Deadline for Abstract Submission: February 14th, 2020
The European Observational Health Data Sciences and Informatics team is accepting submission abstracts for posters or software demonstrations at the third annual European OHDSI Symposium to be held on March 27th, 2020 at the University of Oxford, Oxford, United Kingdom (www.ohdsi-europe.org).
The third European OHDSI Symposium entitled "From data to impact: the journey towards improving clinical practice" aims to explain how OHDSI's methods and tools can be used to generate reliable evidence that can improve patient care. The focus this year will be on live demonstrations of the use of the CDM and OHDSI tools to go from research question to impactful reporting of findings.
We invite you to submit an abstract for presentation at the symposium. Abstracts must demonstrate how the work is connected to OHDSI and relevant to OHDSI’s mission in Europe.
We especially invite European projects that have plans to implement the OMOP-CDM as part of their data network.
All submissions will be reviewed by the symposium organizing committee. Successful posters and demonstrations will be presented during an afternoon collaborator showcase. Collaborators will be invited to share their final posters onto a poster repository on the OHDSI website.
This year we will have a lightning talk session where a total of six selected abstracts will be reported during the symposium.
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
- Observational Data Management with a European focus: including interoperability standards, common data model and standardized vocabularies development and evaluation, extract-transform-load (ETL) research and applications, and data quality assessment.
- Analytics technology and infrastructure: design and implementation of hardware and open-source software solutions that leverage the OHDSI community standards or tools to enable evidence generation.
- Methodological research: research and development of new analytical methods for evidence generation, and empirical evaluation of method performance.
Submissions are not limited to finished research but could also focus on future plans to adopt the OMOP-CDM in Europe, share experience in mapping European data, research directions that may be valuable for the community to initiate collaboration, amongst other related topics.
Please use the template in this link for your submission, and indicate if you would like to present a poster or software demonstration. Abstracts should be 100-200 words long.
