Call For Papers

Call for submissions

We invite you to submit a broad range of contributions related to the
latest achievements in eHealth, biomedical and health informatics. The
specific focus for the MIE2012 conference is the various roles of
eHealth in pursuing benefits seen in quality of life for patients,
health-care personnel, citizens and the society.

We encourage you to submit a contribution about methodologies and
applications, successful stories or lessons learned from not so
successful projects in the health-care domain.

The MIE2012 Scientific Programme Committee (SPC) invites you to submit
contributions in form of:

- Full papers
- Posters
- Panels
- Workshops
- Short communications
- Tutorials

Moreover the MIE2012 'Village of the Future' invites proposals for
presentation of national, regional and European projects and
initiatives demonstrating quality improvements in the form of
materialized project ideas and innovations. The SPC encourages project
leaders from both research institutions and companies to send
proposals for active participation.

Each type of submission is described in detail below. Please observe
that an individual can act as submitting author for only one
contribution within each specific submission type.

poster, collaborative session, participation in the Mash-Up Marathon
to integrate eHealth applications or other forms of expressing the
future. The village is open to all "citizens", with a focus on our
young generation, presenting innovative initiatives and results. In
particular proposals are welcomed based on technologies like the
Semantic web, social media and web 2.0/3.0, which contribute to new
ways of health-care delivery and guiding citizens, patients and health
professionals towards to higher quality of life. A special area of the
agora will be devoted to the European eHealth Education Alliance
initiative to facilitate exchange and creation of programs for e-
health strategy, social software, wiki-education for eHealth, capacity
building and education of the workforce and citizens in eHealth. The
results will be linked to the Summit of the European and US alliances'
effort to develop eHealth policy imperatives, planned to take place
during the MIE2012.

The final structure of the "Village of the Future" will be based on
the accepted contributions. Village participants are invited to submit
their ideas as a proposals using the IOS Press template and include:
