Scientific Sessions & E-posters

 ABSTRACT SUBMISSION IS NOW CLOSED.

 

 
 
 
Scientific Sessions Overview
The Scientific Sessions will be presented from 7:30 am to 9:00 am on Wednesday, October 10th and Thursday, October 11th.
 
Scientific Sessions will consist of a series of 15 minute talks, each of which is immediately followed by questions, which are posed by the audience. Researchers interested in presenting as part of these sessions should submit a 350 word abstract. There is particular interest in submissions that focus on three main areas of sub-specialization: pathology informatics, biomedical informatics, molecular pathology and imaging. Recommended topics include but are not limited to: controlled vocabulary, digital microscopy, telemedicine, computer-assisted decision support, pattern recognition, tissue and gene array analysis, data-mining, education, outcomes research, clinical imaging, optics, imaging storage and management, standardization, automation, image based query, integration and workflow.
 
Recognition will be based on how the presenter’s work furthers the fields of informatics and imaging as well  as on the content and clarity of the presentation. The work may be motivated by problems encountered in pathology and reflect research on algorithms, systems, software, databases, or it may describe novel laboratory applications and any new technologies or systems impacting informatics. Presenters may employ PowerPoint, multimedia, and/or Internet-based technologies. Awards will be presented on site. 
 
Authors wishing to participate in the Scientific Session must submit an electronic abstract and must adhere to formatting guidelines. All accepted Scientific Session abstracts will be published in the Journal of Pathology Informatics. 

Pathology Informatics 2012 will feature three main areas of concentration:

•    Pathology Informatics (such as controlled vocabulary, decision support, digital microscopy,
distance learning)

•    Biomedical Informatics (such as oncology outcomes research, clinical trials informatics,
consumer-health informatics, computational biology, data-mining, tissue and gene array analysis)

•    Molecular Pathology and Imaging (such as enhanced reporting, optics, storage and
management, standardization, automation, image based query, integration and workflow) 
 

E-Poster Presentations Overview
E-poster presentations are similar to traditional poster presentations, but are presented directly from the Internet using a PC. E-posters may take several forms, including a PC-driven PowerPoint presentation, a live demonstration of a Web site, or other Web-based media. Electronic submission of the abstract is required, and all abstracts must adhere to submission compliance and formatting guidelines.
  
E-poster presentations are similar to traditional poster presentations, but are presented directly from the Internet using a PC. E-posters may take several forms, including a PC-driven PowerPoint presentation, a live demonstration of a Web site, or other Web-based media.  Authors wishing to participate in the E-Poster Presentations must submit an electronic abstract that must adhere to formatting guidelines.  
  
If you are selected to present an E-Poster, you will be required to provide your own laptop for presentation.  A table and power outlet will be provided. 
 
All accepted E_Poster abstracts will be published in the Journal of Pathology Informatics.
