HLTH Academic Discoveries


Welcome to HLTH – a new and seminal event to drive change and disruption in the health markets!  Take a quick look then come back to learn more about Academic Discoveries and Innovators’ Alley.

When we set out to create a new premier healthcare event, we sought to ensure that recognition was given to the innovations of academics that specialized in healthcare.  We are excited to announce our newest program at HLTH 2018!

HLTH Academic Discoveries

The HLTH Academic Discoveries program is to help showcase the work of innovators, visionaries and researchers, who are paving the way for the next generation in healthcare.  HLTH is a conference of over 3,000 healthcare attendees from corporate, investor and academic worlds.  Our Innovators’ Alley will bring together the work of great thinkers – with those who can buy, fund, or mentor their work.

This program will help to spotlight the ideas across university campuses that are paving the way for the next generation of healthcare innovators.  Join us at HLTH in our Innovators’ Alley to meet with fellow healthcare innovators, investors and companies, by submitting and displaying a poster or an academic paper.

Of course, if you do not have a paper or poster, but would like to experience a one of a kind conference and visit Innovators’ Alley as a guest you can register using the blue registration link at the top of this page.


Posters:  Submit an abstract (500 words or less) per poster.  Posters selected will have the opportunity to present their poster in HLTH’s Innovators Alley and be eligible for the prize.

Paper Submission:  Papers will be submitted to The International Journal of Innovation Science (IJIS for a HLTH special edition), a fully indexed, peer reviewed journal here.  Papers selected for publication in the special HLTH edition of the IJIS will have the opportunity to present their paper at HLTH 2018 in Innovators’ Alley.  Papers not selected for the IJIS special issue may still be selected for a poster.


In addition to the posters, papers and speaking opportunities, submissions will also be judged across three categories for an award:


  1. Best Student Idea – $5,000 award
  2. Best Professional Idea – $5,000 award
  3. Best Idea of the Show – $10,000 award


Please note, that both poster abstracts and research papers must be submitted by January 31, 2018 to be considered.

All approved submissions to present (whether poster or paper) to HLTH must also purchase a ticket to the 2018 event.  Emails confirming acceptance of a poster or paper, will include registration information at a special rate.

Research papers should be submitted directly to the International Journal of Innovation Sciences and will be double blind reviewed through the standard review process. If you do not already have an ORCID account with ScholarOne Manuscripts, please follow the link above to create an account in order to submit your abstract now, and research paper when it’s ready, (deadline 1/31/18).
