MIE 2006 Invitation

MIE 2006On behalf of the European Federation of Medical Informatics (EFMI), I am pleased to invite you to attend the 20th International Congress of the EFMI in the Netherlands - MIE 2006. Approximately 500 ICT health scientists from all over Europe are expected to meet in the MECC Congress Centre in Maastricht from 27 – 30 August 2006.

Through plenary sessions, scientific oral and poster presentations, demonstrations and workshops, this congress offers a great opportunity for those who wish to maintain their expert knowledge and keep abreast of new developments.

In addition to the traditional topics of health and biomedical informatics, "Ubiquity: technologies for better health in aging societies", a promising field for the future of health care, has been chosen as special topic for MIE2006.

Besides the scientific programme, the exhibition area will be the place where participants can get in touch with the different companies who will display their newest systems and products.

Maastricht will be the host city of the 20th International Congress of the EFMI. The city in the south of Holland is unique for its history and its present cultural life. It is a city where you will quickly feel at home.

With its pleasant weather and holiday atmosphere, August is a perfect time to visit the city. You may consider bringing your whole family along. Part from a wealth of picturesque historic sites, the city prides itself on a swinging nightlife, charming shopping streets, international haute cuisine, galleries and famous museums.

The venue of the congress, the MECC, is a modern congress and exhibition centre. Although situated in the modern outskirts of the city, public transportation brings you rapidly into the city centre. A bus line connects it with all major hotels, and a 15-mintue railway journey takes you to and from Maastricht Airport.

Equally important, Maastricht has a hospitable population who enjoys meeting people from abroad. This certainly holds true for the members of the Dutch Medical Informatics community, who themselves are active contributors to international meetings.

Come and enjoy the congress, learn from your colleagues and meet other people! I am looking forward to your participation!
