| 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, 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).

Tracks and themes at Mednet 2006
The overarching theme of Mednet 2006 is "Improving Public Health through the Internet". Presentations will cover Research, Practice, and Business, shedding light on the topics from different angles. There is a mix of contributed abstracts, panels, and keynote speakers. Research abstracts contain original research results. practice abstracts contain presentations of useful medical websites or other eHealth technologies (without a strong evaluation component), and abstracts in the business track present business models, business issues, business ideas etc. Potential speakers are invited to propose a talk by submitting an abstract (see Call for Abstracts (or, after the deadlines, contact the organizing committee to discuss potential additions to the program). All speakers are responsible for covering travel, accomodation, and registration fee - we regret that we are unable to financially support any participants.
Note that before submitting an abstract, you have to pre-register).
