Special attention will be given to the 'Digital Patient' as well as 'health forecasts' and this year there will be a dedicated conference track on ‘Active and Healthy Ageing'. VPH2012 aims at reaching outside of the VPH community to other equally important communities: systems biology and genomics. In this respect, our vision is to have a conference that truly encompasses all possible scales to model physio/pathology with a clear ICT focus.
- Abstract submission: 29 February 2012 (details below)

The Virtual Physiological Human Network of Excellence (VPH NoE) will hold the second of the series of VPH Conferences, (VPH 2012), on 18th – 20th September 2012.
VPH2012 is an international conference on computational biomedicine, with focus on the integrative aspects of VPH. VPH2012 aims at reaching outside of the VPH community to other relevant communities including systems biology. The vision is to have a conference that truly encompasses all possible scales to model physio/pathology with a clear ICT focus.
Four parallel sessions will be held on all days with talks and dedicated poster sessions. Additionally, there will be parallel workshops in relevant areas not addressed in the main scientific tracks. There are two types of workshops which will be held in VPH2012. Hands-on workshops have invited speakers, their aim is to give attendees a deeper knowledge and familiarity of a specific set of tools or concepts, and will have a more interactive format. Sessional workshops are those which focus on a particular theme with keynote speakers and will also have an open call for abstracts.
The best VPH2012 papers will be published in Interface Focus in a special themed issue on Integrative Approaches to Computational Biomedicine. The conference is now calling for abstract proposals.
CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
Submissions should be based on one (or more) of the conference themes (see below) or on one of the three sessional workshops. Contributors are asked to submit abstracts rather than full papers. For more information please go to the VPH 2012 website.
