2nd Workshop on Biomedical Information Management:
Data-Driven Innovations

30. & 31. August 2018, Hamburg, Germany


The workshop will gather interested professionals from the Danube region and across Europe working in the information or medical domain, such as medical researchers, medical doctors and entrepreneurs building their business around biomedical ICT. The workshop is a continuation of the 1st workshop held in Feb. 2018. As such, the event will be more technical in nature than the first workshop. The goal of the second workshop will be to answer on the following questions:

  • What are the prominent technological solutions to the problems identified during the first workshop?
  • What recent insights from Machine Learning, Data Mining and Natural Language Processing can be used to innovate in the biomedical information management?

Besides the invited speakers, the workshop will feature regular participants from the Danube states who are interested in the subject of biomedical information management and keen to establish a new project in this area.
