Medicine 2.0'12 News - March 30th, 2012

Medicine 2.0 - 5th World Congress on Social Media, Mobile Health, and Internet/Web 2.0 in Medicine and Health
Boston, Sept 15-16th, 2012

1. Abstract acceptance notifications
We are starting to send out abstract acceptance notifications - but don't panic if you haven't heard from us yet, we are about 30% done - to go through 350 submissions takes time.
We hope to have all decisions sent out by mid-April.

2. What a program!
To get a sense of the high quality talks and presentations we will have in the program, have a look at already accepted abstracts at
and at the speakers who already registered at !
And this is only one third of it...
(To add yourself to this list of attendees, simply register - if you also authored or coauthored an accepted abstract, you will automatically show up in the speaker list).

3. Help us to review!
Some abstracts still don't have enough reviews - if you indicated your willingness to review, please check pending submissions at
in case our review request emails didn't go through!
Please remember to comment on whether a presentation should be accepted as full oral, short oral (rapid fire) or poster presentation.
Thanks for your help and happy reviewing!

4. Book early (registration, hotel, flight...)
With over 350 submissions we expect to sell out early - please register as soon as possible by logging in at
and clicking the registration link.
Remember that rates are still low and will go up once the final program is posted.
Also, there is a limited number of hotels in the area - make your reservation early! See
If you want to look into flights, plan to arrive on Friday Sept 14th, as we will start around 8am on Sat, Sept 15th. We will end in the later afternoon on Sun, Sept 16th (around 5pm?).

We look forward seeing you in Boston
