Dear Colleagues,

I am delighted to share the call for proposals for the *AMIA 2011 Summit on
Translational Bioinformatics, *March 7-9, 2011, (
http://jointsummits2011.amia.org/). Please share the details below with
interested researchers at your institution.

The American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) is pleased to invite you
to submit proposals for papers and panels for the 2011 Summit on
Translational Bioinformatics (TBI). The TBI Summit will be held on March
7th-9th, 2011, at the Parc 55 Hotel San Francisco, California as part of the
Joint Summits on Translational Science. Since 2008, the Summit has been
recognized as a key venue for the exchange of ideas in translational
bioinformatics. We seek the best work by leading biomolecular and clinical
informaticians, geneticists, computational biologists, biologists,
clinicians, technologists, computer scientists and public health
scientists.

*SUBMISSION DATES*
*Papers: August 16, 2010*
*Panels: October 18, 2010*
*Abstracts: December 15, 2010*

All proposals must be submitted using the link on the proposals page at the
AMIA website according to following deadlines as described here:
*http://jointsummits2011.amia.org/tbi-2011-initial-call-proposals*

The Summit on Translational Bioinformatics aims to highlight the
trans-disciplinary nature of this now-burgeoning research field and provide
a unique opportunity to bring together the finest minds in translational
bioinformatics from the academia, industry, government and non-profit
sectors. As in previous years, the top papers will be invited to publish in
an open access journal.

The four tracks this year are focused on methodological innovations from
bench to bedside, with a particular emphasis on clinical implications based
on the latest in molecular and cellular biology innovations:

- Concepts, Tools and Techniques to Enable Integrative Translational
Bioinformatics
- Integrative Analysis of Molecular and Clinical Measurements
- Representing and Relating Phenotypes and Disease for Translational
Bioinformatics
- Bridging Basic Science Discoveries and Clinical Practice

Reflecting on the unique position of translational bioinformatics in medical
research and ultimately in clinical care, the 2011 Scientific Program
Committee and Advisory Committee strives to design a comprehensive
scientific program with a complementary set of tutorials, lectures, panels,
and posters that are designed to feature the latest innovative deployment
and translation of biomedical informatics research products to biomedical
research and clinical care. We anticipate the Summit will once more be a
stimulating and informative experience and a testimony to the commitment of
this rapidly growing research community to work together on unified
interests to catalyze discoveries and innovations in biomedical research and
patient care.
