I wanted HealthBlog readers to be aware of an important event coming up on the 21st and 22nd of May in Atlantic City. It's the Microsoft Healthcare and Life Sciences Developers Conference.
This two-day, FREE event will offer developers and architects the opportunity to gain insight into Microsoft's latest technologies such as .NET 3.0, Windows Vista, Office System 2007, and how these technologies can be applied in industry solutions. We’ll also provide a look at many of the upcoming Microsoft technologies and strategies, such as Visual Studio “Orcas”, Longhorn Server, and Microsoft’s Web 2.0 and Live initiatives.
The event will be highly technical with a strong combination of technology and industry focus, and is targeted primarily at developers and architects who are building solutions in the Health and Life Sciences industry. We will feature distinguished speakers from the industry who will specifically discuss the core development challenges that we all face in areas such as Information Lifecycle Management, Collaboration, Interoperability, Security, Compliance, and User Experience – and provide insight on how to deal with these challenges effectively. We will also have showcase presentations from distinguished product managers from our corporate headquarters. Our sessions will be complete with demos, current case studies, and future visions of our next generation of Microsoft tools.
After attending this event you will walk away with best practices from industry peers, the latest tools and technologies from Microsoft, as well as information on future roadmap for development technologies. In addition, the conference will offer an excellent opportunity for networking with your peers in the Healthcare and Life Sciences industry. Register now as space is limited!

Hello Mr. Bill Crounse,
Very good resourceful site......where science and technology work together...thanks for sharing I am new here wanted to say hi...
will slides be available online for the various sessions for those who cannot attend?
I'm looking into this. I am pretty sure we will find a way to share the content with the folks that could not attend.
How useful would attending this conference be for students? In particular, graduate-level students interested in developing dissertations that address questions regarding innovative health information systems.
The list of sessions is currently available at http://www.hlsdevcon.com/pages/Tracks%20and%20Sessions.aspx
And yes, I think it is appropriate for students working on projects that are based on the topics discussed in the conference.
