The Western University of Timisoara is pleased to announce the organization and hosting of the Inaugural RoMedINF Junior Conference, on May 13-14, 2024, together with the Romanian Society of Medical Informatics (SRIM) and in collaboration with the "Victor Babeș" University of Medicine and Pharmacy Timișoara and the Polytechnic University of Timisoara.

This conference is addressed to young researchers (students, masters and PhD students) and is held in a hybrid format at the headquarters of the Institute of Advanced Environmental Research (ICAM) of the West University of Timișoara. The event is part of the Luna Verde developer program at UVT, highlighting the conference's focus on innovation within health ecosystems.

"The Western University of Timișoara firmly supports the training of the next generation of leaders in the field of digital health. By hosting the RoMedINF Junior Conference, we want to provide a platform for undergraduate, master's and doctoral students to present their ideas and research on the topic of Digital Ecosystems in Health: Hypotheses, Methods and Applications" - states lect. university Dr. Sebastian Ștefănigă, Vice-Dean at the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science.

The event coherently aligns with the commitment of the Western University of Timișoara to stimulate innovation. Students working in the field of medical informatics, medical IT, digital health, medical statistics and data analysis are encouraged to present their final research papers, progress of ongoing research or innovative ideas in the field of digital health.

The RoMedINF Junior Conference provides a favorable and attractive environment for students, giving them opportunities and a consolidated framework to present their research to a wider audience, to interact with colleagues and teaching staff from different institutions, to receive and provide feedback constructively, to interact with experts from different fields and to network with experts or colleagues from related fields.
