Prof. Christian Nohr and colleagues from Aalborg University in Denmark are pleased to announce that slides from the presentations of the pre-Medinfo2013 conference Context Sensitive Health Informatics, Human & Sociotechnical approaches are now available at the conference web site: http://cshi2013.org - click on the programme link, and you will find the presentations that are available (where permission for use has been given). Presentations available include those of keynote speakers Enrico Coiera and Elizabeth Borycki,
There is also a new item on the menu bar: pictures where you can see photos of all the presenters and participants (and Ross’ birthday cake )
It is unclear exactly what is happening here (perhaps Paul and Enrico are auditioning for the Wallabies), but the presenters concerned can doubtless explain …
The IMIA working groups behind the conference had business meetings during Medinfo and decided to aim at a new CSHI conference prior to Medinfo 2015 in Brazil. More information about call for papers, deadlines etc. will follow.
The Student Paper Competition and Awards was one of many important parts of Medinfo2013.

Our colleague Ronald Cornet writes: The Dutch Society for Health Care Informatics (VMBI) is organising its 30th annual Medical Informatics Conference (MIC). It will be held on November 21st and 22nd, at NH Koningshof Hotel, Veldhoven (near Eindhoven) in The Netherlands. The theme of this year’s conference is “Better care with less”.
MIC is an annual conference, organized alternately in The Netherlands and Belgium. It generally brings together an audience of around 700 people for keynotes, presentations, discussion sessions, and a dinner plus social event. This year is not just the 30th anniversary of MIC, as IHE Netherlands will have its 10th annual conference during MIC2013.
MIC2013 is organized by VMBI, in cooperation with their Belgian fellow organization MIM, IHE Netherlands, the Federation of Patients and Consumer Organizations in the Netherlands (NPCF), Dutch Association for Medical Records Administration (NVMA), Association for Informatics and Healthcare (VI&G), and Nurse and Care Informatics (VZI).
