Posters & Demos Track

Deadline for submission to this track: Sunday 25th May 2019

Notification of outcome to authors: Monday 22nd July 2019


The DPH 2019 conference review panel welcomes submissions from colleagues across professions and sectors with an interest in digital public health. Presenting a Poster or a Demo at DPH can provide a more intimate and informal discussion forum than the traditional oral presentation. Located in the main DPH 2019 Exhibition area for the duration of the conference, Poster and Demo presentations benefit from exposure to both DPH and European Public Health conference audiences in addition to a dedicated Poster and Demo session held as part of the main DPH 2019 programme. The quality of the programme depends on your submissions and we thank you for choosing this conference to present and share your work. 

How to submit

All submissions to this track must be made via the online system. You will be prompted to create an ‘EasyChair’ account on your first visit if you do not already have one. Submissions must be submitted in the required format. Please refer to DPH submission guidance.

Review process

Submissions will be reviewed by the DPH 2019 review panel and authors will be notified of the outcome by Monday 22nd July.

Inclusion in proceedings and programme

Poster and Demo presenters will be allocated a space in the DPH 2019 Exhibition area in which to display their work. Presenters will also be allocated a 2-minute ‘Flash Talk’, scheduled as a session during the main conference programming, in which to rapidly summarise their work and encourage the DPH audience to visit their Poster / Demo. Flash Talks will be grouped according to similar topics and/or methodologies. Presenters will be required to stand by their Poster / Demo during the allocated Poster and Demo reception to answer questions from the conference audience. All conference delegates (DPH and those attending the main European Public Health conference) will have opportunity to view Posters and Demos for the duration of the conference. Successful submissions will be invited to prepare and submit a digital version of their Poster / Demo for publication on the DPH 2019 website*. 

Important information

It is the authors’ responsibility to ensure that their submission adheres strictly to the required format and complies with DPH publication policies. Submissions that do not comply with the guidelines may be rejected without review. All presenters are expected to register and pay for the conference at the appropriate rate.

*Please note: Successful submissions to the Posters & Demos Track will not be published in the ACM Digital Public Health 2019 proceedings but will be published on the DPH 2019 website.
