Share Print

The Covid-19 pandemic is a force majeure situation, which is outside of our control. Due to the critical pandemic situation in Europe generally, and in Switzerland in particular, the Swiss Federal authorities have enforced strict regulation to limit the propagation of the coronavirus, among them a ban on all meetings of more than 100 people.

Consequently, Medical Informatics Europe 2020, which was scheduled April 28th to May 1st, is definitively cancelled.

The Proceedings of the conference will be published, as planned, with all scientific contributions that were accepted by the scientific program committee for publications.

We thank everyone in advance for your understanding and wish you, your families, colleagues, patients and companies the best during this critical time.

Digital personalized health
In the last 15 years, the worlds of medicine and of information technologies have completely changed. Digitalization was seen as a nice to have in medicine, it is becoming a fundamental game changer in the era of Digital Personalized Health and Medicine. Massive amount of data from the molecular biology associated with massive data about the environment, behavior and lifestyle, exposition factors and personal records, the rise of unprecedent processing power and artificial intelligence have changed the face of medicine. The MIE2020 conference is a unique opportunity to meet experts from all involved fields, from deep learning or genomics, up to human factors, ethical and societal aspects.

Special tracks with European projects
In this 30th edition, we will have special tracks with European projects such as FAIR4HEALTH and standardizing organizations such as HL7 and SNOMED International to discuss the building of global frameworks to improve data usability to support life science research, cross borders, cross systems, cross languages.
Specific tracks devoted to encryption, blockchain and privacy-conscious data sharing, along with ethical and legal experts, will investigate and propose practical way to support innovation to alleviate the burden of diseases such as cancers or promote bio-surveillance networks for example.

This conference is organized in partnership with the World Health Organization (WHO), the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the State of Geneva (Geneva), the University of Geneva (UNIGE) and the University Hospitals of Geneva (HUG).
