Forwarding this message on behalf of the Summit Chairs--

AMIA, the association for informatics professionals, invites your submission to the 2012 Joint Summits, March 19-23, 2012, in San Francisco. The Translational Bioinformatics (TBI) Summit opens the AMIA Joint Summits on Translational Science and will be followed by the Summit on Clinical Research Informatics (CRI) from March 21– 23, 2012, at the same venue.
For TBI, we look forward to submissions that include 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 increasing electronic heath record (EHR) adoption, coupled with recent advances in natural language processing, access to vast computing infrastructure, sophisticated ontologies, data-mining and machine learning tools that have all converged to enable Big Data mining in Translational Bioinformatics.  This year, four tracks will cover research that takes the field from base pairs to 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
Track details at: www.amia.org/jointsummits2012/tbi-submission

For CRI, we look forward to submissions that showcase leading-edge innovative methods and technologies that focus on accelerating all phases of translational science – including study of conceptual design and simulation, patient identification and recruitment, data collection, integration and visualization, and data analysis, dissemination and knowledge transfer. We highlight four specific areas for special emphasis. But we invite submissions from across the CRI community to present the broad range of activities that are addressing translational research informatics needs.
  • Research and Resource Discovery, Collaboration and Sharing
  • Bedside to Base Pairs -- From Clinical Observations to Genetic Discovery
  • Clinical Care and Clinical Research Work Flow Integration
  • Emerging Informatics Platforms for Integrated Translational Research
Track details at: www.amia.org/jointsummits2012/cri-submission

Key dates:
Paper Proposals: due August 19, 2011
Panels, Posters, Podium Abstract Proposals: due October 21, 2011
Details on submission types: www.amia.org/jointsummits2012/types-proposals
We look forward to your submissions and hope that you will join us in San Francisco in March of 2012.
