PSB 2023 Seminar
Research efforts and considerations for expanding access
Data from digital health technologies (DHT), including wearable sensors like Apple Watch, Whoop, Oura Ring and Fitbit, are increasingly being used in biomedical research. In an effort to expand and democratize academic research from wearable sensors and related digital health technologies, we solicit novel research results leveraging DHT, describing novel analytical methods, and issues related to diversity, equity, inclusion (DEI) of both the underlying research data sets and the community of researchers working in this area.
This Session solicits research results leveraging digital health technologies, including wearable sensor data, describing novel analytical methods, and issues related to diversity, equity, inclusion (DEI) of both the underlying research data sets and the community of researchers working in this area. We particularly encourage submissions describing opportunities for expanding and democratizing academic research using data from wearable sensors and related digital health technologies. Some specific topics may include (but are not restricted to):
The submitted papers are fully reviewed and accepted on a competitive basis.
Paper Format and Submission Portal
Please see the PSB paper format template and instructions at http://psb.stanford.edu/psb-online/psb-submit.
Unlike the abstracts at most biology conferences, papers in the PSB proceedings are archival, rigorously peer-reviewed publications. PSB publications are Open Access and linked directly from MEDLINE/PubMed and Google Scholar for wide accessibility. They should be thought of as short journal articles that may be cited on CVs and grant reports.
Travel Fellowships for Trainees
PSB traditionally provides fellowships for select trainees. The application process opens upon paper acceptance. Individuals from underrepresented communities are particularly encouraged to participate in the conference and apply for travel support.
Poster Format and Submission Portal
Poster presenters will be provided with an easel and a poster board 32"W x 40"H (80x100cm). One poster from each paid participant is permitted. See the submission portal web site for the instructions regarding poster submissions.
