(11 December, 2006)
Full paper publication: A frequently asked question is what happens to the full papers submitted to Mednet. As mentioned at the conference, we aim to deposit the full text of all submitted papers on PMC (PubMedCentral), as "Mednet Proceedings". The approval process at PMC to do so (we have to create a new "journal" called "Mednet Proc"), as well as the XML markup of the documents will take some time, likely a couple of months.
Note that the papers will not be published in JMIR, as some authors (mis)understood. To have papers considered for JMIR, authors need to submit it to JMIR (there is a 20% reduction on the article processing fee for Mednet papers). Note that all papers submitted for Mednet are considered "proceedings" papers, so you can submit your paper to other journals (though you should probably disclose this to the editor)..
(20 October, 2006)
Mednet 2006 is over and was a terrific success. From 524 abstract submissions, 468 presentations were accepted. We had almost 500 participants from 43 different countries (previous Mednets had 100-200 participants). Speakers included internationally known leaders in eHealth. If you missed Mednet 2006, be advised that we are planning to make audio files available on this website for registered participants (if this becomes available, we will announce this in the news section of the Mednet site [=here], on the Mednet homepage, and through the mailing list). We are also planning a post-conference web-only registration option, providing access to audio files for those who missed Mednet (please fill in the preregistration form if you are interested in this, and monitor this website for updates).
(19 October, 2006)
No-shows/Refund requests: Registrants who have not shown up at Mednet please note that as per our cancellation/refund policy we are unable to provide any refunds (there was an option to send somebody else). Note that we have fixed costs per participant which incur regardless of whether or not the registrant shows up, therefore we regret that at this stage no refunds are possible.
(12 October, 2006)
Advance online registration is now closed. Onsite registration during the conference is possible (there is an additional $100 fee). Payments onsite can be made by credit card (VISA/Mastercard) or cash (Can$ only).

Presenters should check whether they are correctly listed in the program and whether their presentation time slot matches the online schedule.
Please notify us immediately if you spot errors or omissions.
Note that we will not make minor corrections at this point especially if they are the presenters' responsibility (we print titles, names, and affiliations exactly as submitted - and the abstract and metadata remained editable for the past 8 months).
As mentioned already last week, the abstract book is also downloadable in the "program" menu point and is already in press.
For those which are not registered yet: Advance online registration closes tomorrow, Oct 10th.
We look forward seeing you in Toronto next week. Safe travels!

