Medicine 2.0™ is an international conference on Web 2.0 applications in health and medicine, organized and co-sponsored by the Journal of Medical Internet Research, the International Medical Informatics Association, the Centre for Global eHealth Innovation, CHIRAD, and a number of other sponsoring organizations.
This conference, to be held in Toronto from 4th to 5th September 2008, is a successor of a highly successful “Mednet 2006: 11th World Congress on Internet in Medicine” Congress. It will be smaller and oriented only on Web 2.0 in medicine. However, these are not the only differences, because the organizing committee decided to completely change the peer review selection process of the submitted papers.
Consistent with the Web 2.0 theme of the conference, we are experimenting with a new “Digg”-like open peer-review mechanism, allowing any user to vote for submitted abstracts using a simple thumbs-up/thumbs-down rating system, with the additional ability for anyone to sign up as a peer-reviewer for a submitted abstract.
Go ahead and vote for your favorite papers.
