Medical Informatics Europe Conference 2019 (MIE 2019)

28 April - 1 May 2020, Geneva, Switzerland.
The European Federation of Medical Informatics (EFMI) presents the 30th Medical Informatics Europe conference (MIE) at the Geneva International Conference Center (CICG). 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).

Medical Informatics Europe was already organized in Geneva in 2005. 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. The MIE conferences not only attract senior researchers and top notched experts of the field, it is also, and mostly, a place where young scientists come to present their works, to meet peers, to network, to seek job and career opportunities.

In this 30th edition, MIE 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.

Involving patients and citizen will also be at the center of the debates, along with some European projects such as CrowdHEALTH, patient’s organization and patient-partner's groups, to discuss innovative ways to reach an active involvement and participation that can leverage the field.

And, of course, not to forget the prolific results of the public-private convergence, with the presence of the whole range of private partners, from young startup's recently born from talented young entrepreneurs to global companies active in the field of life science and information technologies.

The conference main focus is "Digital Personalized Health" in a broad sense. The conference will cover all topics of digitalization in health.
