Statement of the Problem or Question
Relevance to SINI Theme and Tracks
Due to the abstract deadline being extended until March 16, the primary presenter will receive email notification of the review committee's decision on or around April 6, 2015. The primary presenter is expected to relay this information to all co-authors. Winners of Outstanding Abstract awards will be notified at this time.
Your commitment to present and a completed registration form for the primary presenter must be received on or before Saturday, May 2, 2015. Failure to register by this deadline will constitute a decline to present.
Presenters are expected to register to attend SINI, at least on the day of their presentation, and to pay their own expenses. Primary presenters selected for and committed to a presentation will receive a discounted registration rate of $345 for the entire conference. Primary presenters of the Outstanding Podium and Poster Abstract awards receive complimentary registration for all of SINI.
Podium Presentations (for Track B only)
Two podium presentations are scheduled per hour. Each speaker should allocate 20 to 25 minutes for their presentation and allow an additional 5 to 10 minutes for Q & A. The total may not exceed 30 minutes. A moderator will ensure that presenters do not exceed the allotted time.
Poster Presentations (for all tracks)
Poster presenters may set up their posters between 7:30 and 8:15 a.m. Wednesday, July 22, using the stands provided. Stands will be numbered, and you will be told which stand has been assigned to you. The poster corkboard dimensions are 48 inches wide and 36 inches high. Posters should be printed on paper or other material that can be attached to the corkboard by push pins, which will be provided.
The poster sessions will take place Wednesday, July 22, from 8:30 to 9:15 a.m. and Thursday, July 23, from 3:30-5 p.m. Presenters should be stationed at their posters throughout these times and plan to remove the posters immediately after the presentation on Thursday.
Four abstracts will be chosen by the review committee to receive complimentary registrations for their respective primary presenter. Complimentary registration includes all sessions of SINI ̶ the continental breakfasts, welcome luncheon, exhibitor luncheon, poster sessions, and the 25th Anniversary Celebration. Winners will be recognized on stage during the conference and their names will appear in the SINI program. In addition, winners will be given the opportunity to have their abstracts published in the journal CIN: Computers Informatics Nursing.
The research abstract judged to offer the greatest contribution to the science of nursing informatics will receive the Sharon Coleman Memorial Award.
The practice abstract judged to represent the most exemplary practice in nursing informatics will receive the Nursing Informatics Practice Award.
One abstract for a research poster and one abstract for a practice poster will receive an Outstanding Poster Award. The primary presenter of each winning poster will receive a complimentary registration for SINI 2015.
