Theme and topics of the congress
The theme for MIE2006: 
"Ubiquity: technologies for better health in aging societies" 

Information technology helps to improve the quality of health care by
disseminating and systematizing knowledge of diagnostic and therapeutic
possibilities as well as the organization and management of care.
Unobtrusive, active, non-invasive technologies, including wearable devices,
allow us to continuously monitor and respond to changes in the health of a
patient. Such devices range from micro-sensors integrated in textiles,
through consumer electronics, to belt-worn personal computers with head
mounted displays.

Such ubiquitous computing allows us to identify new ways of managing care
that promises to be considerably easier in letting patients maintain their
good health while enjoying their life in their usual social setting, rather
than having to spend much time at costly, dedicated health care facilities.
It may prove essential for ensuring quality of life as well as health care
for increasingly aging societies.

In addition to the "traditional" topics of health and biomedical
informatics, "ubiquity: technologies for better health in aging societies",
a promising field for the future of health care, has been chosen as special
topic for MIE2006.
