    2013 Summit on Translational Bioinformatics

Call for Papers for 2013 Summit on Translational Bioinformatics

The American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) is pleased to invite submissions for the 2013 Summit on Translational Bioinformatics (TBI), to be held March 18-20, 2013 at the Parc 55 Hotel San Francisco, CA. The Summit will be part of the Joint Summits on Translational Informatics and will be immediately followed by the Summit on Clinical Research Informatics (CRI) at the same venue March 20-22.

Through Papers, Podium Presentations, Panels and Posters, the 2013 TBI Summit will showcase the latest advances in bioinformatics methodology, their application in research, and, increasingly, in actual clinical care.

With an emphasis on cutting edge and late breaking developments, we anticipate that the TBI Summit will continue to be the premier venue for showcasing the latest informatics research at the dynamic interface of biomedical research and patient care. We look forward to your submissions and to a rich program of cutting-edge, innovative approaches in the field of Translational Bioinformatics.



Learning Objectives

The objectives of the AMIA 2013 Summit on Translational Bioinformatics are to:

  • Present the latest progress on the development and application of informatics approaches to improve translational biomedical research
  • Demonstrate how bioinformatics can enhance clinical research, personalized medicine, and healthcare delivery
  • Identify the current challenges of translational bioinformatics, articulate opportunities, and to define the future directions
  • Identify areas of interaction among computational biology, genomics research, statistical genetics, electronic health records, health information exchanges, and public health
  • Improve understanding of the context in which translational bioinformatics initiatives are developed, deployed and assessed
  • Share research-related issues among the nationwide initiatives on translational research informatics, such as CTSAs, NCBCs, caBIG, etc.
