Five reasons to present at Medicine X
Stanford Medicine X features the most innovative and engaging minds in academia and industry engaging in an interdisciplinary discussion to share bold new ideas about the future of medicine and the role technology will play in improving health.
Presenting at Medicine X offers you an opportunity to showcase your work to an international audience comprised of public health officials, venture capitalists, health-care practitioners, researchers, technologists, patients, design experts and business leaders. Additional benefits of speaking at Medicine X include:
- Production of a high-quality video of each presentation, which is made available to the public free of charge through the conference website. Video talks continue to be promoted on the Medicine X social media channels year round.
- Experience presenting your work in one of the most technologically-advanced facilities at a world-class academic institution. Past attendees commented that the conference environment “sets a high bar from a content and user-experience perspective and the attention to detail is outstanding.”
- Exposure beyond the conference audience via the Medicine X Global Access Program, which allows anyone around the world to participate virtually through a high-quality streaming webcast.
- Collaborative networking with inspiring thinkers and doers across the fields of health care, medicine, business and technology via the Medicine X ‘Interact!’ networking platform and conference social events.
- Eligibility for publication in the conference’s official partner journals PLoS ONE and the Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE). These journals have a very wide reach and disseminate the work presented at Medicine X to the broader scientific and medical establishment. The conference pays the $1,350 page fee on behalf of authors when their manuscripts are accepted for publication in the Medicine X virtual collection of these journals. Accepted abstracts will be published in an electronic publication entitled the Stanford Medicine X Proceedings.
Last year’s conference attracted media attention from CNN Health, Forbes.com, The Economist, Elsevier Japan, Time Magazine, Fast Company, Medgadget, Popular Science, Bloomberg News and TechCrunch. During the three-day event, attendees’ tweets reached 1.1 million Twitter users and created 24 million impressions.
There are a number of exciting ways for you to participate in the conference as a presenter. This year we’ve also added an ePatient track to the conference, especially tailored to those interested in participatory medicine, patient engagement and patient-centered outcome research at the intersection of emerging health information technologies. Additional tracks include business, research and practice.
The opportunity to share your work at Medicine X ends on April 5.
