM system. Papers that are not submitted through the Microsoft submission system will not be considered for review. All proposals require an abstract and paper, do not just submit an abstract, your proposal will be rejected. Please make sure to upload your paper to MCMS before clicking 'submit.'
