MIE 2018 @ The Swedish Exhibition & Congress Center
Apr 24 – Apr 26 all-day

MIE 2018 will take place 24th to 26th April 2018, in Gothenburg, Sweden. The Swedish Society for Medical Informatics (SFMI) will host the conference in collaboration with EFMI (European Federation for Medical Informatics). The conference will be co-located with VITALIS, the largest eHealth event in Scandinavia.  MIE2018 is the 29th Medical Informatics Europe conference and marks the 40th anniversary of the MIE conferences, since the first conference in Cambridge UK. Closing the gap between an international audience of academics, health professionals and industry partners.

We invite you to submit scientific contributions to the conference.  MIE2018 chosen focus is “Building Continents of Knowledge in Oceans of Data: the Future of Co-Created eHealth”, pointing to the broad range of topics in digitizing health care, citizens participation, professional challenges meeting health information technology, data science, population health informatics, learning health systems, connected health and changing health systems. These topics are addressed from the perspectives of citizens, patients and their families, health professionals, service providers, standards developers and policy makers alike. The organization will be much the same as for MIE 2008. It will be a co-arrangement as last time with Vitalis where the participants can select either MIE 2018 or Vitalis sessions.  We hope that MIE 2018 in Göteborg will be a great and memorable event for all of us.

We look forward to seeing you in 2018.


eHealth2018 – 12th Annual Conference on Health Informatics Meets eHealth @ Schönbrunn Palace
May 8 – May 9 all-day


The eHealth20XX conference series has been organized by the AIT Austrian Institute of Technology and the Austrian Working Group of Health Informatics and eHealth since 2007 with different partner institutions involved (UMIT until 2016, HIMSS Europe in the eHealth Summits 2013 to 2017 ). Each year, this event attracts 300+ participants from academia, industry, government and health care organizations. In keeping with its motto, “Health Informatics meets eHealth”, the event provides a platform for researchers, practitioners, decision makers and vendors to discuss innovative health informatics and eHealth solutions so as to improve the quality and efficiency of health care. It is the USP of this event that Research and Application meet as equals and provide new insights from both the scientific as well as the practical point of view.

Starting in 2016, the primary conference language of the Scientific Tracks  is English in order to address the increasingly international focus of eHealth and to acknowledge the importance of cross-border health ICT. In Application Tracks, speakers have a choice between German and English.

A special topic for eHealth2018 will be “Biomedical meets eHealth – From Sensors to Decisions”. Future ICT systems and biomedical systems and devices will increasingly be intertwined and share a common entity which is data. This completes the chain and flow of information from the sensor via the processing to the actuator, which can be anything from a human healthcare professional to a Robot. Along this pathway, methods for automating the information processing like machine learning and predictive analytics will play an increasing role in order to provide actionable information and to support preventive health care concepts, in both biomedical and digital healthcare systems and applications.

ITCH 2019 @ Laurel Point Inn
Feb 14 – Feb 17 all-day

An international conference addressing Information Technology and Communications in Health (ITCH)

Health information technologies are revolutionizing and streamlining healthcare and their uptake is rising dramatically. The variety and range of systems and applications is considerable and there is increasing demand for implementation of healthcare IT in hospitals, clinics, homes and in the virtual space of mHealth, pervasive healthcare and social media. However, to effectively implement these technologies scientific, research, industrial and governmental supports must be strongly in place in order to transform healthcare and build capacity at the regional, national and global levels.

The conference will take a multi-perspective view about what is needed in order to move technology along to real sustained and widespread use. Solutions range from improvements in usability and training, to need for new and improved design of information systems, user interfaces and interoperable solutions, to governmental policy, mandates, initiatives and need for regulation. In addition, greater interaction will be needed among industrial, governmental and academic partners.

This conference is presented by the School of Health Information Science.

PLEASE NOTE: Tentative Dates only – dates will be updated shortly.
