HIBIT 2011

Scope of the Symposium


The 6th International Symposium on Health Informatics and Bioinformatics, (HIBIT 2011) will be held and organized in Izmir, Turkey. The HIBIT series has been initiated by the Informatics Institute at METU in 2005.
HIBIT aims to bring together academicians, researchers and practitioners from the general area of health or medical informatics and bioinformatics or computational biology. Biomathematics, statistics and other related and supporting fields are also welcome and have contributed papers and posters in the past.

Another aim of HIBIT is to create synergy between academicians performing basic research and those that are users of computational methods. In this HIBIT aims to create an interface with the technology sector such that research can turn into marketable developments.

HIBIT provides a forum for discussion, exploration and development of both theoretical and practical aspects of health informatics and bioinformatics and a chance to network with others working and researching in this or related areas.

Finally, we aim to provide a platform for researchers which, like us, wonder why conferences in Europe require up to 600€ registration fee.
