Medicine 2.0’12 Conference: March 07 is Abstract Submission Deadline

The abstract submission deadline for Medicine 2.0’12 is now only 3 days away – submissions close on 07 March – full information about the Call for Abstracts is available via the conference website at http://tinyurl.com/med2012call

There will be five ways to present work at Medicine 2.0 ’12 Boston – the Call for Abstracts, seeks work to be presented as Presentations, Interactive Demos, Tabletop (Tradeshow) Presentation, Startup Pitches and Panel Proposals. Medicine 2.0 ’12, aka the 5th World Congress on Social Media, Mobile Apps, and Internet/Web2.0 in Health and Medicine, will be hosted in Boston at Harvard Medical School, will once again be very international and contain a unique mix of traditional academic/research, practice and business presentations, keynote presentations, and panel discussions to discuss emerging technologies in health and medicine, with an emphasis on Internet-based, social media, and mobile technologies.

Among the many topics are: Building virtual communities and social networking applications for health professionals, patients and consumers;  Science 2.0, collaborative biomedical research, academic / scholarly communication, publishing and peer review; Digital Disease Detection and Biosurveillance using Twitter and other social media/mhealth/Internet sources; The Quantified Self: tracking behavior and health; Semantic Web (“Web 3.0”) applications; Web 2.0 approaches for clinical practice, clinical research, quality monitoring; mHealth Applications; Ubiquitous, pervasive ehealth; and much more.

The conference strives for an interdisciplinary mix of presenters from different countries and disciplines (e.g. health care, social sciences, computer science, engineering, or business) and with a different angle (research, practice, and business).

IMIA continues to support this event, and the IMIA Medicine 2.0 Award will be administered by the IMIA Social Media Working Group. A new mhealth award, sponsored by iMedicalApps, will be made for the best paper on mobile health presented at the 2012 Medicine 2.0 conference in Boston.

Confirmed keynote speakers include Jamie Heywood from PatientsLikeMe and John Brownstein from Healthmap.
