just a short reminder that there are less than 2 weeks left to submit an
abstract to this years' main Medicine 2.0'14 congresses. The conference
series is now in its 7th year, and will for the first time in two attractive
venues: Medicine 2.0 Maui/Hawaii, USA (Sheraton Maui Resort
) , and Medicine 2.0 Europe Malaga/Spain
(for venue see

Once again we expect around 500 mhealth/ehealth researchers and developers
at each conference. Medicine 2.0 is a "bottom-up" conference, with no
invited "stars" - in order to present, you have to submit an
abstract/speaker/panel proposal.

To get inspired, browse last years' presentation abstracts
, or review speaker bios
of the 2013 congress, or download last years' program
Once again, there will be a startup competition, and several awards,
including the IMIA Medicine 2.0 award, JMIR Medicine 2.0 Award, and
iMedicalApps Medicine 2.0 Award.
