Pathology Informatics 2010 and Beyond

The new "Pathology Informatics" annual meeting represents a merger of two long-running informatics meetings into a single, cohesive conference:

  • Lab InfoTechSummit (LITS, formerly AIMCL): 1983 - 2009
  • Advancing Practice, Instruction & Innovation through Informatics (APIII): 1996 - 2009

This API-sponsored conference is designed to meet the needs of physicians including residents and fellows, researchers, and graduate students. The conference is aimed at all informatics knowledge levels with introductory courses offered on the first day of the conference for individuals new to the field. API members receive discount registration to this conference.

The first Pathology Informatics conference was held in Boston, September 19 - 22, 2010. The dates for the 2019 conference are now set and details are being worked out. The 2014 and subsequent conferences will be held earlier in the year to avoid conflicts with other pathology and medical informatics conferences.
