This conference will focus on the hypothesis that modern information
management can bridge the hiatus theoreticus, the gap between  
scientific and theoretical knowledge in medicine on one hand and its  
application within medical practice on the other hand.

In their daily routines, medical practitioners are confronted with
individuals, who exhibit variations in the expressions of diseases with
respect to etiology, symptoms, the course of the disease as well as
psycho-social aspects, requiring the tailoring of scientific knowledge  
to personalize practicable diagnostic procedures and therapeutic  
Crucial to this process is the usability of information, extracting  
maximum potential for the highest quality outcome. We challenge the  
scientific community to present outstanding ideas and solutions for  
information usage in the context of:

Information Usability and  ...
