Here at CMEpalooza headquarters (12-story building, 1,000 employees, 4 full-service restaurants, and free valet parking for all staff, in case you want a mental picture), we’ve been counting down the days.
Thanks to everyone who took the time to brainstorm topics and gather colleagues to submit an abstract for CMEpalooza Spring. There are some really interesting proposals that came in, and both Derek and I are humbled by all of the creativity we are seeing.
Today, we turn things over to you. If you click on the Poll tab, you will see the list of titles and lead presenters at the top, followed by a full description of each proposed session, full faculty, and the marketing pitch. Some are serious, some are silly, some are a little bit of both.
You can vote for up to 5 presentations. You can vote only once per device (so if you have an smartphone, tablet, and laptop, you can vote 3 times).
Voting will stay open for one week, closing at 5 p.m. PT on Monday, Feb. 9. Those abstracts with the most votes get on the Spring agenda. It’s that simple.
It’s hard to say exactly how many abstracts will be included since some submissions were for 30 minute sessions and some for 60 minute sessions, but our guess would be somewhere around 10-12. Once the final vote is done, we’ll sit down and figure it all out before reaching out to those lucky individuals to schedule the specific time for their presentation.
Hopefully by the end of the week (a special Valentine’s Day present for everyone), we’ll be able to announce the official agenda.
Let the voting begin!
