Donation Option: AMIA is a nonprofit organization and relies heavily on the revenue from our scientific conferences to continue with operations and continuing our mission. While cancelling these live events are necessary for the health and well-being of all involved, it creates a significant loss for the organization. If you are not able to attend the virtual event, we ask that you consider donating your conference registration to AMIA. In return, you will sustain our work during this challenging time as we move forward with future AMIA initiatives. Donations of any size are fully tax deductible.

The AMIA 2020 Informatics Summit focuses on cutting edge research around four main areas: Translational Bioinformatics, Clinical Research Informatics, Implementation Informatics and Data Science. The meeting brings together researchers from these fields and beyond to share their work and promote a vibrant exchange of ideas leading to new collaborations, innovation and discovery. The program is diverse including research presentations, keynote speakers, panels and short “elevator pitch” presentations highlighting the newest developments in the field of informatics with the goal of enhancing the sharing of methods and approaches across the four areas of focus.
