15 January 2024: Abstract Submission and Registration are open for the 1st International Symposium on Digital Twins in Healthcare

The EU Horizon 2020 Digital Twins for Health Sciences Cluster, comprised of three Complementary Grants, OPTOMICS (EU Grant No. 101017802), Neurotwin (Grant No. 101017716) and DIGIPREDICT (Grant No. 101017915), will host the 1st International Symposium on Digital Twins in Healthcare on 16-17 May 2024 in Cyprus. The meeting is organized and chaired by the DIGIPREDICT project with contributions from OPTOMICS and Neurotwin, in addition to EDITH CSA, including scientific, technical and policy sessions surrounding the current state and future of Digital Twins in Healthcare.

With the first complex data sets and big data techniques for the development of Digital Twins in Healthcare now emerging onto the scene, the stage is set for a revolution in human model development and personalizing medicine in a way that was never before possible. The 1st Symposium on Digital Twins in Healthcare envisions contributing to a Digital Twins Roadmap towards exploitating technologies to realize, validate and use such personalized Human Digital Twins in advanced clinical setups.

The Symposium is now calling for contributions across the following scientific, translational and policy-making pillars:

  • Emerging technologies for Digital Twins
  • Designing and building data and models repositories
  • Development, testing and implementation of IT platform architectures combining computational advances, cybersecurity, cloud services and edge infrastructure
  • Clinical Translation – Industrial Uptake, including standardization and interoperability
  • Ethical considerations and Societal Adoption
  • Transformational Vision – Policy Creation and Implementation towards Proactive Healthcare

World-class research and innovation will be presented at topic-oriented sessions and problem-driven workshops. High quality abstracts from enthusiastic students and young scientists will be presented in a specially designed, interactive poster session. As the Symposium’s central activity, a specially designated forum with high level European Commission and European Parliament representation will provide the floor for productive dialogue and policy making.
