At the time of the submission of contribution, we assumed that we would be able to hold the joint meeting of TMF and GMDS as a live event. Despite this prospect, the number of paper submissions has decreased, especially the number of full papers (Table 1). One possible reason for the decrease in submissions may be the proximity of the deadline to the MIE2022 deadline (EFMI-conference Medical Informatics Europe 2022, Nice)(65 full papers was submitted from Germany for MIE 2022, Nice) and the deadline for the submission of applications in the Medical Informatics Initiative.
Acceptance rates were 100% among the full papers submitted, (1 of 1) for contributions to GMS MIBE and 44% (14 of 32)(For comparison, acceptance rate of full paper at MIE 2022, 54% (147 of 271).) for contributions to Studies in Health Technology and Informatics (Stud HTI). One contribution to the MIBE was withdrawn during the review process, and one contribution to Stud HTI was withdrawn after final acceptance. The complete review process is shown in Fig. 1. Due to technical constraints, the figure (and statistics) do not include the withdrawn abstracts.
We wish you an exciting conference and an inspiring reading of the proceedings.
