Abstracts due: October 6, 2000
All Stanford students and post-docs are encouraged to submit abstracts for presentation at BCATS 2000. For all presentations, the author must submit an abstract describing their work and be present at the conference. The topic should be related to biomedical computation. There are two categories of submission.
AWARDS will be given for the best talk and three best posters. Presenter of
the best talk will
receive a brand new laptop. Presenters of top posters will receive Palm PDAs.
Poster Session / Software Demonstrations
Scientific talks will be 10 minutes follwed by 5 minutes of questions. Presenters are encouraged to also have a poster (or slide hardcopies mounted as a poster) during the poster session to field further questions. We regret that only a small number of students will be able to talk at the conference. Submissions for talks will be considered for a poster/demo presentation if they are not accepted for talk.
Poster space will be approximately 145 cm (4 ft) high by 110 cm (3 ft) wide. Either easels or flat boards plus pins/adhesive will be provided to display posters.
For software demonstrations, presenters can request table space in addition to presenting a poster. Software demonstrations will be allowed on a space-available basis only and will require that the presenter have a poster describing their work. Software demonstration space will be (by default) approximately half of a 6 foot long table, and power will be provided. Special arrangements must be made for other space requirements. At this time we also expect to provide RJ45 Ethernet access, but please check back (verification of that is still in progress).
Submit Your Abstract
All abstracts must be submitted by October 6, 2000. Abstracts for both scientific talks and posters/software demonstrations are the same format. The text of the abstract should be limited to 4000 characters or less. Figures can also be included with submitted abstracts as a link to your webpage containing the figures. You will need to use your SUNet ID and password to submit online.
Please use this online submission form to submit your abstract.
