2010 Doctoral Consortium on Sociotechnical Issues in Medical Informatics


The American Medical Informatics Association's (AMIA) People and
Organizational Working Group along with the International Medical 

Informatics Association's (IMIA) Organizational and Social Issues
Working Group with support from the National Science Foundation is proud
to sponsor the 2010 Doctoral Consortium on Sociotechnical Issues in
Medical Informatics (http://faculty.ist.psu.edu/reddy/amia/).


The Doctoral Consortium is a forum in which doctoral students can meet
and discuss their work with each other and with a panel of experienced
researchers. We welcome applicants from a broad range of disciplines and
approaches that inform medical informatics, including the social
sciences, humanities, computer and information sciences, clinical
sciences, law, and related fields. Applicants should be past the
candidacy stage and near their thesis proposal defense. If you would
like to apply but do not meet this criteria, please contact the
Consortium Chair. The Consortium committee will select approximately
10-12 participants who will be expected to give short, informal
presentations of their work during the Consortium.


There are a variety of benefits to students participating in the
Consortium including:


1. Participants will receive valuable feedback on their research from
both their peers and faculty mentors.

2. The Consortium will pay AMIA conference registration fees. We will
also reimburse a portion of the hotel and airfare for domestic (US)

3. Accepted papers will have an extended abstract printed in the AMIA
advance and onsite programs. The papers will also be listed on the
consortium website.

4. Participants will have the opportunity to meet and network with peers
and senior AMIA members.


The Consortium will be held on November 13, 2010 in conjunction with the
American Medical Informatics (AMIA) 2010 Annual Symposium
(http://symposium2010.amia.org/) in Washington DC, Nov 13-17.
