Dear Colleagues,

The deadline for abstract submissions (either for oral or poster
presentations) to the 2011 AMIA Summit on Translational Bioinformatics
is *December
15th*. As a new feature this year, the *top podium presentations will be
invited for submission of full manuscripts to the Journal of the American
Medical Informatics Association (JAMIA)*.

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.

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.

Best regards,
Nigam.
(on behalf of the TBI Summit SPC)
