It's not too late to make plans to attend the Pathology Informatics Summit which will be held in Pittsburgh on May 23-26. The conference is sponsored by the Association for Pathology Informatics. This is the only conference in the U.S. devoted to the very broad scope of pathology informatics ranging from digital pathology to LISs to clinical lab automation. You can review the entire schedule here. Registration on-site is available. The conference format consists of plenary and track lectures by some of the most prominent informaticians in the country, workshops, and "town hall" discussions.
Most of the vendors supplying IT products and other services for anatomic pathology and the clinical labs will be present in the exhibitor ballroom. This will be your only opportunity to efficiently visit with all of them under one roof. Here's a list of the participants in the conference:
