AMIA symposium

In November (13-17), I was in Washington at the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) Annual Symposium, which is one of the largest conferences in medical informatics. The talks and posters presented at the conference covered many aspects of medical informatics and there was always at least one NLP (natural language processing) or data mining track.
Many talks and posters were relevant for the areas that we in the human language technology group within IT for Health are working on, such as the area automatic classification and coding and the area uncertainty and negation detection.
I was lucky enough to receive a scholarship for going to the conference, which I am really grateful for, since I learnt a lot!
