APAMI 2009 conference

Michio Kimura

APAMI 2009 is the sixth conference of the Asia-Pacific Medical Informatics Association. It will be held on 21-24 November in Hiroshima, Japan – the conference website is now live at http://www.mi.hama-med.ac.jp/apami/ Thanks to Michio Kimura, Chairperson of APAMI2009, for the information.

The website also contains useful travel information to help those planning their trips to Hiroshima for APAMI 2009, the IMIA Board and General Assembly meetings, and the other activities being held under the umbrella of CoMHI in Hiroshima 2009 (http://home.hiroshima-u.ac.jp/~humind1/comhi2009/index.html).

APAMI (Asia Pacific Association for Medical Informatics) has launched in 1993 as a regional body of IMIA, and has hosted triennial academic conferences in Singapore 1994, Sydney 1997, Hong Kong 2000, Seoul 2003, and Taipei 2006. In the conference, more than 100 high quality papers are presented, of which the recommended ones are invited to submit to high-ranking professional journals such as IJMI and MIM. The conference scope covers not only general medical informatics, but also reflects the nature of healthcare in this region (multi-language, multi-culture, high population density, etc.)

In 2009, the Japan Association for Medical Informatics has the honor of hosting this classic conference, and plans to have it with 2500+ attending Japan’s national MI conference in Hiroshima. The conference theme is “What are the medical records for?” JAMI sincerely invites  participation in this conference on the scope of state-of-the-art medical informatics issues, as well as looking back on the true purpose of medical records in the peace memorial Hiroshima city.
