Conference Aims: eHealth Web Intelligence
In its 4th year, the eHealth conference is now a well established international forum with an increasing quality of academic submissions, attended by industrial partners with a business interest in eHealth, and well regarded by international healthcare agencies such as WHO and ECDC.
The specific aim of the upcoming 4th eHealth conference is research into social networks for epidemic intelligence, a new rapidly emerging field bringing together data mining, web intelligence, social networks and Web 2.0 technologies to assist public health and field epidemiology. As in previous years, eHealth 2011 will bring together experts from academia, industry and global healthcare institutions such as WHO and ECDC to stimulate cutting-edge research discussions, share experience with real-world healthcare service providers and policy makers, as well as provide numerous business opportunities.
