APAMI 2020 21 to 23 November 2020 in Hamamatsu, Japan

On behalf of the Asia-Pacific Association for Medical Informatics (APAMI) it is our great pleasure and privilege in extending a cordial invitation to participate at the APAMI 2020 Conference to be held in Hamamatsu, Japan on 21-23 November 2020.

The conference theme is “Informatics for Patient Engagement” which WHO has been promoting globally, but we also invite papers in any field in medical informatics from all over the world.

As the coronavirus has been the main medical concern all over the world right now and seems to continue for some time. We therefore encourage and welcome any new research on “Medical Informatics for COVID-19” to be presented at APAMI 2020.

This conference will be organized in parallel with the 40th Joint Conference on Medical Informatics (JCMI 40, the biggest domestic academic conference in this field) at the same venue. The APAMI 2020 participants will have a free access to their technical sessions as an extra benefit. Thus, this conference will provide you an excellent opportunity to establish new relationships with professional colleagues from various nations including the Asia Pacific region.

Hamamatsu (浜松) is a beautiful city located in western Shizuoka Prefecture of Japan. It is only one hour by super express railway from the Tokyo and Nagoya area. You can visit peaceful Lake Hamana and access the world famous Mt. Fuji. Hamamatsu City is a member of the World Health Organization’s Alliance for Healthy Cities (AFHC). We are very much delighted to have the event in this healthy city.

We look forward to welcoming you to APAMI 2020 in this healthy city of Hamamatsu.
