We are in the 8th year of the annual European Medical Information and Communications Conference. This is a unique meeting organised by medical information professionals for medical information professionals. Each year, speakers share hands-on experience on dealing with current challenges as well as successes in medical information departments. Participants are encouraged to take part in workshops and discussions within the sessions. This is also a great opportunity to network with your colleagues.

The Call for Abstracts for this conference is open.
