Each year, the Faculty holds two prestigious conferences, featuring leading keynote speakers on important topical informatics research. Sessions focus on developments in informatics across the range of professional health and social care disciplines.
The Annual Scientific Conference is open to anyone with an interest in digital health and the Membership conference is a members-only event.
FCI Scientific Conference
Our Scientific Conference is the foremost event for the science and practice of clinical informatics. The conference offers an opportunity to learn about pioneering research and insights for using information to improve health and wellbeing. The conference includes topics from across the spectrum of health and social care, from managing information and communications to tracking the health of populations. From the leading experts in the field, to the students eager to get started, the conference will provide you with an opportunity to learn and to grow professionally, to network and to start new collaborations.
Attendees have the opportunity to submit an abstract which are reviewed by our panel of judges for inclusion in our programme. Chosen abstracts cover a broad range of clinical informatics work. You can find abstracts from our 2021 and 2020 events here, as well as the corresponding programme.
