Updated 03-18-13: The deadline for submitting abstracts for the Stanford Medicine X 2013 conference has been extended to April 15 as the organizers continue to develop the program.
Stanford Medicine X, which explores how emerging technologies will advance the practice of medicine, improve health and empower patients, returns to campus this September. Conference organizers recently issued a call for presenters and papers and are accepting submissions until March 15.
This year, the conference includes an ePatient track focused on issues related to participatory medicine and the role of technology in empowering patient engagement in their own healthcare. Additional tracks include business, research and practice. Submissions are being accepted on the Medicine X website.
Presentations submitted in the research track are eligible for publication in the conference's partner journals, PLoS ONE and the Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE). Accepted abstracts will be published in an electronic publication entitled the Stanford Medicine X Proceedings.
Last year's event attracted nearly 450 attendees from 30 countries. The event's video archive offers a sampling of the keynote speeches and presentations from the 2012 program.
