2017 Abstract Submissions and Guidelines

Thanks to all who have submitted abstracts for this year’s showcase; we are no longer accepting submissions.

OHDSI collaborators are invited to submit to showcase their work during the OHDSI Symposium Collaborator Showcase on October 18th, 2017.  There are four ways to participate. Multiple submissions are welcome but only one abstract is required per research topic. This means that for each research topic you’d like to present, you only need to submit one abstract and indicate all the mediums which you would like to present in.

  1. Poster: a poster-board to present a static display summary of your latest research.
  2. Software Demonstration: a table with screen/monitor to provide interactive display of open-source analytics.
  3. Video: a 10-minute recorded content, to be run with other accepted videos and posted at ohdsi.org
  4. Lightning talk: a 7-minute podium presentation to verbally share your story with the community.

For accepted software demonstrations, a table and monitor will be provided for you at the symposium. For accepted video submissions, if your video is in your native language, it is suggested that your video contain English subtitles.

Abstracts will be peer-reviewed by the OHDSI Symposium Organizing Committee, and selected for presentation by September 25th, 2017.  Those collaborators will then showcase their work at the OHDSI Symposium on October 18th, 2017.
