Dear Colleague,

The 13th Libre Software Meeting (LSM) takes place in Geneva,
Switzerland, July 7-12 2012 (

LSM is an annual non-commercial conference on Libre Softwares that
includes round tables and practical workshops. The objective is
to provide a place where users, developers and promoters of Libre
Software can exchange ideas and information. Attendance is free and
open to everyone. 

Each year the health & accessibility workshop is held as part of
this broader meeting.  This year, it will be organized around 3
major fields:

- Accessibility, autonomy and dependency management (mobile/web
accessibility, accessible desktop applications, usability, ...)

- Hospital information system & Tele-health (EHR, telemedicine systems,
workflow solutions, PACS, HL7, ...)

- Imaging & visualization of medical data (CAS, CAD, bio-imaging,
image acquisition/processing/segmentation/registration, simulation,
organ tracking ...)
We invite presentations that address these major fields.

The LSM committee aims to disseminate and improve Libre projects
in the health and accessibility domains through this workshop. To
better target the various exchanges that will be taking place, the
programme committee of the health & accessibility workshop proposes
several kinds of meetings:

- "Solution" meetings, with conferences  and round tables to present
solutions dedicated to previous areas.

- "State of the art" conferences between practitioners, developers,
scientists and users to discuss about what exists according to the
specific needs of users, what works well or a little less well,
to talk about approaches...

- "Technical" presentations between developers and scientists. This
will allow initiation of exchanges between communities that do not
necessarily have the opportunity to meet and will maybe lead to new
collaborations or projects.

Finally, a workshop area will be available to try out and exchange
tools presented by their authors or by seasoned users of those

Last year the health & accessibility workshop received (for example)
the following projects: Chewing Word, drupal, FreeMedForms, GDCM,
ITK, joomla kaekus, odt2braille, OpenStreetMap, OsiriX, typo3, ubuntu,
VTK, WEASIS, wordpress, ...

... Information on health workshops from previous annual meetings
are available on :
You will be able to attend conferences  on other related issues
such as "System Administration" (like Nagios, GLPI, Cfengine,
