API Digital Pathology and AI Workshop II - The James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute (The Ohio State University), Columbus, OH
12/7/18 - 12/8/18

Workshop Summary

This workshop will focus on the practical issues surrounding the deployment of digital pathology and AI in a hospital setting. Ten lectures by national experts will be punctuated by Q and A sessions including industry representatives and a guided tour of the Ohio State University's Department of Pathology. Topics covered will include the fundamentals of digital pathology, the integration of the technology with LISs, the enhancement of AP workflow, the development of an RFP for purchasing digital pathology equipment, and current perspectives about AI within pathology.
The workshop will begin at 7:30 am, Friday, December 7, with coffee and a light breakfast. Friday presentations will consist of lectures and faculty Q and A. During the latter part of Friday afternoon, registrants will separate into three groups and tour the OSU digital pathology center located in the nearby James Cancer Hospital. Saturday morning, December 8, will consist of the the continuing faculty lectures and a summary at the end of the morning of “lessons learned” during the workshop. The conference will adjourn at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday. The tempo of this digital pathology workshop is rapid by design with ten faculty lectures, each for about 40 minutes. A congenial dinner with a featured after-dinner speaker on the evening of Friday, December 7, is included in the conference registration price and will enable peer-to-peer interactions.
It is anticipated that all registrants will have a keen interest in deploying a digital pathology system in their home practices and will leave Columbus with a broad range of practical ideas about how to rapidly achieve this goal. Because of the limited size of the conference room, registrations will be limited to 90 on a first-come, first-served basis. Last year's inaugural workshop with about half the room capacity was over subscribed and it is anticipated that this year's event will track a similar course.
