Annual i2b2 AUG / SHRINE Community Conference


The annual i2b2 Academic User Group (AUG) and Shared Health Research Information Network (SHRINE) meeting was held June 21, 2016 in Boston, Massachusetts. The meeting provides the opportunity for i2b2 and SHRINE users to come together, network with other i2b2 users, and speak to many of their colleagues about their current and future endeavors with the i2b2. Members of the i2b2 community are presented with the on-going development being done by the i2b2 and SHRINE development teams.

This year the overlying theme of many of the presentations was using i2b2 and SHRINE for analyzing Phenotypic data. 

 

(thumbs up) The i2b2 Foundation would like to thank all of our presenters as well as all of you that were able to attend and make this another successful Community Conference. We would also like extend a special thank you to TriNetX for sponsoring this years i2b2 AUG / SHRINE Community Conference.
