Call for Participation for 2016 Summit on Clinical Research Informatics

Submission Deadline: September 24, 2015, 11:59 p.m. EDT

AMIA is pleased to invite submissions for the 2016 AMIA Summit on Clinical Research Informatics (CRI), which will be held Wednesday-Thursday March 23-24, at the Parc 55 Hotel in San Francisco, California. The CRI Summit is part of the AMIA Joint Summits on Translational Science and will immediately follow the Summit on Translational Bioinformatics (TBI) at the same venue on Monday-Tuesday, March 21-22, 2016.

There will be an invigorated effort to integrate the CRI and TBI aspects for the Joint Summits this year and a special call for submissions that have relevance to both CRI and TBI communities.  TBI and CRI will have joint programming on Tuesday, March 22 and Wednesday, March 23.

Now in its seventh year, the AMIA CRI Summit highlights new informatics models, methodologies, tools, and platforms for the capture, storage, retrieval, integration, visualization, extraction, and analysis of biomedical research data. The explosive growth in the size and diversity of biomedical research data, information and knowledge continues to push current CRI capabilities. The AMIA 2016 CRI Summit is the national forum where cutting-edge clinical research informatics approaches are showcased and best practices are shared.

Clinical Research Informatics is a vibrant and rapidly-changing field. We seek to create an environment where all participants can engage in active dialog with the academic and commercial CRI communities. Professional networking is an important "Criterion for Success" for the AMIA CRI Summit, and the final program will reflect opportunities for professional networking and dialog.

The AMIA CRI Summit has grown significantly in the last six years, reflecting the recognition of the critical importance of informatics technologies to advancing translational research. We look forward to receiving submissions that describe the latest innovations and knowledge that you are creating.

Submission Deadline: September 24, 2015, 11:59 p.m. EDT

All submissions must be made through the submission site.
