    AMIA is pleased to invite submissions for the AMIA 2019 Informatics Summit to be held March 25 – March 28, 2019, at the Parc 55 Hotel in San Francisco, California. The Summit has evolved into a conference giving a voice to informaticians from four key constituencies who are working to improve healthcare.  Attendees will experience content dedicated to Bioinformatics, Clinical Research Informatics, Informatics Implementation, and Data Science in one integrated conference experience. For 2019, we will continue to emphasize your innovations in these areas, but also are looking for syntheses across areas and along the translational spectrum.
    The AMIA 2019 Informatics Summit: Bioinformatics, Clinical Research, Implementation, and Data Science is a dynamic activity continuously reflecting the changing nature of informatics. Building off the success of the AMIA 2018 Informatics Summit with the addition of the Data Science track, the Informatics Summit has embraced the contributions each of these tracks play in the improvement and growth of the field of informatics. Informatics professionals and collaborators within these four sectors make a clear impact to patient care and human health.
    We look forward to receiving submissions that describe the latest innovations and knowledge that you are creating in Bioinformatics, Clinical Research Informatics, Informatics Implementation, and Data Science.  Sessions will be distinctly tagged with one (or more) of our four major themes of the AMIA 2019 Informatics Summit.

    BISTI Seminar: Artificial Intelligence to Modernize Cancer Surveillance by Georgia Tourassi (ORNL)

    Dec 6, 2018.9:00 AM

    This seminar is in memory of our former colleague Dr. Paul Fearn (NCI)

    Unstructured clinical text documents such as pathology reports are a primary source of information for cancer registries which process high volumes of reports annually. Information extraction and coding is a manual, labor-intensive process. In this talk I will discuss the deep learning technologies developed as part of the DOE-NCI partnership, presenting both theoretical and practical perspectives that are relevant to natural language processing of clinical pathology reports for computational cancer phenotyping. Using different deep learning architectures, I will present benchmark studies for various information extraction tasks and discuss their importance in supporting a comprehensive and scalable national cancer surveillance program.

    Mobile health (mHealth) provides unprecedented opportunities to measure dynamic changes in health state and the key physical, biological, behavioral, social, and environmental factors that contribute to health and disease risk. In the last decade a significant number of mHealth technologies have been developed and applied to advance health research. They include wearable and mobile sensors for data collection; discovery and validation of novel mHealth biomarkers; software platforms for large-scale participant enrollment and data collection; big data software for data analysis, visualization, and discovery, and mobile apps for self-monitoring and intervention.

    An mHealth Technology Showcase will bring together technology developers and health researchers on the National Institutes of Health (NIH) campus in Bethesda, Maryland. The goal for the meeting is to discuss how these communities can work together to improve the specificity, reliability, and validity of health indicators identified from data collected from wearable and mobile sensors, in the context of rapidly evolving and increasingly complex and diverse technologies. It will be held 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. June 4 in the Natcher Auditorium.

    Registration and attendance for the showcase is free. Applications are being accepted for those who want to present their research or demonstrate their technology. Applications will be selected based on the strength of the data presented that supports the specificity, reliability and validity of the technologies used for the health application identified. The application deadline for speakers, poster presenters and technology demonstrators is April 2 , 2018, and applicants will be notified by April 27.

    HPC Security Workshop

    Mar 27, 2018.7:00 AM

    On July 2015, the National Strategic Computing Initiative (NSCI) was established to maximize the benefits of High-Performance Computing (HPC) for economic competitiveness and scientific discovery. For HPC systems to deliver their anticipated benefits, their security requirements must be adequately addressed. To that effect, NIST hosted a workshop in September 2016 that brought together stakeholders from industry, academia, and government to gather their perspectives on the state of technology and future directions. As part of that continuing mission, NIST will host a workshop on March 27-28, 2018 to: review progress in this technology area; assess the threat environment based upon findings and field experience; and build a foundation for development of consensus security principles and controls that are appropriate for the HPC ecosystem.

    Abstract: In many biomedical prediction scenarios, it is difficult to identify the ideal predictor due to incompleteness of knowledge and/or data quality issues. In such scenarios, a powerful approach is to learn heterogeneous ensemble predictors that are learnt from a large and diverse set of base predictors. This talk will describe the basics of these predictors, as well as our work, supported by a BD2K-supported R01, on novel algorithms for learning such predictors from large biomedical datasets. Preliminary results from an innovative application of these predictors to DREAM Challenges will also be presented.
