Pre-MIE2011 Human Factors Symposium; Trondheim, Norway

The Fifth International Symposium on Human Factors Engineering in Health Informatics will be held in Trondheim, Norway, August 26-27, 2011. This immediately precedes MIE2011 (www.mie2011.org). Full information about the event, including the Call for Submissions, can be found at http://sites.google.com/site/hfehi2011/ The closing date for submissions for this event is 15 March, 2011.

The symposium follows the successful symposia in Lille 2006, Aarhus 2007, Amsterdam 2008, and Sonoma 2009. The symposium is a two-day pre-MIE event, in cooperation with FDH, EFMI and MIE 2011. It is also an official activity of the IMIA Human Factors Engineering for Healthcare Informatics Working Group (Chair: Peter Elkin; Vice chair: Marie-Catherine Beuscart-Zephir).

The symposium will be hosted by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and the National Research Centre on Electronic Health Records (NSEP) in Trondheim. The purpose of the event is to provide an arena for practitioners and researchers in Human Factors Engineering in Health Informatics to exchange experience on state-of-the art in the field, and thus to maintain and expand the existing international network. The symposium further provides an opportunity for young researchers to get feedback on their research from experienced researchers, and get their results disseminated.
