Scientists and Researchers

We invite implementers (representing healthcare providers and software vendors) to present their implementation experiences.

All suggested topics will be reviewed by the Program Committee to ensure a reasonable quality as well as a balanced series of presentations. In order to facilitate evaluation and dissemination of these experiences, attendees are requested to submit short practice reports, possibly also allowing that their presentations be recorded. The practice reports will be published as part of the conference proceedings, and the recordings will be made available on the conference website after the meeting.

We invite scientists to submit papers to be presented in the conference and be published in the conference proceedings.

All papers will be reviewed by at least two independent reviewers. Selected papers will be published in the special issue “Interoperability is more than just technology” of the “European Journal of Biomedical Informatics”.

The best scientific paper by a young author (<35y) will be awarded with the “Joachim W. Dudeck Award” (see the final page of this announcement for details).
