AMIA 2016 Welcome Message from Wanda

AMIA 2016 Annual Symposium is the 40th anniversary of the Symposium. On behalf of the 2016 Scientific Program Committee we want this year to be a homecoming that energizes our new and longtime members, welcomes attendees who haven’t visited the meeting in a few years; and attracts first time attendees to the incredible informatics community AMIA represents.

We are inviting you—informatics researchers, practitioners, professionals, students, trainees, patients, friends, and colleagues—to participate in and attend the AMIA 2016 Annual Symposium. The Call for Participation is open. Deadline: Thursday, March 10, 11:59 p.m. EST

AMIA is multi-disciplinary and interprofessional. We have the best of all worlds when it comes to soliciting and presenting the very best in informatics science and practice. In the rapidly moving world of health and healthcare, informatics innovation is integral to progress. No meeting captures the breadth and depth of informatics better than the AMIA Annual Symposium.

What’s New?

  • Diversified the SPC leadership and named four AMIA 2016 Vice Chairs: Noemie Elhadad, PhD; Mark Frisse, MD, MS, MBA, FACMI; Andrea Hartzler, PhD; and Madhu Reddy, PhD, FACMI
  • Unified the foundations and applications tracks to support work that crosses  those boundaries
  • Appointed additional expert leaders to the SPC to manage the review process for  more than 1200+ expected submissions
  • Updated the keywords to reflect the wide range of submitted content
  • Added option of three keywords per submission to improve the match between the submission topic and the expertise of the reviewers

The Symposium Experience

Sharing scientific discovery and demonstrating best practice and innovation is at the core of the AMIA Symposium experience. But the most unforgettable part of the meeting is the people. Informatics is a specialized field and the Symposium gathers our community of colleagues, peers, mentors, students and leaders for networking and fellowship, collaboration and friendship, and discussion and debate.

See you in Chicago, November 12 - 16. Make your reservations early!
