Keynotes


On the first day of the conference, we are fortunate to have two keynote speakers long associated with HealthGrid conferences; Professor Richard Sinnott from Melbourne and Dr Vincent Breton from the Institut des Grilles of the CNRS in France. Vincent is this year's Jean-Claude Healy lecturer.

The conference continues on Tuesday morning with Mary Kratz from the University of Michigan and PEPFAR, the US President's Programme for AIDS Relief, and at the end of the afternoon a sponsored HealthGrid keynote by Steve Brewer of the EGI. The after-dinner speaker on Tuesday evening will be Professor Peter Barham of Bristol University.

On Wednesday, the day begins with a keynote by Professor Harold Thimbleby, Swansea, whose research on usability has shed new light on "medical errors". Finally, two medical experts, Professor Iain Buchan, University of Manchester, and Professor Frances Griffiths, University of Warwick, bring their own deep and very distinct interdisciplinary understanding of issues facing modern medicine and healthcare provision.

Everyone attending the conference is welcome to come along. The terrace offers an excellent panoramic view of Brunel's famous Clifton Suspension Bridge as well as the local countryside. The bar serves a wide variety of beers, wine and spirits and pub food.

On-site accommodation for guests of delegates


Please note that all on-site accommodation is in single rooms. We have now made provision so that a second room can be booked in the Frenchay Student Village through the online store for guests of registered delegates. However, this will be a more expensive option than sharing a room in most local hotels.

Deadline extension


We have received several requests for an extension to the deadline. Although the schedule is tight, we are able to extend the deadline to May 4th, provided you have submitted a brief abstract by April 30th so as to enable us to plan the reviews of your paper.
