Information and Health at Iowa: Breaking Boundaries and Building Bridges
October 28-29 2004
The Human Genome Project, DNA sequencing and data mining: it’s all possible because of informatics. Informatics connects educators, information specialists, computational engineers and biomedical researchers.
Learn about the groundbreaking cross-disciplinary health informatics research taking place here at the University of Iowa. Distinguished speakers from UI Colleges of Engineering, Medicine, Law, Nursing, Public Health, and the Liberal Arts and Sciences as well as the National Library of Medicine and University of California-San Diego School of Medicine will share their research in health informatics.
Share your informatics projects in conference poster sessions. Submissions not exceeding 300 words should be submitted by September 24th to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Poster Proposal” included in the e-mail subject line. They should include a title, author name(s), affiliation (student, staff, faculty, area professional), e-mail address, and a brief description including purpose, design, results, discussion and conclusions.
“This poster session will provide an opportunity for both UI faculty and student researchers to discuss their work with leading experts in health informatics,” said Michael Kienzle, professor in the College of Medicine and member of the Health Informatics Steering Committee. “Authors of accepted proposals will earn recognition in the conference program and a peer-reviewed entry on their own curriculum vitae.”
Students are encouraged to share their research. The top five student posters will receive a $100 award.
