Healthcare and Life Sciences HPC/AI Conferences to Attend in 2020

With so many changes occurring in the fast-paced world of healthcare and life sciences, it is a challenge for most to keep up as technology is growing.  There are many conferences to keep you at the forefront!  Conferences give you an opportunity to hear from notable experts, network with like minded individuals and keep up to date on important technology developments in the healthcare industry.  But which conference should you attend?

Below we have compiled a list of the top healthcare conferences in 2020.  We compiled this list based on feedback from our clients, team, and industry leaders.

HIMSS Conference – Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society

One of the largest and most renowned conferences in the healthcare space HIMSS is a global conference that brings together healthcare information technology leaders and experts from around the world.  This year’s keynote speakers include baseball player and investor, Alex Rodriguez and Gianrico Farrugia, President and CEO of the Mayo Clinic.  Mark III will be attending this conference and presenting on Healthcare AI-as-a-Service and How BERT and next-gen NLP AI enable healthcare institutions to read and interpret chart notes with unprecedented speed and accuracy.  If you want more information about our talks and our booth click here to send us a message!  To read more about our time at HIMSS last year, click here!

Dell Technologies HPC Community Meeting

This is the annual Dell Technologies HPC User Group Meeting in Austin.  If you’re looking for updates on HPC strategy, product and solution plans from Dell Executives and technical partners, you want to be here!

GTC – GPU Technology Conference 

If you’re thinking about an organization wide strategy around AI, this is a great conference to collect knowledge and information around a wide variety of AI and Machine Learning and Deep Learning and HPC topics.  You can find talks from leaders in pathology, radiology, medical microscopy, cancer research, medical informatics, using AI with medical records and more.  Click here for our blog about our week at GTC last year.

AI In Early Drug Discovery

The Artificial Intelligence for Early Drug Discovery conference will bring together a diverse group of experts from bioinformatics, chemistry, target discovery, DMPK, and toxicology to talk about the increasing use of computational tools, artificial intelligence (AI) models, machine learning (ML) algorithms, and data mining in preclinical drug development.  Our team attended this conference last year and took away some invaluable insights on how AI is shaping this industry.  You can read more about our experience here.

BioIT World

This is a great conference to attend if you’re interested life sciences.  You can attend multiple sessions on the analysis of cutting-edge technologies as well as analytic approaches that solve problems and drive the future of precision medicine.  Our team has attended this conference multiple items and participated in the Hackathon. You can read more about it here.

PEARC – Practice Experience in Advanced Research Computing Conference

PEARC 2020 will explore the current practice and experience in advanced research computing including modeling, simulation, and data-intensive computing.  Mark III has hosted booths and attended annually!  If you are interested in areas of advanced research computing and cyber infrastructure and want to learn more about the depth and diversity in HPC/AI - this is the conference for you!

SuperComputing - SC20

Each year, SC provides the leading technical program for professionals and students in the HPC community, as measured by impact, at the highest academic and professional standards.  The Program is designed to share best practices in areas such as: algorithms; applications; architectures and networks; clouds and distributed computing; data analytics, visualization, and storage; machine learning and HPC.  Our data scientists and team have attended this conference for multiple years and have always found it valuable.

We hope this list gives you some direction on what healthcare technology conference you want to attend this year!  Hope to see you there!
