The PI Summit is the only conference in the U.S. devoted exclusively to research pathology informatics and applied knowledge in both anatomic and clinical pathology. Many lectures and exhibitors at the PI Summit will also be focused on digital pathology. The lineage of the meeting stretches back to the AIMCL conference launched in Ann Arbor thirty-four years ago. Here's a link to the conference "about" page that provides many more details. Come to mingle with your pathology informatics peers and be prepared for a multi-day learning experience and a vibrant exhibitor ballroom.
