It’s Medinfo2010 Month: 200th Post

September 2010 is finally here, the month for Medinfo2010, IMIA’s triennial world congress. So, it is fitting that this, our 200th post on this particular news channel, should be about Medinfo2010, given the importance that Medinfo has in the IMIA calendar.

As all readers of this news blog should know by now, Cape Town, South Africa will host the 13th International Congress on Medical Informatics – Medinfo2010 – from the 12 – 15 of September 2010. This will be the first African Medinfo, and provides the opportunity for health informaticians from around the world – whether they are actively involved in IMIA and its member and associated organisations or not – to come together to exchange information, meet old friends, make new contacts and collaborations, and generally develop their own professional knowledge and the field of health informatics.

The Medinfo2010 programme is on the website; the event features keynotes, papers, posters, workshops, panels and tutorials. For those unable to be there in person, there will be a raft of opportunities for interaction through social media; some of these are linked/grouped at http://grou.ps/medinfo2amia2010 while many other individuals will be blogging, tweeting and otherwise talking about the event. Medinfo2010 also has a Facebook event page – http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=227856279989 and a LinkedIn group – http://www.linkedin.com/groups?gid=3175343 and is on Twitter @medinfo2010

Medinfo events are not just about the conference, the learning and the networking. They also provide an opportunity for IMIA’s annual business meetings of its Board and General Assembly, for meetings of its Working Groups and Nursing Special Interest Group, and many other meetings associated with IMIA’s day-to-day activities.

We look forward to seeing many colleagues at Medinfo2010 – but if you cannot be there, then think about attending one of the other events related to IMIA and/or its WG/SIG, regional groups, member societies, etc. These include:

MIE2011 in Oslo, Norway: August 2011 – www.mie2011.org

NI2012 in Montreal, Canada: June, 2012 – www.ni2012.org

Medinfo2013 in Copenhagen, Denmark: September 2013
