Comme nous le présentions dans notre article daté du mois d'août (http://www.portailtelesante.org/article.php?sid=1539), l'ISFTeH (International Society for Telemedicine and e-Health) a créé un comité étudiant en son sein.
Aujourd'hui, le comité étudiant est mobilisé sur de nouvelles activités :
NEW STUDENT’S ACTIVITIES!!!
Dear ISfTeH Student Members,
The ISfTeH is proud to announce a new and special activity for the student members:
The “ISfTeH Student’s Virtual Session”
This is an initiative that aims to promote the active participation of associated students during official ISfTeH Meetings. This new session format will allow the remote presentation of student’s projects and researches in e-health, using Powerpoint or videoconference technologies. The first and exciting opportunity is the upcoming
Med-e-Tel in Luxembourg (16-18 April 2008, www.medetel.lu), where five (5) abstracts will be selected to be presented.
To encourage the world wide participation of “Students” in this new “Virtual Session”, the ISfTeH board decided to:
· Offer free registration for all 5 selected abstracts for remote presentation;
· Offer an AWARD for the best student’s presentation: a flat rate prize of USD 1,000.00 (one thousand US.Dollars), to be used by the winner as part of the cost of an international long distance airline ticket to attend the next Med-e-Tel event in 2009
· Publish the abstract of the 5 selected presentations in the Med-e-Tel Program Guide as well as on the Med-e-Tel website.
· The winner will also see his (her) Powerpoint presentation added to the Med-e-Tel website and the text of the Proceeding published in the C.D. and Book (both under ISSN #)
