VMW Live! - Sponsoring Schedule 2010

VMW Live! reports from all major telemedical and information technology conferences in Europe. With an experienced team of journalists we cover these events and publish special issues. The breaking news is reported the same day it happens: it is published on the Web-based news service and sent to the subscribers. The events which we select, are known to bring valuable news. Hence the VMW Live! issues are bound to be well received.

We currently reach over 60.000 people each month, mostly through the Web site, while some four hundred fifty subscribers receive the e-mail version. VMW offers a monthly telemedicine digest for high performance computing and health care, whereas EntertheGrid/Primeur, its sister magazine, focuses on the European HPCN and Grid community. We are convinced both news sites constitute an excellent platform for advertising and their live issues for reaching an even more targeted readership. This provides a unique and targeted advertising opportunity. Your advertisement/sponsorship is related to the interest area of the readers.

You can prefer to be the sole sponsor of a VMW Live! issue for a specific event. Then your advertisement does not have to compete with that of other advertisers. You will also be mentioned as sponsor when we announce the special issues. In general, exclusive sponsorship is 15,000 euro for a European event which is covered by 2 issues. Non-exclusive sponsorship amounts to 1250 euro. However, note that exclusive sponsorship prevails. The banner advertisements stay on the Web site for at least a year.

There are several advertising possibilities to choose from: banners, active links covering company topics, or other forms we can discuss. The EntertheGrid/Primeur coverage in the Primeur Live! section at http://enterthegrid.com/primeur/live/ of the International Supercomputer Conference 2009 in Hamburg is a typical example of what we can accomplish with a live issue. We produced three Primeur specials during this conference. An example of a full in-depth coverage is offered by the VMW ITIS-ITAB'99 Web site at http://www.hoise.com/vmw/conference/ITIS99. We even included extensive reports of the three forum discussions.

  • Seventh International Council on Medical and Care Compunetics - ICMCC 2010, June, London, United Kingdom
    The theme of the 2010 annual event is "Personal Health - Intelligent solutions to serve empowered patients". The focus for the seventh ICMCC annual event is based on the definition published in 2008 on Patient 2.0 Empowerment: the active participation of the citizen in his or her health and care pathway with the interactive use of Information and Communication Technologies. Dealing with medical and care compunetics, the field of social, societal and ethical implications of computing and networking, ICMCC decided to focus the 2010 Event on Electronic Health Records (EHR) and secondarily, the connection between EHR and Digital Homecare. ICMCC intents to combine in this event ontology-driven health information system design for advanced interoperability with the paradigm change towards pervasive person-centric care including prevention, home care and wellness, together forming adaptive distributed health information systems solutions. Important issues to be considered are virtual Electronic Health Records and Personal Health Records acting as semantically interoperable communication and co-operation platform for personalized ubiquitous health services in a trustworthy environment.
