MedInfo 2021 Online

One World, One Health: Global Partnership for Digital Innovation

Virtual Conference, 2-4 October 2021

The International Medical Informatics Association (IMIA) is pleased to announce MedInfo 2021 – One World, One Health: Global Partnership for Digital Innovation. Held every two years, MedInfo is the foremost International conference for the science and practice of biomedical and health informatics.

MedInfo 2021 was originally going to be held in Australia in August 2021, however the COVID-19 pandemic made it impossible to move ahead with these plans.

To offer a platform for excellent scientific discussions and to continue to be a place where biomedical and health informatics professionals meet, it has been decided to convene MedInfo 2021 online. COVID-19 has impacted all works of life all over the world and IMIA is no exception.”, said Dr. Najeeb Al-Shorbaji, IMIA VP MedInfo. “Holding the 2021 congress online is a translation of many of the values held by IMIA, connecting experts and like-minded professionals to exchange experiences, learn from each other and share knowledge virtually will extend opportunities for those who normally cannot travel to participate in MedInfo.

IMIA looks forward to welcoming the world to MedInfo 2023 in Sydney, 7-12 July 2023, and to MedInfo 2025 in Taipei.

APAMI 2020 21 to 23 November 2020 in Hamamatsu, Japan

On behalf of the Asia-Pacific Association for Medical Informatics (APAMI) it is our great pleasure and privilege in extending a cordial invitation to participate at the APAMI 2020 Conference to be held in Hamamatsu, Japan on 21-23 November 2020.

The conference theme is “Informatics for Patient Engagement” which WHO has been promoting globally, but we also invite papers in any field in medical informatics from all over the world.

As the coronavirus has been the main medical concern all over the world right now and seems to continue for some time. We therefore encourage and welcome any new research on “Medical Informatics for COVID-19” to be presented at APAMI 2020.

This conference will be organized in parallel with the 40th Joint Conference on Medical Informatics (JCMI 40, the biggest domestic academic conference in this field) at the same venue. The APAMI 2020 participants will have a free access to their technical sessions as an extra benefit. Thus, this conference will provide you an excellent opportunity to establish new relationships with professional colleagues from various nations including the Asia Pacific region.

Hamamatsu (浜松) is a beautiful city located in western Shizuoka Prefecture of Japan. It is only one hour by super express railway from the Tokyo and Nagoya area. You can visit peaceful Lake Hamana and access the world famous Mt. Fuji. Hamamatsu City is a member of the World Health Organization’s Alliance for Healthy Cities (AFHC). We are very much delighted to have the event in this healthy city.

We look forward to welcoming you to APAMI 2020 in this healthy city of Hamamatsu.
