2018 OHDSI Symposium – DATES CHANGED!
We recently discovered that the initial dates of the 2018 OHDSI Symposium (September 17-19th) fall over Yom Kippur. We always try to avoid major holidays to ensure everyone is able to attend, therefore we’ve decided to move the symposium to October 11-13th.
The main symposium will take place on Friday, October 12th and we’ll be holding tutorials before and after the symposium on October 11th and 13th.
