Panel submissions are limited to three pages and must conform to the MEDINFO 2015 panel format.

 

Poster: A poster illustrates pilot research, research in progress, or the design of a system or process, with a clear statement of the degree of innovation. Each poster must be submitted as a one-page abstract and must conform to the MEDINFO 2015 poster format. Accepted abstracts will be presented as posters at the conference.

 

Software Applications’ Demonstration: A demonstration highlights an innovative, non-commercial system resulting from research or private-public efforts. A demonstration proposal should clearly describe the system/process to be demonstrated and provide a clear statement of the innovation. Each demonstration proposal must be no more than three pages in length and must conform to the MEDINFO 2015 demonstration proposal format. Accepted proposals will be presented through the conference exhibition.

 

Tutorial: A tutorial is an education session that introduces a specific topic in  biomedical and health informatics. A tutorial usually involves 1 or 2 180-minute sessions, with 1-3 instructors. A tutorial proposal should list the instructors’ affiliations, the target audience, pre-requisite knowledge, a set of learning objectives and expected outcomes, a summary of the topics to be covered, and the interactive strategies to engage the audience. Each tutorial proposal must be no more than three pages in length and must conform to the MEDINFO 2015 tutorial proposal format. Note that Tutorials will be held in the Pre-Conference Day (15 December 2015) with additional registration fee.

 

Workshop: A hands-on workshop is an informative or interactive session that addresses a specific theme or topic in biomedical and health informatics. A workshop involves 1 or 2 90-minute sessions, with 4-5 main speakers who introduce the main topics and other active participants. A workshop proposal should list the main speakers affiliations, the target participants, a summary of the topics to be covered, and the proposed activities and expected outcomes, e.g., oral presentations, posters, and break-out sessions, etc. Each workshop proposal must be no more than three pages in length and must conform to the MEDINFO 2015 workshop proposal format. Note that Workshops will be held in the Pre-Conference Day (15 December 2015) with additional registration fee.
