eHealth Workshop - 16-17 June 2011
Middlesex University, Trent Park campus, Bramley Road, London N14 4YZ

“Current and emerging challenges of eHealth –
privacy, law, ethics, governance and beyond"

A joint workshop organised on Thursday and Friday June 16 and 17, 2011 at Middlesex University, Trent Park campus, London, United Kingdom (see travel information below). Its theme is the challenges that are emerging for eHealth in terms of the law, ethics, and governance in relation especially to privacy. However, its topics will go beyond this scope, and will ask what new challenges emerge when systems and technologies change.

The workshop will be composed of presentations by keynote speakers and other researchers and practitioners. It will consist of a series of plenary sessions and panels, several of which will be handled in an interactive way. It will draw on themes which are to the forefront in a book to be published by Springer in late 2011 and co-edited by Carlisle George, Diane Whitehouse and Penny Duquenoy entitled eHealth: Legal, ethical and governance challenges.The workshop will bring together the diverse interests of a number of associations, working groups and projects. These include Middlesex University faculty members, the co-editors and contributors to a forthcoming book on eHealth challenges, and the European Commission co-financed project PrimeLife. Participants from other projects and initiatives will be invited to join.

The workshop is expected to run from midday on Thursday June 16, 2011 to late afternoon on Friday June 17, 2011. This timetable will permit people to travel while spending only one night away from home. Registration starts - 12 noon - Thursday 16 June 2011. Workshop starts - 13:30 - Thursday 16 June 2011. Departure - 16:30 - Friday 17 June 2011

The workshop is free for attendees, but they are expected to fund their accommodation and the workshop dinner.  Note: Workshop registration is now closed.
