    AMIA 2013 Annual Symposium

AMIA 2013 Call for Late-Breaking Research Abstracts

Deadline: July 31, 2013. No late submissions will be accepted.

We are instituting a new feature for the 2013 Annual Symposium: Late-Breaking Research Abstracts. This category of submission is different from the usual abstract submissions for the Symposium. It is designed specifically to accommodate students and others whose research was not sufficiently far along to meet the regular March deadline. Abstracts will be reviewed to assess scientific quality and to determine suitability for the AMIA Symposium. A limited number of the highest quality abstracts will be accepted for podium presentations at the Symposium. Accepted abstracts will be published in separate proceedings, available in electronic form. Abstracts will not be indexed in Medline, enabling authors to submit their best work that is destined for other journal publications in the future. This format allows for the presentation of research for which the author wishes to reserve publication rights for future consideration.

Late-breaking abstracts may report on research in progress or completed research, but should make a substantive contribution. Authors of accepted abstracts will have up to seven (7) minutes to present their work at the symposium with three (3) minutes for questions and discussion.

The focus of this submission category is new, fresh work that previously has not been submitted for presentation or publication.
Note: Papers, abstracts, or panel proposals previously submitted for the 2013 AMIA Symposium are not acceptable for this submission.

Authors must follow the submission instructions below.

  • Submissions will consist of an abstract (described below) with a Powerpoint file of your presentation. Submissions without the Powerpoint file will not be accepted. The Powerpoint file cannot be changed prior to presentation.
  • An individual may be a first author of only one abstract submitted for consideration in this category.
  • Abstracts must be submitted as a one-page Word or pdf document (8.5 x 11 inches, single-spaced 12-point font, with one-inch margins all around)
  • The abstract must be structured as follows:
    • The names, academic degree(s), affiliations, and locations (city, state, and country, if international) of all authors
    • Introduction and Background
    • Methods
    • Results
    • Discussion and Conclusion
    • References
    • If appropriate, no more than one figure or table, the inclusion of which would not increase the size of the abstract to more than one page.
  • The deadline for submitting a late-breaking research abstract is July 31, 2013. No late submissions will be accepted.
