HIMSS16 Poster Presentation - Call for Proposals

HIMSS Emerging Professionals Call for Proposals Poster Presentation Submission at HIMSS16 Annual Conference and Exhibition

HIMSS invites you to submit a proposal to present a poster session at the 2016 Annual HIMSS Conference & Exhibition at Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. The conference will be held February 29 – March 4, 2016.

The Call for Proposals for a Poster Presentation will open on Monday, June 22, 2015 and close on Friday, July 26, 2015 at 5:00 pm Central Time.  Late proposals will not be accepted.

What is a Poster Session?

Poster sessions are designed in the vein of storyboards, using graphics, charts and other eye-catching information posted on a 4’ x 8’ bulletin board to provide attendees with a more visual means to learn about useful tools and successful case studies.

A poster session is a graphic presentation of project findings that displays graphs, charts, figures, photos, or tables, and a small amount of text on a poster board (like a storyboard). The participant is invited to prepare and post a visual summary of facts, experiences or opinions for viewing by conference attendees.  The posters will be grouped together in exhibition-style rows.

The poster format allows one presenter an opportunity to speak in a more informal environment, standing next to your poster, speaking to smaller groups of people. The interaction is more personalized to the questions of the attendee/reader.

Poster session topics will include:

  • Clinical Decision Support, Public Health, and Population Health
  • IT Interoperability, Standards, Infrastructure, Operations and Architecture
  • Care Coordination
  • Process Improvement, Workflow, Change Management
  • Electronic Health Records
