It's not too late to register for the 14th annual APIII pathology informatics conference that will be held on September 20-23, 2009, in Pittsburgh. The conference brochure is available on-line as a PDF file. Take a look at it -- this event is one of the major highlights of the year in the field and should not be missed by anyone with even a passing interest in lab computing. You can register on-line, by fax, or my mail. The conference was originally scheduled to run through Thursday, September 24, but the program was slightly truncated because of a conflict with the G20 meeting that will begin on that Thursday in Pittsburgh. Here is the G20 announcement copied directly from the APIII home page:
The Lab InfoTech Summit, after a recent five-year sojourn in Las Vegas and 21 previous years in Ann Arbor as the AIMCL conference, will merge with APIII in 2010. This new mega conference with a unique focus on pathology informatics will be held on 12-17 September, 2010, at the Copley Plaza Hotel in Boston. It will also incorporate the Second World Congress on Pathology Informatics as a third track. Participation in this year's APIII will provide a fitting introduction and launching pad for next year's expanded event.
