News for Maui 2014

The Malaga conference was successful and we are looking forward to the next Medicine 2.0 which is only weeks away!
  • We still have space for registrations. To our knowledge, there are also still rooms available in the Sheraton, even though the group rate has expired (inquire about best rates or book your hotel with the flight ticket or via See also Maui Accommodation page.
  • The Schedule for Maui is online. Presenters, please check that your presentation is listed (if not, then perhaps it is because you have not registered yet?)
  • Poster sizes: Note that the poster board size is up to 120 x 115 cm (h x w) for Maui. Actual posters can be smaller as long as they fit on the poster board.
  • The total presentation time for oral presentations (including Q&A) is 15 minutes (full oral) or 7 minutes (for rapid fire), so we recommend not more than 10-15 or 5-7 slides. Some sessions may not be full and have additional time for discussion, which should be used for discussion of all presentations. Prepare your talk in Powerpoint or Apple Keynote and bring them on a USB stick. The presentation computers will be Macs.
  • If you did not book the pre-conference Tutorial you can do this now through Eventbrite - for Maui we offer the 4-hour pre-conference tutorial Analyzing Twitter for Public Health Research
  • We are happy to announce Gary Kreps as new closing speaker for Maui ("Promoting Interactivity, Relational Sensitivity, and Immediacy with Artificial Intelligence").
  • Late breaking abstracts can still be submitted for a special session in Maui/Hawaii Nov 13-14, 2014
  • Volunteers can sign up here - if you travel with somebody who wants to help out, please make him/her sign up as volunteer!
