Call for Participation

KR-MED 2008 - Representing and sharing knowledge using SNOMED

International Conference

May 31st - June 2nd 2008, Phoenix, AZ, USA

http://www.kr-med.org/2008

Conference organized by
the International Health Terminology Standards Development Organization (IHTSDO) and
the Working Group on Formal (Bio-)Medical Knowledge Representation
of the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA)

Collocated with the AMIA Spring Congress 2008

--------------------------------------------------

The vision of a universal clinical terminology, covering a broad range
of health-related domains and meeting the needs of all health professionals
has stimulated numerous health informatics research activities in the last two decades.

SNOMED CT« (Systematized Nomenclature of Medicine-Clinical Terms) is emerging
as a comprehensive, multilingual clinical healthcare terminology,
since 2007 under a new international ownership.

KR-MED 2008 will follow up the successful first SNOMED conference organized in Copenhagen in October 2006,
and will address health policy makers, clinicians, nurses, system developers,
informatics researchers, computer scientists, terminologists and translators.

KR-MED 2008 is also the third conference of the AMIA working group KR-MED.
It will therefore challenge the current state and the planned roadmap of
SNOMED CT development from a perspective of knowledge representation and formal ontologies.
