Submissions of professional papers for the 6th Annual International HealthGrid Conference, scheduled for 2-4 June 2008, are due by this weekend.

The HealthGrid conference, “Global HealthGrid: eScience Meets Biomedical Informatics,” will be held in Chicago, U.S., and will focus on the transformation of biomedical research, education and medical care through the application of grid technologies.

Research papers of up to 5,000 words involving applications that demonstrate grid-based resources are encouraged.

The best papers will be selected for oral presentation at the annual conference. Criteria for presentation will be based on the content of the submitted papers, the originality of the contribution, technical quality, style and clarity of presentation, and importance to the field of advancing biomedical informatics and eScience.

Presentations that incorporate grid-based demonstrations are also encouraged.

Early bird registration for the conference is available until 13 April 2008.
