Annual Symposium of the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA 2013) in Washington DC

Sumithra Velupillai and Aron Henriksson attended the Annual Symposium of the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) in Washington DC (Nov. 17-20). The AMIA symposium is the main medical informatics event in the US, with participants from all states, and around the world, with participants from all continents – there were well over 2,000 participants in total. The symposium thus provided a good overview of current challenges and ongoing research in the world of medical informatics, as well as a great opportunity for networking. Aron presented a paper, Identifying Synonymy between SNOMED Clinical Terms of Varying Length Using Distributional Analysis of Electronic Health Records, co-authored with Mike Conway (UCSD), Martin Duneld (DSV, SU) and Wendy Chapman (University of Utah). We also had a nice reunion dinner with participants in the Interlock project, a two-year (2011-2013) collaboration between Stockholm University and University of California, San Diego.
