International Conference Attendance - How to Participate, Plan and Prioritize

International conference participation is important for bringing one’s research to the research community and offers an excellent learning and networking opportunity especially for students and first time participants. However, for someone new to the field of nursing informatics and as a student it may be difficult to know what participation entails, and how to prioritize among all the offerings.  Also how to plan before, during and after attending the conference can be a challenge.

AMIA CIS-WG Presents - The Informatics Paper Club of the Air IX

The Informatics Paper Club of the Air presented by the AMIA CIS-WG is a regularly scheduled Paper Club series that will address the gap in knowledge and performance by an ongoing review of literature and by exposing our clinical informaticists to evidence-based approaches and strategies with discussions centered on incorporating those strategies into their practices. 

We are continuing the theme of open notes from the last webinar. The following two papers will be discussed during this webinar:

Biomedical Natural Language Processing for Translational Research

The field of biomedical natural language processing has attracted considerable attention over the course of the past decade and a half.  Progress has been made both in the clinical domain and in the bioscience domain, with many tools and architectures now available.  With the availability of many large resources and knowledge models for the clinical domain, the bioscience domain, and mappings between them, the time is ripe for biomedical natural language processing to make contributions to translational research.  With the goal of improving the accessibility of the bioscience side of the eq

Predictive Big Data Analytics - Imaging-Genetics Fundamentals, Research Challenges, and Opportunities

Translational biomedical research relies on massive amounts of heterogeneous data and demands substantial transdisciplinary expertise to extract valuable information and acquire new knowledge about complex natural process. The Moore’s and Kryder’s laws guarantee exponential increase of computational power and information storage, respectively. These laws also dictate the rapid transdisciplinary advances, technological innovation and effective mechanisms for managing and interrogating Big Data.
