*** CALL FOR POSTERS & DEMOS ***
The poster and demo session is an excellent opportunity to see and discuss upcoming research and
demonstrate an ongoing implementation of a new concept. Submissions of 500 words and a short
title are invited.
*** CALL FOR PhD STUDENTS FOR PhD Track ***
Working on a PhD in Digital Health? Come get invaluable advise from a panel of top academics and practitioners!
The PhD Student Track is designing to provide high quality feedback to doctoral students by offering an
opportunity to students to present their work to a group of mentors and peers. Students currently pursuing a
PhD in a field related to digital health are invited to submit progress reports of up to 2 pages. They should
clearly outline the project, its novelty and significance, and provide at least one result from ongoing work.
*** FORMAT AND OUTPUT ***
Posters and demos will be introduced in an oral session (only a few minutes per authors) and presented in the interactive session on Monday 3rd July 2017 allowing networking and discussions over a glass of wine. PhD Track takes place on Sunday 2nd July 2017 and will include presentation of the research and mentoring in a supportive environment.
Posters, demos, and submitted PhD reports at this call will NOT to be published in the ACM proceedings but featured on the website and in the abstracts book distributed at the conference.
