Excuse us for multiple receipts of this mail.

                     4th Personalised Health Conference (pHealth 2007)
                                   June 20-22 2007,
                             Porto Carras, Chalkidiki GREECE,


Personalised healthcare (pHealth) is a new and fast growing trend over the
past few years. It concerns the individualisation of prevention, treatment 
well being procedures available through the healthcare system. pHealth is
realised through a number of capabilities stemming from the micro and
nanosciences, information and communication technologies (ICT) and new
advances linked with the molecular biology based research and development

pHealth 2007 is the 4th conference addressing the above mentioned issues 
is cosponsored by the CEC DG Nano and DG INFSO - eHealth unit. As
the conference evolved over the past four years, we have witnessed an
increased degree of applications in the health delivery domain, mainly
focussing at home care, monitoring of daily activities, as well as
pharmaceutical based research in terms of monitoring and assessing adverse
drug effects. An open issue is the uptake of these solutions from the health
delivery system and the integration of drug development and use issues in 
pHealth area. This is related mainly to the redesign of the health delivery
processes through (a) the intervention of micro-nano-bio systems and medical
information networks and (b) the effect of those in increasing the quality 
health delivery, reducing medical errors and enabling care outside 
care institutions.

Thus, pHealth 2007 will form a platform addressing healthcare delivery in a
holistic approach way where we shall have tracks of presentations related 

1.        Micro-nano-bio systems & technologies
2.        Information and Communication Technologies platforms and issues
3.        Interoperability
4.        Decision support and clinical issues
5.        Healthcare service provision and future business models

pHealth 2007 aims to address and provide a clearer vision of

a)        the current state-of-the-art in the micro-nano-bio systems and
technologies, as a number of current sensors and systems for monitoring and
recording of bioparameters and biological systems measure and provide 
useful to healthcare delivery and decision support,
b)        the current status of ICT systems in terms of connectivity and
interoperability amongst the micro-nano-bio and the existing legacy health
systems and technology platforms, and finally
c)        issues related with the uptake of these technology-based solutions
the health care systems.

The oral presentations shall be given by internationally recognised experts,
while at the same time demonstrations of micro-nano-bio systems as well as 
solutions for health are solicited for exhibition purposes, and poster
presentations of scientific studies  in the micro-bio-nano systems as well 
clinical applications using micro-bio-nano systems and ICT solutions are
invited to be submitted.

Deadline for poster and demos submission : April 15, 2007
Notification of acceptance : May 15, 2007
