Dear Colleague,

The 13th Libre Software Meeting (LSM) takes place in Geneva, Switzerland,
July 7-12 2012 (

LSM is an annual non-commercial conference on Libre Softwares that includes
round tables and practical workshops. The objective is to provide a place
where users, developers and promoters of Libre Software can exchange ideas
and information. Attendance is free and open to everyone.

Each year the health workshop is held as part of this broader meeting.
This year, it will be organized around 3 major fields:

- Accessibility, autonomy and dependency management (mobile/web
accessibility, accessible desktop applications, usability, ...)

- Hospital information system & Tele-health (EHR, telemedicine systems,
workflow solutions, PACS, HL7, ...)

- Imaging & visualization of medical data (CAS, CAD, bio-imaging, image
acquisition/processing/segmentation/registration, simulation, organ tracking
We invite presentations that address these major fields.

The LSM committee aims to disseminate and improve Libre projects in the
health domain through this workshop. To better target the various exchanges
that will be taking place, the programme committee
of the health workshop proposes several kinds of meetings:

- "Solution" meetings, with conferences  and round tables to present
solutions dedicated to previous areas.

- "State of the art" conferences between practitioners, developers and
scientists to discuss about what exists according to the specific needs
of users, what works well or a little less well, to talk about approaches...

- "Technical" presentations between developers and scientists. This will
allow initiation of exchanges between communities that do not necessarily
have the opportunity to meet and will maybe lead to new collaborations
or projects.

Finally, a workshop area will be available to try out and exchange tools
presented by their authors or by seasoned users
 of those solutions.

Last year the health workshop received (for example) the
following projects: OsiriX, FreeMedForms, GDCM, Chewing Word, ITK, VTK,
WEASIS, ... Information on health workshops from previous annual meetings
are available on :
You will be able to attend conferences  on other related issues such as
