About Medicine 2.0 at Stanford

Medicine 2.0 '11 at Stanford University will contain a mix of traditional
academic/research, practice and business presentations, keynote
presentations, and panel discussions to discuss emerging issues in the
fields of social media, web 2.0 and technology as they relate to medicine,
health care and biomedical sciences. We strive for an interdisciplinary mix
of presenters from different countries and disciplines (e.g. health care,
social sciences, computer science, engineering, or business) and with a
different angle (research, practice, and business).

In addition to our standard oral presentation, poster presentation and
panel discussion formats, we will have two exciting new ways to present
your work at Medicine 2.0 '11 at Stanford.

New Presentation Formats!

There will be five ways to present your work at Medicine 2.0 '11 Stanford.
Let's review all the presentations formats available for you:

1. Poster Presentation
Poster presentations offer an opportunity to share your work with an
international audience interested in Medicine 2.0. If selected, you will
present your work in printed form for display on easels. Presentations will
take place throughout the Congress with special designated times for poster
viewing. First authors should plan to be next to their posters to answer
questions during these times.

2. Oral Presentation
Oral presentations offer an opportunity to provide a powerpoint slide
presentation of your work to a large breakout audience. Presentations are
15 minutes in length, with a five minute question and answer period. Oral
presentations are organized into theme sessions, and each session will have
a designated moderator.

3. Panel Discussion
Panel discussions provide an opportunity to present a wide range of
expert opinions about various topics related to Medicine 2.0. Proposals for
panel discussions should include experts from a diverse range of
Institutions, and should be moderated by a designated first author. Panel
discussions are the preferred method for presenting non-research related

4. DEMO Interactive Session New!
New to Medicine 2.0 at Stanford are DEMO Interactive sessions, which
provide an opportunity to perform a live demonstration of your project to
the Medicine 2.0 audience.

If selected for a DEMO Interactive session, you will be provided with
a large plasma screen display and a video connector to your own laptop.
Internet connectivity will be provided through wi-fi. DEMO Interactive
sessions will take place throughout the Congress during special designated
times. Eligible for Stanford Prize.

5. Pitch for Medicine 2.0 Start-up Forum New!
New to Medicine 2.0 at Stanford are Startup Pitches, presented Pecha
Kucha style (20 slides, changed every 20 seconds, over six minutes). If
selected you will have the opportunity to present your product or idea to a
panel of Silicon Valley business experts, including venture capitalists and
experts on technology licensing. These sessions are intended for
individuals who would like to take their idea or product to the next level,
but need
help in refining their business plans and obtaining funding for their
business ideas. Eligible for Stanford Prize

Enhanced Peer Review:

We believe peer-review is vital to maintaining the highest academic
standards for the Medicine 2.0 '11 Congress at Stanford. Therefore, this
year we are partnering with IMIA (the International Association for Medical
Informatics) Social Media Working Group (SMWG) to provide enhanced peer
review for all submissions to Medicine 2.0 '11 at Stanford. Here's how the
process will work:

1. A new application is submitted to the Congress.

2. Peer-review through Medicine 2.0 Congress reviewers
Applications will be distributed by the SPC to at least three
external peer reviewers who have signed up as reviewers on the Medicine 2.0
website. Currently, there are over 300 individuals enrolled as
peer-reviewers for Medicine 2.0 '11 at Stanford. Anyone may volunteer to
serve as peer-reviewer through the Medicine 2.0 website.

3. Secondary Review through IMIA SMWG Panel New!
Members from IMIA Social Media Working Group will review all three
external reviews and synthesize a single review providing formative and
summative feedback to the author along with recommendations for acceptance,
revision or declining. *Abstracts submitted after the original 3/1/11
deadline may
not undergo IMIA secondary review.

4. Final Review through Stanford SPC
The Stanford Scientific Program Committee track director will then
review all comments and make a final determination based on review of the
application, IMIA scoring and recommendations, and external reviews.

5. All authors will receive an email with a decision and feedback prior
to the Early registration deadline for Medicine 2.0 at Stanford.

New Publication Options:

Medicine 2.0 '11 at Stanford will have new options for publication of the work you present at the Congress. Authors will now have the opportunity to have their work published in a Pubmed-indexed Medicine 2.0 Conference Proceedings publication or a full paper published in the Pubmed-indexed Journal of Medical Internet Research.
