The presentations will take place at Simmons College, a short distance from Countway Library and last year's meeting. The address is 300 The Fenway Boston, MA 02115. Parking and other information is available HERE.
Most of the breakout sessions on the second day will be in the Countway Library. Specific room locations will be announced closer to the event and we will have details and maps at the Registration desk during the event.
During the second day, a review of the Foundation platform roadmap will be presented with discussions and a breakout session. This will take place at Countway Library. See the LOGISTICS page for more details.
On Day 2 we will have multiple break-out session including the current Foundation Working Groups (User Interfaces, Ontologies, ETL, Use Cases) along with topics of interest in the areas of open source architecture, integration tools like PIC-SURE, etc. Other topics of interest to the community will be added. Paul Avillach and his team will hold sessions on the genomic medicine platform based on PIC-SURE and that incorporates the production releases of both i2b2 and tranSMART.
