“Apps4Med” is an event organised for the first time by the Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS) and Computer Society (CS) of the IEEE National Technical University of Athens Student Branch (IEEE NTUA SB).
“Apps4Med” will feature workshops on Android and Windows Phone mobile applications development, a series of talks regarding mobile applications with a focus on mobile health (mHealth) delivered by researchers and company representatives as well as a 24-hour hackathon, where students and young developers will develop their own mHealth apps. This event aims at educating, motivating and familiarising students with mobile app development and encouraging innovation and entrepreneurship.
