Who can submit?
Hospitals are not limited to the number of proposals they may submit. Proposal authors from CHA member hospitals may invite non-members to co-present. The proposal must be submitted by the member. Non-member participation is based on review and must be disclosed during the call for proposals process.
All proposals should be submitted online. Each proposal submitted must contain:
- Presenter information
- A blinded abstract with no hospital names or proper nouns of city, state, county or project name.
The Conference Advisory Committees seek proposals for the following types of presentations:
- Educational Session: 45- or 60-minute concurrent session
- Poster Presentation: Monday at 4 p.m. through Wednesday at 1:30 p.m.
All presenters are required to adhere to all of the conditions outlined in the speaker agreements. If accepted to present, you are required to pay the member presenter fee of $1,100.
Proposal decisions are announced after review and final selection by the Conference Advisory Committee, two months after submission.
