Call for Participation

AMIA 2014 will include a session for high school students participating in educational and research partnerships with Biomedical Informatics programs around the United States. The session will provide an opportunity for high school students to present their research activities. Additional special programming will be arranged for networking with other high school scholars and biomedical informatics researchers. Funds will be available to defray the costs for each selected high school scholar and a teacher from their high school to travel to and attend the AMIA conference.

Students interested in participating in the session should prepare the following materials:

  1. A one page extended abstract describing their research project.
  2. A 7-minute PowerPoint presentation describing their research project.

Submissions are due September 4, 2014.

All submissions will be peer reviewed by a subset of the AMIA 2014 Scientific Program Committee and additional researchers. Decisions on submissions along with peer review comments will be returned to the students no later than September 30, 2014

The supervising mentor must be listed as a co-author on the submission. Selected submissions will be subject to verification of high school student status.
