The i2b2 tranSMART Foundation Annual Meeting that was scheduled for October 23-24, 2017 in Luxembourg has been canceled. The Organizing Committee and the Foundation management, upon reviewing the very low registration and minimal sponsorship support for the meeting, made this difficult decision.
We will focus on a review and renewed effort to make the events in 2018 as successful as our previous Annual Meetings. While we are disappointed to cancel this year's event, it is clear that more advanced planning for future Foundation events will give the most value to our members and the community of users of the Foundation platforms.
Refunds for those who have paid the registration fee will be issued in the next few days. Also, please cancel hotel reservations on the hotel website.
We apologize for any inconvenience.
Please consider attending the 5th i2b2 European Academic User Group Meeting, October 5-6 in Paris which is adding some tranSMART-specific sessions. Click here for more information.
We are now planning for our 2018 events, so watch for more details as the schedule is confirmed. We have already scheduled our annual Harvard Symposium which will take place on June 27th and 28th 2018 at Harvard Medical School. It will follow the Harvard Department of BioMedical Informatics Precision Medicine Conference on June 26th.
