AMIA 2014 Posters

The specific time and date of all sessions, speakers names and abstracts are available in the Itinerary Planner. It is an excellent tool for building your AMIA 2014 Symposium experience.


Posters are the preferred format for presenting preliminary research results 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 medical informatics.

The poster sessions are a 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 90-minute poster sessions at the symposium. At least one author will be present at the poster session.
