Are you ready to get zombified? Join us for a totally re-envisioned academic meeting, featuring zombies, the apocalypse and monsters of all kinds. The second Zombie Apocalypse Medicine Meeting (October 15-18, 2020) is not your typical conference; we will be streaming high-production value shows on the newly created Channel Zed (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_iFEaXMGGDg&feature=emb_logo), which will be interspersed with academic talks and other zombie apocalypse related content.

If you research any of the following, across any discipline, submit an abstract for ZAMM/Channel Zed:

-Apocalypse (General)
-Zombie Behavior
-Sex in the Apocalypse
-Techistential Risk
-Assembling Your Z-team
-Artificial Intelligence
-Zombie Medicine
-Economic Fallout
-Viral Contagion
-The Ins and Outs of Quarantine
-Undead Culture
-Fear, Panic, Morbid Curiosity and other Apocalyptic Emotions
-Anything else related to zombies as a metaphor or actual zombification!


Submit an abstract (300 words or fewer) to give a regular talk (10 minutes long) or a bite-size talk (90 seconds). If your abstract is accepted, you will be asked to submit a video of your talk. These videos will then appear in sessions that will be streamed during the meeting, or in some cases, within the Channel Zed shows as short segments.You can submit your talk as an individual talk or as part of an organized session with other presenters. Organized sessions can have from 3-5 presentations within them.

Submiy on all topics related to the apocalypse, zombies and/or other monsters will be considered. This year's theme is Sex & Tech, so we encourage submission on these topics, but welcome all submissions.

The deadline for abstract submission is August 15th. You will be notified by August 21st if your abstract is accepted.

You can learn more at our ZAMM (www.zombiemed.org) and Channel Zed (www.channelzed.org) websites. For questions, email cbaciu@asu.edu or tweet @ZAMApocalypse.
