>>Purpose and Scope

The International Symposium on Health Informatics and Bioinformatics, (HIBIT), now in its fourth year (HIBIT 2009), aims to bring together academicians, researchers and practitioners who work in these popular and fulfilling areas and to create the much-needed synergy among medical, biological and information technology sectors. HIBIT is one of the few international conferences on this subject in the world; therefore international participation from all around the world is anticipated. HIBIT provides a forum for discussion, exploration and development of both theoretical and practical aspects of health informatics and bioinformatics and a chance to network with others working and researching in this area.
