NetHealth Workshop

Workshop Date: 11th January 2020

NetHealth (Network Health) is a yearly conference that offers all stakeholders in the healthcare system a platform to learn, share and connect. Every year, the NetHealth Workshop brings together a multi-disciplinary audience from across the healthcare spectrum to share their ideas and break the conventional silos that exist in this field.

NetHealth is centered around people and technology that are changing the face of healthcare. This year’s NetHealth will cover healthcare specific topics like Novel Medical Devices, Implants & Instruments, Artificial Intelligence, Bio-entrepreneurship, Tele-medicine, 3D printing, and Investment & Incubation opportunities as well as groundbreaking academic research.

This day-long workshop is for those working within the sphere of healthcare, be it clinicians, students, engineers, designers, innovators, policymakers or regulators, industry experts or anyone else working in support of healthcare.

There are bursaries available for student presenters (Kindly reach out to the co-chairs to know more).

We invite research papers and position papers that present novel ideas for networked computing technology in support of healthcare, and which are likely to invoke thoughtful discussion at the workshop. Both academia and corporate contributions are highly welcome and encouraged.

Of interest, though not exclusively, are the following topics:

  • Implantable medical devices & Instruments
