The AC2 Committee establishes an Accreditation and Certification process across Europe for EFMI. One of the very first steps is to map across Europe all the academic programmes related to the field of Biomedical and Health Informatics (BMHI). For this purpose, an online catalogue was created with appropriate content about educational programmes, which are relative to the field of BMHI. In certain countries, one may observe that the catalogue includes educational programmes in the wider inclusive field of BMHI. The corresponding data of each country was sent to the EFMI Representative Members in order to validate the existing information of each educational programme in their corresponding countries. There is pending feedback from certain representatives. Until receiving the feedback from all the countries, we should consider this database as a draft database. Please visit the website which is publicly available. You are encouraged to send your comments and feedback to the Chair of the AC2 Committee, Professor John Mantas, email: jmantas at

MIE 2018, Gothenburg, Sweden April 24 to 26, 2018

Building Continents of Knowledge in Oceans of Data: the Future of Co-Created Health

Medical Informatics is a field of great importance and our knowledge is rapidly growing with speed that exceeds expectations. Previous MIE conferences have all been a success gathering many of the most meritated scientists within the field. The scientific program will include the State of the Art in the area and we hope that MIE 2018 in Gothenburg will be a great and memorable event for all of us. MIE2018 is a joint event with EFMI and SFMI, the Swedish Medical Informatics Society as partners. SFMI will be the organizer of MIE 2018.

More Information

In 2008 SFMI were honoured to host the MIE congress. 10 years later ware back again in Sweden with MIE 2018.

The organization will be much the same as for MIE2008. It will be a co-arrangement with our yearly Swedish conference Vitalis where the participants can select either MIE2018 or Vitalis sessions. We hope that MIE 2018 in Gothenburg will be a great and memorable event for all of us.

This year the MIE - Medical Informatics Europe conference is organized within a joint event of four scientific disciplines: Medical Informatics, Medical Biometry, Epidemiology and Health Data Management under the common title of HEC2016. HEC2016 represents the annual meetings of the European Epidemiological Federation of the International Epidemiological Association (IEA-EEF), of the German Society for Medical Informatics, Biometry and Epidemiology (GMDS), of the German Society for Epidemiology (DGEpi) and the principal annual conference of the European Federation for Medical Informatics (EFMI), the MIE. For the MIE2016 the conference language is English.

We invite you to make submissions for oral or poster contributions, workshops and panel discussions, to be presented at HEC2016. We invite submissions to all of the “classical” topics of Epidemiology, Biostatistics, Medical Informatics and Health Data Management. However, we also specifically welcome submissions on interdisciplinary approaches to managing complexity and big data in health, as well as on our three common core topics

  • intersectoral health care (e.g. admission and discharge management, patient safety, smart housing),
  • quality and performance indicators of health care (e.g. risk adjustment, pay for performance),
  • populations in transition (e.g. demographic change, multimorbidity, migration).

Oral Session

A session consisting of presentations of completed research, completed projects and methodology papers. The abstracts/papers must contain research results or project outcomes.


A workshop is to be organized by the submitters to present a set of contributions related to a specific topic aiming on an intense discussion among all workshop participants. Thus, the workshop agenda should reserve at least 50% of the workshop time for plenary discussion, small groups or other forms of interaction. Workshops may include research papers, theory papers, methodology and conceptual papers, but may also consist of a mixture of different types of papers. The submission of interdisciplinary workshops including researchers from varying institutions and research fields is highly encouraged.

Poster Session

A poster session is a visual display of completed or in-progress work. In-progress work is only eligible for poster presentation.

Panel discussion

A formal discussion of three to seven experts related to a specific, highly relevant topic in front of, but also including the audience. The panel is to be organized by the submitters.
