The conference will invite top experts and scholars from both China and US to present state-of-the-art work in both informatics methods (e.g., deep learning, common data model, natural language processing, data privacy and security) and EHR-based clinical studies, thus to promote adoption of OHDSI in China and to enable international collaboration, education, and training in biomedical informatics.
