Conference Call for Papers

The European Federation for Medical Informatics Association (EFMI) is the leading organisation in medical informatics in Europe, founded in 1976, and representing 30 countries through their respective national health informatics associations. EFMI is organised as a not-for-profit organisation concerned with the theory and practice of Information Science and Technology within Healthcare and Health Sciences in a European context.

The objectives are:

To advance international co-operation and dissemination of information in biomedical and health informatics on a European basis
To promote high standards in the application of biomedical and health informatics
To promote research and development in biomedical and health informatics
To encourage high standards in education in biomedical and health informatics
To function as the autonomous European Regional Council of IMIA

Overview

Top Research Topics at Medical Informatics Europe?

  • Health care (17.97%)
  • Artificial intelligence (12.41%)
  • Knowledge management (11.51%)

Medical Informatics Europe facilitates discussions on Health care, Artificial intelligence, Knowledge management, Health informatics and Information system. The concepts on Health care presented in the event can also apply to other research fields, including Quality (business), Nursing, Interoperability, Process (engineering) and Process management. The studies in Artificial intelligence featured incorporate elements of Machine learning, Pattern recognition and Natural language processing.

Studies on Knowledge management discussed in the event link to the field of Decision support system. Medical Informatics Europe explores issues in Health informatics which can be linked to other research areas like Data science and Medical education.

What are the most cited papers published at the conference?

  • Implementing information systems in health care organizations: myths and challenges (606 citations)
  • Towards personal health record: current situation, obstacles and trends in implementation of electronic healthcare record in Europe. (262 citations)
  • ECG pattern recognition and classification using non-linear transformations and neural networks: A review (207 citations)

Research areas of the most cited articles at Medical Informatics Europe:

The published papers mostly deal with topics like Health care, Information system, Knowledge management, Artificial intelligence and Health informatics. The most cited publications explore issues in Health care which can be linked to other research areas like MEDLINE, Decision support system, Interoperability, Information and Communications Technology and Process (engineering). Information system is the main point of discussion in the conference articles but it also connects with fields such as

  • Operations research that connect with fields like Process management,
  • The Internet which is related to area like Certification..

Papers citation over time

A key indicator for each conference is its effectiveness in reaching other researchers with the papers published at that venue.

The chart below presents the interquartile range (first quartile 25%, median 50% and third quartile 75%) of the number of citations of articles over time.

Publication chance based on affiliation

The publication chance index shows the ratio of articles published by the best research institutions at the conference edition to all articles published within that conference. The best research institutions were selected based on the largest number of articles published during all editions of the conference.

The chart below presents the percentage ratio of articles from top institutions (based on their ranking of total papers).Top affiliations were grouped by their rank into the following tiers: top 1-10, top 11-20, top 21-50, and top 51+. Only articles with a recognized affiliation are considered.

Research.com

During the most recent 2014 edition, 8.67% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 23.73% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing at the conference. Another 11.53% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 22.37% of all publications and 42.37% were from other institutions.

Returning Authors Index

A very common phenomenon observed among researchers publishing scientific articles is the intentional selection of conferences they have already attended in the past. In particular, it is worth analyzing the case when the authors participate in the same conference from year to year.

The Returning Authors Index presented below illustrates the ratio of authors who participated in both a given as well as the previous edition of the conference in relation to all participants in a given year.

Returning Institution Index

The graph below shows the Returning Institution Index, illustrating the ratio of institutions that participated in both a given and the previous edition of the conference in relation to all affiliations present in a given year.

The experience to innovation index

Our experience to innovation index was created to show a cross-section of the experience level of authors publishing at a conference. The index includes the authors publishing at the last edition of a conference, grouped by total number of publications throughout their academic career (P) and the total number of citations of these publications ever received (C).

The group intervals were selected empirically to best show the diversity of the authors' experiences, their labels were selected as a convenience, not as judgment. The authors were divided into the following groups:

  • Novice - P < 5 or C < 25 (the number of publications less than 5 or the number of citations less than 25),
  • Competent - P < 10 or C < 100 (the number of publications less than 10 or the number of citations less than 100),
  • Experienced - P < 25 or C < 625 (the number of publications less than 25 or the number of citations less than 625),
  • Master - P < 50 or C < 2500 (the number of publications less than 50 or the number of citations less than 2500),
  • Star - P ≥ 50 and C ≥ 2500 (both the number of publications greater than 50 and the number of citations greater than 2500).
