2014 Joint Summits Call for Late-Breaking Research Abstracts

All proposals must be submitted by December 31, 2013.

Papers, abstracts, or panel proposals previously submitted for the 2014 AMIA Joints Summits are not acceptable for this submission.

The American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) is pleased to invite late-breaking submissions for the 2014 Joint Summits on Translation Science – the Summit on Translational Bioinformatics (TBI) and the Summit on Clinical Research Informatics, to be held April 7-11, 2014 at the Parc 55 Hotel in San Francisco, California.

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 bioinformatics 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.

Late-Breaking research abstracts are different from the usual abstract submissions for the Symposium. A limited number of the highest quality abstracts will be accepted for podium presentations at the Symposium. We also allow submission of high-impact, recently accepted or in revision papers to be submitted for Podium presentations.  Abstracts will not be indexed in Medline, enabling authors to submit their best work that is destined for other journal publications in the future.  Abstracts not competitive for podium presentations will be eligible for poster presentations.
Note: Papers, abstracts, or panel proposals previously submitted for the 2014 AMIA Joints Summits are not acceptable for this submission.

Categories of submission

Highlights Tracks – Recently accepted, high profile papers in Translational Science

We welcome a limited number of high profile in-press and recently accepted papers (publication dates April 1, 2013 or beyond) in translational bioinformatics or clinical research informatics for podium presentations.  Users should upload the abstract and a copy of the paper.  Abstracts will not be published in PubMed or elsewhere.  Pre-publication papers will be viewed only by SPC members and kept confidential.

Podium Abstract Submissions

The abstract presentation is the classical vehicle for clinical and biological conference presentations, and is provided to allow for the presentation of important results that are not yet published or in development. Abstracts describing preliminary research results or results of small-scale studies, illustrating and discussing innovative bioinformatics techniques, genomic or pharmacogenomic analyses, drug discovery or repurposing, informatics systems and services, or other topics relevant to translational informatics are encouraged.


Submissions will consist of an abstract (described below). An individual may be a first author of only one abstract submitted for consideration in this category. Abstracts must be submitted as a one-page Word or PDF document (8.5 x 11 inches, single-spaced 12-point font, with one-inch margins all around)

The abstract must be structured as follows:

  • The names, academic degree(s), affiliations, and locations (city, state, and country, if international) of all authors
  • Introduction and Background
  • Methods
  • Results
  • Discussion and Conclusion
  • References (optional)

If appropriate, no more than one figure or table, the inclusion of which would not increase the size of the abstract to more than one page.

All proposals must be submitted by December 31, 2013.

All submissions must be made through the submission site.
