  • School dates: Sept. 17th to 21st, 2018
  • The School will start on Monday afternoon and end on Friday afternoon.


The School is targeted at graduate students and early-stage researchers and technologists in healthcare informatics.

To apply to participate in the School, please send a brief candidacy letter and your CV to the email address with the subject line "application".  In your letter, please explain:

  •  your motivations for attending the course, including what you hope to learn from it;
  •  your future research plans.

The scientific committee will evaluate your application and advise you of the outcome.

Note that only 27 participants can be accepted!  No further applications will be accepted once all the spots are filled.


Admission is free of charge, but subject to the acceptance of your application. We will provide you with course material, lunches, coffee breaks and a social dinner.


The course is scheduled to begin on the afternoon of Monday Sept. 17th; Tue-Fri will be full course days; the course will finish on Friday afternoon. The course is organized in a way to alternate lectures and practical sessions. Both lectures and practical sessions will be held in English.  

The lectures (on Monday and Friday afternoon and on Tue-Thu mornings) are public and deal about general aspects of interoperability, giving an overview about main standards, guidelines and problems; the practical sessions (on Tue-Thu afternoons and on Friday morning) will give participants the opportunity to face clinical interoperability issues in practice, by learning how to apply the knowledge acquired during the lectures to develop an interoperable clinical application module and testing it in a “mini-connectathon” event scheduled for Friday morning. Access to the practical sessions is reserved to official School participants.

Participants will have to bring their own laptops, though upon request we can loan computers for the sessions. The School Team will support participants to prepare the computers for the practical activities.

Students will have ample time to meet and speak with lecturers, especially at the coffee breaks, lunches and the social event.
