The knowledge accumulated in the past decades has proven, once again, that information flows within a system and its transfer between systems represents the very basis of medical informatics.
Most often our studies are kept within one of its major chapters, defined on the structural level: bioinformatics (molecular, cellular), neuroinformatics (physiological system), medical informatics (individual) and health informatics (population).
However, there is a great challenge, which can only be met by analyzing information transfer between levels. “Integration” became the key word of several programs included in the research area by EU countries. We selected it as the most important STC 2006 key word.
Within this interdisciplinary view, the Scientific Program Committee of EFMI STC 2006 in Timisoara, is seeking contributions from each member state and each WG, regarding different relevant technologies, methodologies, studies and conclusions, which would promote a better understanding of this still “not-fully-understood” transfer function between systems and levels.
The Conference will have four sections, according to the structural levels presented above, and the papers will be published as a book and/or a special volume/issue of a journal.
