Forthcoming Events – Post No. 300

To mark the 300th post since the start of this new format IMIA News, we highlight some of the major health and biomedical events to be offered by IMIA and its members and other constituent parts over the next few years. These offer opportunities for academics, researchers, scientists and other members of the international community to come together to share experiences and further develop the practice and science of our field. This highlighting should not be taken to mean that we place any less value on the events that are not mentioned here – many IMIA Member Societies, Working Groups, etc. hold regular events that appeal to local or regional members, or to those with focus on particular sub-domains.

Among the major events – at many of which the IMIA Board and/or General Assembly will meet – are:

INFOLAC2011 – May 17-19, 2011 in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico – http://www.infolac2011.org

MIE2011 – August 28-31, 200 in Oslo, Norway – http://www.mie2011.org

NI2012 – June 23-27, 2012 in Montreal, Canada – http://www.ni2012.org
