For a list of topics, see the Med-e-Tel 2016 call for abstracts. Submissions on additional topics, relevant to the fields of Telemedicine and eHealth will be considered too.
Especially practical experiences, evidence of telemedicine/telehealth outcomes, business cases, as well as position papers, ongoing research, national/international policy guidelines and project results will be of interest to the Med-e-Tel audience.

The deadline for abstract submission is 8 January 2016.

Med-e-Tel 2016 takes place on 6-8 April 2016 at the Luxexpo Exhibition and Congress Center in Luxembourg. You are required to keep these dates available in your agenda until notified of acceptance of your proposal (by end December 2015).

The submission of an abstract, carries with it the obligation to actually present it at Med-e-Tel 2016 (if selected).
