Dear open source in health care developer/user,

please find below our call for demonstrations of the "Open Source in 
European Health Care
(OSEHC) 2009"  workshop. This gives you the opportunity to present your 
work or your use
case to an interested international audience, find new collaborators and 
potential users of your
software. By taking part in the workshop you may also actively influence 
the framework we
are trying to set up to pave the road for Open Source in European Health 
Although the focus is on Europe, submissions from non-Europeans are very 
welcome and
we are eager to learn from your experience and to find ways for future 
collaborations. We are
also interested in projects that are currently mainly focused on other 
regions or countries like
the USA or Canada to find a common ground where we can share work 
despite differences
in the health care systems.
You may find more information about the conference under the following 
link: http://www.biostec.org
Information about the OSEHC workshop is available here: 

Authors of accepted abstracts may profit from the early bird 
registration fee.
If your demo submission is accepted, please contact the HEALTHINF 
secretariat before registering.
Please help us in making the OSEHC workshop a high quality and 
successful event.
Hope to see you all in Porto in January 209.

Best wishes,
Thomas Karopka
OSEHC workshop chair
