INFORMS Healthcare 2015 invites submissions on research and applications in the healthcare arena.

Review Process: One Oral Presentation per Presenting Author

Submissions for both oral and poster presentations will be reviewed by the Committee. There is a limit of one oral presentation per presenting/lead author. Authors may present a poster as well as one oral presentation.

Two Presentation Formats: Oral and Poster

You must submit an abbreviated abstract (500 characters) and an extended abstract (two-page PDF) clearly outlining the problem, methodology, and contributions.  There are two presentation formats: a talk as part of a session, or a poster/display presentation as part of a poster session. Talks within a session are typically 20-30 minutes in length, with three talks in a session (a session is 90 minutes). Sessions are scheduled from Wednesday through Friday, and the scheduling of your talk is determined by the Organizing Committee. Poster sessions will be scheduled during the day on Wednesday through Friday, with session times to be determined. The presentation day for your poster/display is determined by the Organizing Committee.

Submit Online for Both Formats

Submit an abstract for an oral presentation or poster display using the online submission. Only one submission will be permitted per presenting author.

  • To submit an abstract for an oral presentation you must select up to three keywords in the “Topic Area” to assist the Committee in scheduling your talk.
  • To submit an abstract for a poster display you must select one of the Poster keywords in the “Topic Area.”
