News for Maui 2014

(updated Nov 7, 2104) The Malaga conference was successful and we are looking forward to the next Medicine 2.0 which is only weeks away!
  • The full Program is now available as PDF and the schedule for Maui is online. Presenters: Please check that your presentation is listed in the PDF (if not, contact us, and also, if you need to cancel your presentation, please let us know so we can remove your presentation from the program).
  • NEW: Farewell sunset and reviewer appreciation dinner on Friday 6pm sign up here
  • Thursday 13th, 5:30pm: Free reception
    included for all participants, guest tickets can be ordered here
  • We still have space for registrations. The Sheraton is fully booked for the conference dates, but there is space available in the Westin Maui and other nearby hotels. See also Maui Accommodation page.
  • 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 are presenting, we recommend to come to the registration desk on Wednesday between 5-7pm (near the Wailuku ballroom) and copy your presentation on our presentation computers and check the presentation.
  • 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!
