Health 2.0 Europe 2011 is Accepting Speaker Submissions

Following the success of the first event in Paris in April 2010, the 2nd annual Health 2.0 Europe will showcase the best of Europe's user-generated healthcare and reconvene over 500 leaders and stakeholders in Web 2.0 for health. Participants will include IT solution providers, health professionals, patient organizations, health authorities, public and private insurance organizations, medical device and pharmaceutical companies, telecom groups, VC and financiers, policy makers, and academics.

If you are in the Health 2.0 space and offer a technology or service that is particularly innovative or provides a solution to a major healthcare challenge, Health 2.0 wants to hear from you! In general, most of the programming consists of panels with speakers showing their technology in 4-minute demos, and commentators reflecting on what they hear and how it will fit into healthcare from their perspective, followed by interaction with the demonstrators.

Themes for 2011 will include:

  • Patient and physician social networks
  • Search & content
  • Communities and data production
  • Consumer and provider tools
  • Health promotion, behavior change and Wellness 2.0
  • Data utility layer & tools
  • System integration
  • Health 2.0 financing
  • Cloud computing and unplatforms

More information on the programme is available at http://www.health2con.com/europe/.

Decisions on panelists are made by the organizers in close consultation with our Advisory Board. It is a highly selective process as the topic of the conference, audience interest, diversity of presenters and format of panels are taken into consideration.
