To help you to prepare for your Digital Health Week presentation or ePoster submission, please see the relevant details below.
Oral Abstract Presentations
Presentations are an important part of the event program. In order to showcase the diversity of eHealth and digital health research happening, Digital Health Week 2023 is running a number of streams showcasing a large number of presentations. Specific details of your stream and time will be available in the final program for the event.
Digital Health Week encourages use of the Pecha Kucha presentation style. This presentation style uses 20 slides, allocating 20 seconds to talk to each slide (6 minutes 40 seconds). This particular style has been chosen to encourage, dynamic, progressive storytelling and ensure that all presenters are allocated equal time, and visual aids, for their presentations. After presenting, each speaker will be allocated 2 minutes of question time from the audience.
Note: Pecha Kucha style is not essential – if you have another innovative presentation style, we welcome you to use this also but adhere to the timing of a maximum of 7 minutes.
You will present via Zoom and we will ask you to share your own slides at the time of the presentation so that you can progress through your slides at your preferred pace. We will ask you to submit your presentation slides for us to have a backup copy in case of technical issues on the day.
Due date for final slides submission is COB Wednesday 25 January 2023. Submissions will be done via this Qualtrics form.

ePosters are also an integral part of the event program and will be displayed digitally online two weeks ahead of the conference and for the duration of the conference.
We will also host an ePoster zoom session, where our ePoster presenters are expected to present via Zoom a short (maximum 1 minute), informal summary of their work and interact with other Digital Health Week 2023 attendees.

Due date for ePoster submissions is COB Monday 16 January 2023. All ePosters will need to be submitted via this Qualtrics form.
ePoster Showcase session
ePosters will be showcased as part of an ePoster session on the Wednesday morning, February 8th, 2023. During the showcase, ePoster presenters will have be given the opportunity to participate in a Zoom meeting, provide a 1 minute summary of their research, and meet with Digital Health Week attendees to discuss and answer questions about their research.
All presenters are also encouraged to create a ‘Twitter poster’ to share on social media platforms. This is a great opportunity to showcase the importance of your work visually using simple, succinct points. As part of your involvement in Digital Health Week 2023, if you produce a Twitter poster and share it with us, we will share it widely throughout our networks and on social media. Submissions for Twitter posters can be submitted via a Qualtrics form which to be distributed in follow up communications.
All Twitter posters can be submitted to the organisers via this Qualtrics form.
Prizes will be awarded to both abstract and ePoster presenters.
There are a total of six abstract presenter prizes available for best presentation (five HDR prizes and one Judges Choice prize)
There are three ePoster prizes available:
- Most popular ePoster (based on number of votes received)
- Judges Choice
- Influencer (based on the amount of engagement on Twitter)
Abstract presentations and ePoster showcase sessions will be run online via Zoom meetings. This will allow delegates and speakers to see one another and be able to interact.
We will start sending Zoom links from 27th January 2023. If you don’t receive links by COB on the 3rd February 2023, please email us at email@example.com.
