API is committed to diversity and inclusion and the API Council and the PI Summit Planning Committee invite individuals across all races, genders, ages, religions, ethnicities, and identity groups to submit their topic proposals for consideration for inclusion in the 2024 Pathology Informatics meeting program. We also highly encourage trainees and junior faculty at the beginning of their careers to submit proposals for both the main plenaries for which we are currently accepting submissions and also for the poster and abstract submissions, which will open later this year. Inclusion and diversity will remain a top priority for the PI Summit Planning Committee and the PI Summit Topic Proposal Committee as they assess all submitted proposals for the 2024 and future meetings.
