PROJECT POSTERS REQUIREMENTS

Due to the COVID-19 situation the MCBK 2020 Poster presentations will be done via a virtual format. All poster submissions should be sent to: MCBK-info@umich.edu by 5pm on June 12, 2020.

Poster submissions will be accepted on a rolling admission timeline, and authors will be notified via email as to whether their poster will be included in the session. At least one poster author must register to attend the MCBK virtual meeting as a presenter in an on-line 'lightning session,' followed by a longer question and answer social hour breakout session. Once you receive a poster acceptance email you will be given access to an online document where you can upload a lightning slide that summarizes your poster.


I. Overview of MCBK Meeting Poster Session

The poster session will feature two parts:

  1. One registered presenter will participate in a 1-minute “lightning session”, on June 30, 2020. The poster should be represented in a lightning slide that shares the poster content in an easily readable way. An email address for the presenter(s) and a hyperlink to a pdf version of the poster should be included on the lightning slide.
  2. Poster presenters will participate in a zoom breakout social hour on June 30, 2020, where the presenter will answer questions and discuss the work with interested meeting attendees.

The poster session presenter does not have to be the first author but must be familiar enough with the work described on the poster to have an informal conversation with attendees during the breakout session. they should be able to answer questions. This is an opportunity to have stimulating conversations about your work with a variety of stakeholders who are interested in MCBK.

In advance of the meeting, all accepted poster presenters will receive clear instructions regarding the logistics for the poster session.


II. Required Poster Proposal Information – the following information must be included with your poster proposal submission.

General Information about the Poster

a) Title of Poster

b) Classification - All persons who are submitting poster proposal(s) should indicate from among several possible classifications, the one that most accurately characterizes the predominant thrust of the poster content. These categories will be used to assist conference planners in grouping related posters, and, in assisting attendees with their selection of posters they want to be sure to see. The definitions of each category are provided below:

  • Types of Computable Biomedical Knowledge (CBK): Content that focuses on different types of CBK. Examples might include statistical models, computable guidelines, deeplearning models, etc.
  • Policy, Trust and Privacy: Content that focuses on policy, trust, privacy and security aspects of CBK. Examples might include research, projects, or other initiatives related to transparency, reliability, reproducibility and consistency of CBK.
  • Standards and Metadata: Content that focuses on existing standards that could be applied to CBK or, identifying metadata for purposes of annotating CBK. Examples might include metadata that makes CBK more findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable.
  • Systems, Platforms, Tools and Services: Content that focuses on one or more aspects of a CBK system, or platform, that is in use, under development, or at a testing or prototype stage. Examples might include platforms that solve a particular health problem, or, one that is important to a particular domain, stakeholder group, etc.
  • Scenarios and Use Cases: Content that focuses on describing and analyzing the development, substance, and/or response to specific situations and programs. Examples might include illustrations of real-life CBK scenarios within various domains including Education, Research, Clinical Care, Public Health, etc.
  • Credentialing, authorship, curation and publishing: Content that focuses on the knowledge management aspects of CBK. Examples might include roles and responsibilities related to curation and publishing of CBK artifacts.
  • Infrastructure: Content that focuses on those things that are necessary to move CBK from generation into practice. Examples might include ways of facilitating the testing, versioning, use, evaluation, scalability, interoperability, and dissemination of CBK.
  • Curricular/Pedagogical/Training: Content that focuses on the development and substance of specific course content in either required or optional courses, as well as in both credit and non-credit formats that focus on MCBK issues. Examples might include curriculum that is specific to the implications and importance of making Biomedical Knowledge, computable.
  • Other Dimensions of CBK: Any content that focuses on areas not described above.

c) Author(s) Information

Please include the names, city/state, credentials, e-mail addresses and institution/company for every author. You must submit this information along with your poster abstract.

d) Poster Description

Provide a poster description/abstract of 200 words or less that clearly describes your proposal. If your proposal is selected for presentation, this description will be used on the conference website and in the conference program. The poster abstract must contain a statement that begins with "This poster presentation is particularly relevant to...." This sentence should be completed in such a way as to help conference participants with

  • Different interests, and
  • Knowledge/experience levels to better determine the scope and level of the poster

TECHNICAL POSTERS REQUIREMENTS

Due to the COVID-19 situation the MCBK 2020 Technical demonstration presentations will be done via a virtual format. Send all technical system and platform demonstration proposals to MCBK- info@umich.edu by Friday, June 12, 2020 at 5pm EDT.

A decision on project poster proposals will be sent via e-mail to the submitting author. At least one presenter must register to attend and be available to present virtually on June 30.


I. Overview of Technical Poster Session

All those working with CBK are invited to submit an original proposal to demonstrate live software that illustrates one or more aspects of a working CBK system, or platform. The proposed demo must be capable of being presented via the Zoom videoconferencing software online and show a system that is in use, under development, or at a testing or prototype stage. Demonstrations at MCBK 2020 should highlight first-hand experience and lessons learned from developing research prototypes or operational systems. Because of the change in the meeting's format, only a limited number of systems and platforms will be selected. Priority will be given to systems and platforms that demonstrate applicability to a wide scope of health topics and have the potential to scale for use at multiple sites and organizations.

  1. One registered presenter will participate in a 1-minute “lightning session”, on June 30, 2020. The technical poster should be represented in a lightning slide that shares the content in an easily readable way. An email address for the presenter(s) and a hyperlink to an online demonstration of the technical poster, should be included on the lightning slide. In advance of the meeting, those selected to demonstrate their CBK systems will receive further instructions.
  2. Project poster presenters will also participate in a zoom breakout social hour, where the presenter will further showcase their demonstration, answer questions and discuss the work with interested meeting attendees. Each presentation in the breakout session will last for approximately 15-20 minutes.
