The Twelfth International Congress on Nursing Informatics (NI2014) will be held in Taipei in 2014. Dates 21-25 June; venue Taipei International Convention Center. Information is available via the website at http://www.ni2014.org (currently undergoing some updating). The call for abstracts flyer is here.
The online submissions will open on 01 June, 2013. All abstracts must be submitted and be received on or before September 15, 2013 through the on-line Abstract Submission System.
For authors that need language support, submit by the pre-submission deadline, August 31, 2013. (this does NOT guarantee acceptance; it is a mechanism to provide support and feedback)
All abstracts will be reviewed by the Scientific Program Committee of the NI2014, and reviewing results will be notified by emailing the decision of acceptance/ rejection to the presenting authors only by December 15, 2013.
The aim of the congress is to provide a single, high-profile, internationally renowned forum for research in the theory and practice of nursing informatics. Over the years, the congress has been instrumental in the advancement of nursing informatics which has made a great stride toward the provision of an International discussion forum as evidenced by the number of successful meetings held so far. NI2009 in Finland and NI2012 in Canada successfully attracted over 600 participants. NI2014 in Taipei will also present the most up-to-date scientific evidence through our comprehensive scientific program which will cover a wide range of topics to be presented in the invited speakers’ lectures, educational sessions, as well as the abstract-based program.
