An informal Francophone community of medical informaticians has existed for decades and has been meeting every other year at the “Journées Francophones d’Informatique Médicale” (JFIM). The history of the JFIM meetings, listed below, shows an increasing internationalization of the meeting, reflecting the widening constituency of the Francophone medical informatics community:
Montpellier – 1988 Nîmes – 1990 Paris – 1991
Bruxelles – 1993 Genève – 1994 Paris – 1996
Liège – 1998 Marseille – 2000 Québec – 2002
Tunis – 2003 Lille – 2005 Bamako – 2007
Nice – 2009 Tunis – 2011
The Francophone SIG will help the continuation of the JFIM series by organizing its rotation and passing on its traditions and organizational standards.
The next JFIM conference will be co-located with the CNIM (Congrès National d’Informatique Médicale) in Morocco. The event will take place in Fès on 11-13 June 2014 and will be organized by the Société Marocaine d’Informatique Médicale (SMIM). The scientific committee is set under the auspices of the IMIA Francophone SIG, in collaboration with the other Francophone medical informatics societies.
