This conference will explore ways in which the new field of informatics is having significant positive impacts on life sciences businesses and research. Informatics is broad in scope, including the science of information, the practice of information processing, and the engineering of information systems, as well as human factors and human-computer interaction and the study of social impacts of information technology. Informatics develops new ways for information technology to convert data into comprehensible information and turn it into useful knowledge, focusing on distributed systems technology, information theory, and information management. Participants in this conference will hear about informatics applications from a diverse group of leaders in Indiana life science industries and businesses. In addition, there will be opportunities to learn how the Indiana University School of Informatics is helping to prepare future informatics employees in areas such as health informatics, bioinformatics, cheminformatics, laboratory informatics, human-computer interaction, computer security, and new media.
