GENERAL INFORMATION

When and where is CHC19?

  • Connected Health Conference 2019 (CHC19) will be held at the Boston Seaport Hotel and World Trade Center on October 16-18, 2019.

Who hosts CHC19?

  • Personal Connected Health Alliance, a HIMSS Innovation Company, and Partners Connected Health have joined forces to curate the 3-day Connected Health Conference, highlighting the actionable information and experienced visionaries committed to advancing the methods of integrated care delivery and designing the tools to improve the future of care.

POSTER SESSION

What is the CHC19 Poster Session?

  • The CHC19 Poster Session is hosted by PCHAlliance, Partners Connected Health, Partners HealthCare Pivot Labs and JMIR Publications. Accepted posters that share methodologies and findings from connected health-related research will be on display during the Conference. Specific times are set aside on the Conference agenda for poster presentations. We expect that ~65 posters will be presented at CHC19.

When are the poster presentation sessions held?

  • Posters will be on display in the exhibit hall throughout the Conference with presentations taking place Wednesday, October 16, from 2:30-4:30 PM, and Thursday, October 17, from 10:40 AM to 12:40 PM. Presenting authors are expected to be at their posters during these times to discuss the posters with Conference attendees.

What should the poster presenting author prepare for?

  • The presenting author will be expected to stand by his/her poster to answer questions and provide explanations during the session times. Presenters may want to prepare a 1-2-minute synopsis of the research to share with CHC19 attendees.

When will I be notified whether my poster has been accepted?

  • An independent peer-review panel will review abstracts. Accepted presenters will be notified no later than August 9, 2019.

What do I get for presenting a poster?

  • The presenting author will receive one free registration to the Conference. Poster authors should plan to present their posters during the designated times.

POSTER DISPLAY DETAILS

What are the maximum dimensions for my poster?

  • Maximum dimensions are 94.375"x wide by 46.25" high. A measurement drawing is attached.

How big are the poster boards?

  • Poster boards are 99” wide and 79” high (from floor to top; legs are 31” high). (See picture below.) They are double-sided. 

Should my poster be black and white, or colored?

  • You will choose the layout and design of your poster. One recommendation is that you use at least one color to add visual interest. 

Where do I print my poster?

  • CHC19 does not have printing facilities.  Wherever you decide to get it printed, please print it prior to your arrival in Boston.

How will the posters be hung?

  • Pushpins will be provided at the Seaport World Trade Center for you to use to hang your poster. Please be aware that poster board is too heavy to affix to the boards; try to use paper (which can be laminated) to minimize the weight.

When will I need to hang my poster?

  • The exhibit hall will be open during the morning of October 16 to allow poster presenters to hang their posters. Please ensure that your poster is in place no later than 5:00 PM. 

Do I personally have to hang my poster?

  • Presenting authors should plan to hang their posters, but can ask a colleague to do so for them if that works out better logistically. 

Can I mail or ship my poster to CHC19 so I don’t have to carry it on the plane?

  • Yes. Posters should be sent to arrive on October 15 or later. Posters that arrive earlier may be discarded. Use the shipping label available for download here. The CHC19 staff are not responsible for any lost or late-arriving poster packages. Any posters that are received by the hotel will be delivered to the poster area.
