Send all technical system and platform demonstration proposals to MCBKemail@example.com by FRIDAY, JUNE 18, 2021 @ 5:00 p.m. EDT.

The MCBK 2021 Technical demonstration presentations will be done via a virtual format. A decision on technical posters 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 July 20.
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 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. 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 pre-recorded 1-minute “lightning session”, on July 20, 2021. The technical poster should be represented in a google slide (format will be sent after acceptance) 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 an extended virtual technical poster presentation session on July 20, 2021. The presenter will further showcase their demonstration, answer questions and discuss the work with interested meeting attendees in a virtual expo booth. Each presentation in the breakout session will last for approximately 20 minutes.
3. The technical poster presenter does not have to be the first author but must be familiar enough with the work to have an informal conversation and answer questions from attendees during the extended expo booth session. 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 technical poster presenters will receive clear instructions regarding the logistics for the lightning round and the extended presentation session.
