AMIA 2017 Keywords

The field of research and practice in biomedical informatics is as broad as the field of biomedicine and health care. Therefore, to facilitate the overall review process as well as support clustering of accepted submissions into meaningful sets, authors will be required to provide at least one keyword from the below list and up to five additional keywords that they feel best characterizes their work. Authors are strongly encouraged to provide MeSH descriptors for these additional keywords; however, for topics that are not characterized in MeSH, author-suggested keywords will be accepted.
