• Myoelectric Controls Symposium

    Since 1972, the Institute of Biomedical Engineering at the University of New Brunswick has been hosting the MEC Symposium in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. Since 2002, the Symposium occurs tri-annually, incorporating all aspects of powered upper limb prosthetics. The Symposium is immediately preceded by courses and workshops geared toward clinicians.

    The historical conference proceedings have been made available through the generosity of UNB and the Institute of Biomedical Engineering, through a partnership with Duke University and the Open Prosthetics Project, where a list of proceedings from previous Symposia can be found.

  • Northern Hardwood Conference

    Northern hardwood forests occupy millions of hectares in the eastern United States and Canada, representing one of the most economically important and ecologically diverse forests in eastern North America. Northern hardwood silviculture is diverse and complex as well, and has been the focus of extensive research for over 80 years. Today, managers continue to seek innovative sustainable management solutions to address the expanding challenges facing this forest type, including serious threats such as invasive species, inadequate tree regeneration and shifts in composition, degraded timber quality, herbivory, climate change, nitrogen deposition, and forest fragmentation.

    The 2023 Northern Hardwood Conference (NHC) will give researchers, academia, and forest managers from across the range of northern hardwoods a forum to learn, share, and discuss cutting-edge science and innovative management practices to sustain healthy and productive northern hardwood forests.

  • Transforming Construction with Off-site Methods and Technologies

    Proceedings for UNB's Off-site Construction Research Centre's (OCRC) biennial conference, 'Transforming Construction with Off-Site Methods and Technologies', where we're pushing the boundaries of traditional construction practices and embracing the future of building.

    This specialty conference features presentations of peer-reviewed papers and relevant case studies from the industry, engaging attendees in discussions about new and emerging technologies in the built environment.

  • Wabanaki-Indigenous Wise Teaching Practices Gathering

    We respectfully acknowledge that the University of New Brunswick where the Learning Gathering Series is being delivered, stands on the unsurrendered and unceded traditional Wolastoqey (WOOL-US-TOOK-WAY) land.

    The lands of Wabanaki (WAH-BAH-NAH-KEE) people are recognized in a series of Peace and Friendship Treaties to establish an ongoing relationship of peace, friendship and mutual respect between equal nations.

    The river that runs by our university is known as Wolastoq (WOOL-LUSS-TOOK), along which live Wolastoqiyik (WOOL-US-TOO-GWEEG) – the people of the beautiful and bountiful river. Wolastoq (WOOL-LUSS-TOOK) is also called the St. John River.

    The Wabanaki-Indigenous WISE Teaching Practices Conference was designed to create spaces to learn, share and create culturally grounded teaching practices to support the work in elementary classrooms while protecting Mother Nature from the challenges of climate change.

    We designed this program with the support of the Indigenous Teachers Initiative of the Rideau Hall Foundation, to promote 10.000 new Indigenous teachers in Canada. Our home and place for this initiative is the Wabanaki 

    These Learning Gatherings are designed under the perspective of Relationality, where we all create better conditions for wellness and protection of Mother Nature. It will support elementary teachers' efforts of construction, practice and empowerment of their culturally grounded practices in class. Participants in this series of gatherings during 2024 and 2029 will have the opportunity to learn Indigenous pedagogies to support their processes of living education as Indigenous cultural practices in the classroom.

    Teacher participants will have the possibility to learn, practice, apply, modify/create and share the results of their experiences of grounding on their own culture, and the WISE teachings to better support children while protecting Mother Nature. We privilege the cultural identity of all participants in respect, harmony, diversity and unity.  

    The spirit of sharing and growing of this Learning Gathering series is supported by the Elder Jeannie Bartibogue Kcicihtuwinut, (Elder in Residence). Some practices shared during these learning gatherings are in the direction of the Two-Eyed Seeing Perspective of Elder Albert Marshall, the WABANAKI language and culture approach of Elder Imelda Perley, the pedagogies of harmony and respect of Elder David Perley, and Indigenous mangrove's pedagogies of Juan Rodriguez (Associate Professor at the Faculty of Education and Mi'kmaq-Wolastoqey Centre)

    These learning gatherings include two sections. In the first section, we will empower and work with Indigenous teacher candidates Wabanaki Bachelor of Education to consult Elders, search and build their culturally grounded practices and experiences, promote language, and teaching-learning, and apply those practices at their schools. In our second section, we will open the process to Indigenous First Nation, Inuit and Metis Indigenous teachers where all teachers can share and learn. 

    We hope with this initiative to contribute to empowering Indigenous teachers in their work of grounding culturally in their sacred traditional knowledge and languages, teaching practices to enhance the learning and wellness of children and contributing to the balance of Mother Nature.
