Classify Your Proposal for AMIA 2022 Informatics Summit
We invite submissions that advance the AMIA 2022 Informatics Summit. Work describing fundamental informatics methods as well as systems and applications are both welcome.
Authors will be asked to select the appropriate programmatic track for their submission from our core three areas.
- Clinical Research Informatics
- Data Science
- Translational Bioinformatics
Additionally, authors may choose to designate their submission as part of the Applied Theme.
- Applied (formerly Implementation)
Finally, Authors will be asked to designate up to three keywords for their proposals via an online submission form. These keywords will be used to match proposals to reviewers and to help organize the accepted submissions into sessions/tracks. While we recognize no classification scheme is perfect, please choose terms that best characterize your proposal.
Clinical Research Informatics
The use of informatics in the discovery and management of new knowledge relating to health and disease. Clinical research informatics includes management of information related to clinical trials and also involves informatics related to secondary research use of clinical data. Clinical research informatics and translational bioinformatics are the primary domains related to informatics activities to support translational research.
The science and art of developing data-driven solutions through comprehension of complex real-world health problems, employing critical thinking and analytics to derive knowledge from (big) data. Health Data Science is an emergent discipline, arising at the intersection of (bio)statistics, computer science, and health. Solutions to tackle (big) data problems often require integrative approaches using methods from multiple fields. Data Science track submissions can be focused on development of novel methodologies, analytics, and use cases.
The development of storage, analytic, and interpretive methods to optimize the transformation of increasingly voluminous biomedical data, and genomic/omics data, into proactive, predictive, preventive, and participatory health. Translational bioinformatics includes research on the development of novel techniques for the integration/interpretation of biological and clinical data and the evolution of clinical informatics methodology to encompass biological observations. The end product of translational bioinformatics is newly found knowledge from these integrative efforts and actionable data for use by a variety of stakeholders, including biomedical scientists, clinicians, and patients.
The development, deployment, management, and evaluation of innovative informatics tools, platforms, and interventions across clinical research informatics, data science, and translational bioinformatics. Applied work can include gap analyses, requirements gathering, software dissemination approaches, and implementation use cases such as decision support approaches that incorporate translational bioinformatics or data science methods into patient care. The goal is to improve the usability, accuracy, and efficiency of informatics solutions that have a real-world impact on informatics professionals, researchers, care providers, and/or patients.
Select Your Category
The types of proposals considered and general requirements for each are listed below. All proposals must conform to the format and presentation requirements described herein. See the “Submission File Requirements” section to find more details on page layout, references, etc.
The same submission may not be submitted in different presentation types in hopes that one of them will be accepted. In such instances, all will be rejected without review.
Categories of Submission
The types of submissions considered for the AMIA 2022 Virtual Informatics Summit and general requirements for each are listed on these pages. All submissions must conform to the format and presentation requirements described herein, and on the AMIA 2022 Virtual Informatics Summit submission site. Specific file formatting requirements as well as an example template are given in the submission instructions section.
IMPORTANT! Deviation from the prescribed format, especially the number of pages, will result in rejection of the submission without review. Please see the submission templates (Word, LaTex) for reference.
Please note: we are no longer using ScholarOne as our abstract submission platform. We are using eShow. To submit through this platform, you need to use your AMIA login or create an account. Any questions can be directed to Dasha Cohen, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Submission File Requirements
Adherence to the following requirements ensures a consistency that facilitates a successful review process. Complete the online form as instructed and attach your manuscript file in compliance with the requirements noted below:
- File must be in PDF format.
- Adhere to the page length restrictions stated in the category descriptions.
- Format for 8.5 x 11-inch paper size with one-inch margins left, right, top and bottom.
- Place the title in 14-point Times New Roman typeface, single column, bold, centered, upper and lower case using initial capitals for each word in the title other than articles and prepositions.
- Below the title include the names, credentials, institutions and locations of the author(s) or panelists, exactly as they are to appear in the on-line and print programs, using 12-point Times New Roman typeface, single-column, bold, centered, upper and lower case using appropriate capitals.
- Include the main text of the proposal file single-spaced in 10-point Times New Roman typeface, justified, one-column format.
- Do not number individual pages.
- Remove all “track changes” markings, then disable track changes before uploading.
Use the following reference format: Cite all references in the text, tables or figure legends. In the text, use eight-point superscript if possible, to indicate reference numbers; if not possible, use 10-point numbers in square brackets. Under a centered heading “References” at the end of the proposal, provide a list of references cited, in order of occurrence in the manuscript, and with titles using initial capital only. List all authors of any cited work when there are six or fewer authors; if more than six, list only the first three followed by “et al.” Follow the Vancouver Style see www.icmje.org/index.html. References must fit within the allotted page(s).
Industry-authored and industry-client collaborative papers, abstracts, panels, demonstrations, ignite-style talks, and posters are welcome for submission as described above. No special submission designation is required. All industry submissions will be considered according to the standard review process. Industry submissions should not market and promote a specific product or company.
Submission Process and Deadlines
All proposals must be submitted through the submission site in accordance with the following deadline: August 26, 2021, 11:59 p.m. EDT. There will be no exceptions.
For all submission categories, you will need to complete the online form as instructed and upload your abstract file in compliance with directions provided in this document. Decisions for all formats will be announced in early December.
