Invitation to participate in the Summit on Translational Bioinformatics 2012

The American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) invites submissions for
the 2012 Summit on Translational Bioinformatics (TBI), which will be held on
March 19th-21st 2012 at the Parc 55 Hotel San Francisco, CA. The Summit is
part of the Joint Summits on Translational Science and will be followed by
the Summit on Clinical Research Informatics (CRI) at the same venue on March
21st – 23rd.

Since 2008, the TBI Summit is the premier forum for interacting with leaders
in informatics at the interface of biomedical research and health care. The
2012 TBI Summit features a scientific program comprising a set of tutorials,
lectures, panels, and posters that showcase the latest advances in applying
informatics to biomedical research and clinical care. This year, we have
four tracks covering research that takes us from base pairs to the bedside,
with an emphasis on clinical implications of mining massive data-sets, and
on bridging the latest multimodal measurement technologies with large
amounts of healthcare data:

   - Concepts, Tools and Techniques for Translational Bioinformatics
   - Integrative Analysis of multi modal measurements
   - Base pairs to Bedside
   - Informatics with Big Data

*Details at:* www.amia.org/jointsummits2012/tbi-submission

*Key dates:*
Paper Proposals: August 19, 2011
Panels, Posters, Podium Abstract Proposals: October 21, 2011

*Details on submission types:* www.amia.org/jointsummits2012/types-proposals

We look forward to innovative data–centric approaches that compute on large
amounts of data to discover patterns and to make clinically relevant
predictions that are the forte of Translational Bioinformatics. The changes
in public policy, the availability of large datasets from multiple molecular
level measurements, and the increasing electronic heath record (EHR)
adoption, coupled with the recent advances in natural language processing,
access to vast computing infrastructure, sophisticated ontologies,
data-mining and machine learning tools have all converged to enable Big Data
mining in Translational Bioinformatics.  We anticipate that the TBI Summit
will continue to be the venue where the latest informatics research at the
dynamic interface of biomedical research and patient care gets showcased. We
look forward to your submissions and hope that you will join us in San
Francisco in March of 2012.
