Computable Biomedical Knowledge Meeting at the NIH
Meeting dates: July 18-19, 2019
There is growing recognition that infrastructure supporting modern science--including scalable and sustainable Learning Health Systems and Precision Medicine--requires biomedical knowledge to be routinely represented in computer readable forms as a complement to the customary human readable forms. This recognition has given rise to a national movement to “Mobilize Computable Biomedical Knowledge” (MCBK). You can learn more about computable knowledge and the movement to mobilize it at mobilizecbk.org. This movement will ensure that biomedical research and public health will have “Big Knowledge” infrastructure as a necessary complement to “Big Data” infrastructure to improve individual and population health. The first open MCBK meeting, jointly sponsored by the University of Michigan and the National Library of Medicine, was held at the NLM Lister Hill Center in July of 2018, attracting 150 participants.
The next “Mobilize Computable Biomedical Knowledge” (MCBK) meeting will be held at the NIH Natcher Center on July 18-19, 2019.
Register for the meeting. Note the special rate for government employees.
Posters will be accepted until May 24.
