Call For Papers

We invite you to contribute your best work for presentation at the AMIA 2021 Annual Symposium – the foremost symposium for the science and practice of biomedical informatics. The AMIA 2021 Annual Symposium, held October 30 – November 3 in San Diego, invites submissions from informatics researchers and practitioners around the world.

The Annual Symposium will build on more than 40 years of sharing research and insights for leveraging health information to improve human health. Topics of interest span the spectrum from deciphering the phenomena underpinning disease, to managing information and communications for improving patient care, to tracking the health of populations.

The AMIA 2021 Annual Symposium will consider poster, podium abstract, regular paper, student paper, panel, systems demonstration, and workshop submissions that showcase the latest innovations from the community of biomedical informatics researchers and practitioners.

Paper templates are available in both LaTeX and Microsoft Word.

The AMIA 2021 Annual Symposium submissions will be categorized as either: (1) foundational contributions to informatics methods (“Foundations”); (2) reports on the application of informatics in the context of health (“Applications”); or (3) discussions of policy topics influenced or impacted by informatics (“Policy”). Reflecting the often cross-cutting implications of informatics innovations, submissions may be categorized into multiple tracks simultaneously.

From the time that authors begin to prepare their papers, abstracts, or proposals, they should consider whether their principal results and insights would more aptly be presented as a foundational, applied, policy, or some combination therein.

1. The Foundations track focuses on the conceptual and methodological advances that underpin the spectrum of biomedical informatics innovation. Contributions in this track should include work that presents progress in the generating, structuring, processing, managing, and analysis of biomedical and health information. Overall priority areas include the description and demonstration of methodologies that show promise in advancing the understanding and support of research and education in biological, clinical, and public health contexts.

2. The Applications track focuses on innovations in the design, technology, implementation, use, and evaluation of information systems and knowledge resources across the full spectrum of healthcare - in acute, ambulatory, and chronic care settings, public health departments, libraries, educational centers, and homes. Contributions to this track should emphasize applications that work in the real world to solve problems that impact or characterize health and well-being.

3. The Policy track focuses on informatics-relevant policies, policy recommendations, and policy evaluations, as well as the dependencies between informatics innovations and informatics policy. Priority will be given to those submissions that discuss informatics topics that may have either been influenced by policy decisions (e.g., Meaningful Use) or that may impact policy (e.g., 21st Century Cures). Contributions in this track should clearly identify policy implications and the role played by innovative informatics methodology.

We look forward to receiving your submissions by Wednesday, March 10, 2021, and seeing you in the fall!
