Reminder – Call for Abstracts is now open

February 21, 2019 in Current Update

Thank you for your interest in presenting at the MESC 2019! 

Proposals are sought for one-hour Education Sessions as well as 2.5 hour Workshops. 

2.5 Hour Workshops:

A limited number of workshops will be offered on Monday, August 19th from 3:30 to 6:00 prior to the opening ceremonies of the Conference. The workshops are not just longer presentations; they are intended to be highly interactive. Topics that are more focused on training or deep dives with discussion would be appropriate for Workshops. We are looking for abstracts that require participants to be engaged. Participants will not be charged extra to attend, but will be asked to pre-register.  

One-hour Education Sessions:

These sessions will be offered beginning at 1:00 PM on Tuesday, August 20th through 10:15 AM on Thursday August 21st. Session rooms will hold up to 450 people. 


Priority will be given to Workshop and Education Session Abstracts that are proposed by or that include State government representatives.  We understand that it can be challenging for States to commit to travel this far in advance and their conference participation cannot be guaranteed.  We also understand that some companies who may be new to this environment may not be able to include State representatives. If this is the case, please include that information in the Additional Comments Section of the Workshop or Abstract Submissions. 

Click here for details on the MESC 2019 abstract themes, and to submit your abstract(s).

All abstracts submissions are due by midnight (Eastern) on Friday, March 15th.

Hotel Spam Message

February 15, 2019 in Current Update

Please be aware that a hotel booking agency not affiliated with the MESC is promoting their affiliation with MESC 2019 and seeking to secure your reservations.  Their claim that 99% of the rooms are sold out is incorrect as we have secured a sufficient number of hotel rooms for our attendees. 
We strongly encourage you to use the hotel reservation links provided on our website to secure reservations at the MESC 2019 host hotels, the Marriott Marquis and the Hyatt Regency, to be included within our group.

A graphic from their message is included below so that you will be able to identify this SPAM message.
