NOTICE OF POSTPONMENT OF HELINA 2014 CONFERENCE

Due to the outbreak of Ebola in the West Africa region and as part of measures to prevent the outbreak of Ebola in Ghana; the Government of Ghana on Thursday August 14, 2014 has placed a three month ban on all international conferences and gatherings in the Country. In view of this uncontrollable circumstance HELINA and GHIA Council would like to announce the postponement of this year conference, initially scheduled from 11-15 October, 2014 to March 7-11 March, 2015.
With regard to this new development the organizers of HELINA 2014 are pleased to extend the invitation for original submissions that address the use of informatics or computer sciences for universal health coverage in Africa in the following categories:
• Full research papers (completed research with mature results) with 5 to 8 pages
• Work in progress papers with 5 to 8 pages
• Experience presentations or “case studies” (reports of health informatics or e-Health implementations and lessons learned) (1 page abstract)
Submissions can be prepared either in English or French and must not have been proposed to other symposia or journals. The submission deadline is therefore extended to 16 November 2014.
We are sincerely apologized if this change might affect your plan; we will immediately inform you of any new development for your prompt action and participation.
