This time a joint one-day associated meeting will be held on Thursday, 27 September. The topic of this meeting will be the link between bioinformatics and medical informatics. IFIP’s Working Groups 5.13 Bioinformatics and its applications and IMIA’s Working Group on Informatics in Genomic Medicine (IGM) are working in this area and supporting this event.

Contributions are solicited that cover the interface between bioinformatics and medical informatics. Papers offering research contributions as well as papers providing practical cases are solicited for submission to the conference. Papers will be selected on criteria such as novelty, soundness and technical quality and interest to the participants. Also proposals for panel discussions are invited. Papers may present topics including but not limited to:

Personalized medicine; Cancer informatics; Population genetics; Bioinformatics approaches for diseases study; Genomics and proteomics in medicine; Analysis of gene expression, mutation, variations and next generation sequencing; Linking genotype with phenotype; and other areas.
