The i2b2 tranSMART Foundation, in cooperation with the Department of BioMedical Informatics (DBMI) of the Harvard University Medical School, was  held on June 27th and 28th 2018.

The format this year was a bit different with speakers on the first day talking about the importance of the platforms of the Foundation (i2b2 and tranSMART), their history as well as a look at the evolution of precision medicine.
On Day 2 we had multiple break-out session spanning the topics of current Foundation Working Groups (User Interfaces, Ontologies, ETL, Training, etc.) along with topics of interest in the areas of open source architecture, integration tools like PIC-SURE, etc.  Other topics will be added along with a hackathon on a topic of interest to the community.
