About Conference

EFMI Special Topic Conference 2018 (EFMI STC 2018) is the Conference in the heart of Zagreb, the city where professor Andrija Štampar did his big work. Prof. Andrija Štampar (1888-1958), is founder of the School of Public Health in Zagreb, he is one of the leading persons in founding the World Health Organisation (WHO) and he was chairman of the first WHO Assembly in 1948.

There is a long tradition of education on the field of public health and following the tradition of exploring the new methods, teaching of Medical Informatics (MI) for undergraduates and clinical postgraduates started still in the 1970s at the School of Medicine, University of Zagreb. Today the education of MI is organized at all medical faculties and health polytechnics in Croatia.

Croatian Society for Medical Informatics (CroSMI) organizes STC 2018, on 15 and 16 October 2018, linking tradition and the latest achievements in the theory and practice of ICT without which effective health care is unfeasible. The venue of the Conference is in the heart of Zagreb, on the main square.