Last opportunity to register in advance and to pay by cheque: If you haven't registered yet, please note that advance registration will soon close - after this, only onsite registration (with an additional $100 fee) will be possible. To avoid problems with cheques arriving late (i.e. not well before the conference), we will disable the possibility to pay by cheque on Wednesday, Sep 27th. If you choose this option, you have to make sure that the cheque reaches us within 2 weeks. Participants are not considered registered if we do not receive the cheque by Wednesday, Oct 11th; if this deadline is missed, participants will have to pay and register onsite (with additional charges) even if the cheque is in the mail.
The only possibility to register in advance between Thursday, Sep 28th and Oct 10th will be by credit card or paypal. Advance registration will close on Oct 10th.
Please also note that preregistration is not "advance registration" - only the latter means you have paid and you are actually registered for the conference, i.e. your ticket is guaranteed.
(26 September, 2006)
Ebesity Workshop: Various MEDNET sessions provide an overview over current experiences with and issues in the application and research of "ehealth obesity" interventions. The invitational workshop "Health-e Body Weight ("E-besity") Workshop: Issues in developing, using, and evaluating ehealth technologies for healthy eating and active lifestyle", cofunded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, is not a presentation or a tutorial, rather participants are actually expected to work (however, the workshop is preceded by another workshop "Targeting e-health Obesity Prevention for Youth: Balancing Evidence Based-Approaches with Audience Appeal" 2:15-3:30pm, same room] which has more a tutorial character). The objective of this international workshop is to bring together ehealth researchers and technology experts with nutrition and physical activity experts, health behaviour change experts, policy makers, consumers, and industry representatives, and potential funders. The broader goal is knowledge exchange and research agenda setting in the area of development, application, and evaluation of ehealth technologies for education and behaviour change in the context of preventing and treating obesity. The anticipated outcome is a) providing a forum for networking among different stakeholders for planning of collaborative research projects b) identifying the research issues and generating a research agenda and action plan.
Scope. With ehealth interventions we mean in particular 1) Internet-based "tailored" behaviour change websites targeting obesity and healthy bodyweight, 2) mobile devices and solutions such as PDAs coupled with barcode scanners and bluetooth-enabled pedometers etc., and their integration into behaviour change programs and websites; 3) other innovative software-based and "edutainment" approaches such as videogames, interactive movies, and virtual reality..
The emphasis of this workshop is to actually WORK on preparing a White Paper (discussion paper). For this purpose, the workshop will be broken up into smaller breakout groups, which will discuss a specific issue or broad questions (such as "what are the problems", "what are the risks" in researching/applying ebesity interventions etc.), prepare a draft paragraph which deals with that specific issue, and present it back to the larger group.
To be invited, write an email to Gunther Eysenbach [geysenba at uhnres.utoronto.ca], subject "ebesity workshop invitation request". Please formulate a few critical issues or questions which should eventually be a subheading in a White Paper and which you want to see discussed in the breakout groups.
NOTE: Participants from outside of the US or Canada have to be registered (and paid) for Mednet. We will not provide written invitation letters for visa purposes, unless you are registered and paid for Mednet. There will be no exceptions.
(22 September, 2006)
Information for Exhibitors: 1) Customs: Exhibitors importing items into Canada can now download a letter from customs Canada for presentation to Canada customs officials at the time of entry into Canada (a note for all those Nigerians getting on our nerves with requests for invitation letters to get a visa: This letter will NOT buy you a visa, and no, we will NOT provide you with an invitation letter for the conference). 2) AV-needs: Exhibitors requiring AV gear for their booths such as monitors or plasma screens/stands and the likes can call our AV supplier Duocom, at 1-888-338-6266, or email Rosemary Vaughan [rvaughan at duocom.ca]. 3) Supplies: Exhibitors should be reminded that only the booth space (with drapery to separate exhibition spaces) will be provided. Tables, chairs etc need to be rented from our show supplier Stronco, see exhibitor kit 4) Printing etc needs: For on-site printing needs, please see the brochure describing the business centre at the conference hotel
(19 September, 2006)
Instructions for Oral Presenters: Oral presenters should be reminded that they generally have time for a 15 min talk (including Q&A), unless otherwise instructed. If there are are fewer presenters in a scheduled session than the standard 6 speakers per 90 min session or 4 speakers per 60 min slot, then the additional time may be used for additional Q&A (at the session chairs discretion). Note that the program is still subject to change at this time, and some speakers may still be added or deleted. Session chairs are instructed to strictly enforce the time limit.
There will be laptops (PC/Windows) in the rooms, so we ask speakers to bring their presentation as Powerpoint file on USB or CD-ROM and to copy it to the presentation laptops on the morning of the presentation or during the breaks. Please avoid hooking up your own laptop as this often leads to time-consuming disruptions and technical problems. Live-connection to the Internet are NOT possible - please prepare screenshots instead.
Please copy your presentation on the desktop of the presentation laptop in the room of your presentation and do not delete it after presentation. It is very important to name your powerpoint file as follows: dd-rm-hhmm-surname where dd is the day of your presentation (16 for Monday, 17 for Tuesday, 18 for Wednesday), rm is the room (ch for concert hall, c5 for confederation 5, t7 for tudor 7 and t8 for tudor 8), and hhmm is the start time of your session e.g. 1600 means 4pm). Surname is your last (family) name.
Speaker preparation: If you need a quiet corner to prepare your talk, feel free to use the Saskatchewan Room. You will have to bring your own laptop. The hotel also has a business office with computers, which you may use if you didn’t bring your laptop. Poster Presenters will find information on the poster format in the "call for papers".
(18 September, 2006)
Tutorials update: We removed the tutorials which did not attract a sufficient number of registrants. The remaining tutorials can be viewed and booked here - all of them have a stellar faculty and are highly recommended. Registrants of cancelled workshops have been informed by email and received a refund.
The cancelled tutorials have mostly been repositioned as free workshops or as 15-min practice presentation.
New free workshops (no extra registration necessary, but access is restricted to Mednet registrants) include Internet Survey Data Management Using SAS, Handheld Computers in Medicine, and Targeting e-health Obesity Prevention for Youth: Balancing Evidence Based-Approaches with Audience Appeal. The latter workshop will be part of the larger "ebesity" workshop, which is now scheduled for Wednesday afternoon.
The (former) tutorials by Powell (Involving users in ehealth research), Su (Redefining Informed Consent in the Era of E-Health), Poulymenopoulou (Cross-organizational healthcare process automation using a service-oriented approach), and Paton (Using Flash to Create Interactive e-Learning Animations) are now 15-min presentations in the Mednet program.
(14 September, 2006)

Preliminary program: A preliminary schedule listing the individual oral contributions is now available at http://www.mednetcongress.org/ocs/schedule.php, and a schedule-at-a-glance is available at http://www.mednetcongress.org/ocs/program.php (in case of conflicting information between the schedule and the program-at-a-glance, the information in the schedule takes priority). Both are updated frequently, so check them frequently for updates and changes! It looks like we are going to have a very exciting and interesting Mednet 2006 with many high-profile speakers and eHealth leaders! If you haven't registered yet as a participant, please do register as early as possible, as we are reaching our maximum number of registrants (if you are unsure whether or not you are registered, log in at the registration page - if you see a form, you are not registered, if you see a receipt, you are registered!).
Also, please make your hotel registration early, as our room block fills up quickly (see http://www.mednetcongress.org/accommodation.php).
Mednet speakers should review the preliminary schedule and check the following:
- is your presentation listed? If not, and your presentation was accepted as oral presentation, please contact us immediately - with almost 400 presentations errors can happen! If you are listed, but find yourself unable to attend, please ask your coauthors to attend/present, or withdraw your presentation NOW (log in at http://www.mednetcongress.org/ocs/submit.php and click "withdraw". Please also contact us in case of a withdrawal at this stage.)
- are you and your co-speakers available during that slot?
- does your presentation title show up neatly – is it in Title Case (A Title in Title Case Looks Like This – Capitalize All Words Except "the", "a"/"an", "in", "and" ), is the affiliation of all authors complete and not cut-off (note that we display it as you entered it)? If you need to edit any of this, please log in at http://www.mednetcongress.org/ocs/submit.php to edit your abstract
- are all presenting authors registered (Deadline for presenters: July 31st 2006)?. If not, the presentation will be removed from the program.
- if you are chairing a panel, please check whether you have 3-4 speakers. Panels with only one presenter are usually not acceptable. All panellists must be listed as co-authors in the abstract, and NOT be marked with * (which indicates a non-presenting author). If you need to edit any of this, please log in at http://www.mednetcongress.org/ocs/submit.php to edit your abstract. Also, all panellists must be registered.
