Papers

The 2nd Heat on Human Health Symposium 2023 invites submissions of papers from all areas related to heat and health, with a particular focus on topics aligned with the content themes. Authors of accepted papers will have 18 minutes for their presentation, which includes a question-and-answer period.

Submissions must be submitted as a two-page (including all tables, figures, references, and acknowledgments) (U.S. Letter; 8.5 x 11 inch) document and include:

  • The names, academic degree(s), affiliations, and locations (city, state, and country, if international) of all authors;

  • A structured abstract must be submitted that includes the following sections:

    • Introduction – A short background and objective(s) of the study;

    • Methods – Design, setting (if appropriate), patients or participants (if appropriate), interventions (if appropriate), and main outcome measurement;

    • Results – Key findings;

    • Discussion – Key Conclusions with direct reference to the foundational advancement or biomedical application of the work;

    • Optional illustrations (figures or tables);

    • References.

In addition, all paper abstract submissions must have a brief (50-75 words) abstract. The abstract paragraph does NOT have to be part of the document but must be entered on the submission website in the Abstract box on the online submission form.

Posters

Posters are the preferred format for presenting preliminary research or results of small-scale studies, illustrating and discussing innovative systems and services, describing experimental and in-practice projects and programs, reporting experiences with educational programs, and other dimensions of heat and health. The poster sessions have been an increasingly vibrant and popular component of the symposium, offering direct access to the authors in a way not possible through podium presentations. Each accepted poster is displayed during one of the 60-minute poster sessions at the symposium. At least one author must be present at the poster session. Posters will not be indexed in MEDLINE.

 

Posters must reflect new work and not reflect work that is in the press or previously published elsewhere.

 

Your uploaded poster manuscript file must be submitted as a one-page (including all tables, figures, references, and acknowledgments) (U.S. Letter; 8.5 x 11 inch) document and include:

  • The names, academic degree(s), affiliations, and locations (city, state, and country, if international) of all authors;

  • A description of the problem addressed and specific purposes of the system, service, or project; or, in the case of original research, an overview of the methodology, evaluation results, and conclusions;

  • Optional illustrations (figures or tables), which must fit within the one-page limit;

  • References, if applicable.

 

All poster submissions must have a brief (50-75 words) abstract. The abstract paragraph does NOT have to be part of the document but must be entered on the submission website in the Abstract box on the online submission form.
