Call for Participation for AMIA 2018 Informatics Summit

AMIA is pleased to invite submissions for the AMIA 2018 Informatics Summit to be held March 12 – March 15, 2018, at the Parc 55 Hotel in San Francisco, California. The Summit focuses on the breadth of Translational Science from Translational Bioinformatics (TBI) to Clinical Research Informatics (CRI).  Attendees will experience content dedicated to Translational Bioinformatics, Clinical Research Informatics, Informatics Implementation, and Data Science in one integrated conference experience.

The AMIA 2018 Informatics Summit: Translational, Clinical Research, Implementation, and Data Science is a dynamic activity continuously reflecting the changing nature of informatics.  Anchored in its roots of Translational Bioinformatics (TBI) and Clinical Informatics (CRI) on through to the recent addition of the Informatics Implementation track designed to promote learning about tools and resources for translational research, the AMIA 2018 Informatics Summit is a showcase of diverse and thoughtful perspectives.  

The emergence of Data Science is reshaping how informatics researchers and professionals collaborate--and AMIA provides the conference at the intersection of two critical domains.  The AMIA 2018 Informatics Summit embraces contributions from the health data science community.  AMIA believes the power of data is hidden until it is unlocked by the right methods.  Informatics professionals and collaborators within the health data science community can make data actionable improving clinical decisions, patient-care, and human health.

We look forward to receiving submissions that describe the latest innovations and knowledge that you are creating in Translational Bioinformatics, Clinical Research Informatics, Informatics Implementation, and Data Science.  Sessions will be distinctly tagged with one (or more) of our four major themes of the AMIA 2018 Informatics Summit.

Submission Deadline: September 28, 2017, 11:59 p.m. EDT

IMPORTANT! Submissions that do not meet the following requirements may be rejected without review: READ the submission guidelines and follow the sample format (Word, LaTex)

All submissions must be made through the submission site.
