This conference will be different:

The 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  ...
