Dear Tim. Thanks for your reply. Is a pleasure to
contact you.

Linuxmed 2005 try to represent all health fields, so
epidemiology is one of this and public health is of
real important in our countries.
I know netepi sionce last years because I am
epidemiologist in the Jasovich Group in Argentina
( a Clinical Research Unit.
We are making this congress with the experience of
Cardiology Virtual Congress already done since 2000.

You must found information in these URLs:

These are the URLs from the last Virtual Cardiology
Congresses over Internet that was susscesfully.

We are working together with the committees of these
congress, LinuxMed 2005 and the Fourth Cardiology
Congress will be planed to be in the same time and
with the same platform, opensource of course

You can find information about the 4th cardiology
congress here.
About virtual conference I mean: you prepare your
lecture, following the material specification that you
would found in, and then
we upload to web in the right week in regrading the
final program.
The material we receive from author, regarding the
author copyright, we will put into the congress over
Internet and will be accesible for all professionals
that will be participating in the congress. This
material belongs to the authors and will in LinuxMed
2005 without any modifications.

But you can make suggestion or help us in your
experience to make the right decission. What do you
think that is the best licence for documents? FDL? Any
The only objetive for LinuxMed is the difussion of
free and opensource health care applications
information for over the people, (Linuxmed is
absolutelly free of charge for everybody).
Tim, We have a strong fight everyday here, in our
countries, trying to do the difussion of opensource
into government, into hospitals, into people mind,
withiout any money, any support, and all our heart.
We don't pursuit any other objectives that to make a
better health care for people that have very bad
situation here.
Please, feel free to make suggestions, comments or all
that you want to do. We don't have you experience, our
reality is different, and we respect your opinions too
much. Thanks for your reply.

I have read the information (in English) on your Web
site. I have a few

1. It seems that the theme of your conference is
only on hospital
informatics? Our NetEpi project focuses on public
health (population
health) problems, although the tools may have use in

2. It seems that you intend to publish the submitted
papers or lectures
somewhere. Where? What are the copyright
arrangements for such
publication? Do authors need to assign copyright to
LinuxMed 2005 or can
we just provide a non-exclusive license of papers
and lectures to your
organisation for publication? If the latter (which
is standard practice
for open access scientific publication), which
license do you suggest?

3. Will lectures be delivered "live" over the
Internet, and if so, using
what technology, and at what times? (Important since
I am in Australia,
which is in a raher different time zone to yours.)
