Summary Objective of the Paper: To find ways to meet the need for specifying terminology and developing a format to describe knowledge in specific subject areas (SA) that will be effective, easily-accessible and clear for both people and programs. This is related to terms, their relationships, models of ECG devices, filters, etc. Key Points: The use of ontology facilitates the following: - a repeated use of knowledge in SA; - a differentiation of the knowledge related to SA from operational knowledge; - a shared general understanding of the information structure among people and programs. An ontology carefully developed for one SA can then be used in other SAs. Moreover, several existent ontologies describing some subdomains of a large SA can be integrated when it is required to create a big ontology. Conclusion: Any SA can have countless ontologies, as each new ontology is just another way to structure concepts and their relationships. Modern doctors must be able to use medical information technologies in their everyday practices, which help them to not waste time on routine calculations and save time and energy for solving current problems. Keywords: electrocardiogram (ECG), telemedicine, ontology, SCP-ECG, OWL.
In the internal medicine wide spectrum the gastroenterology is one of the chapters, less enlightened by the scientific evidence. It does not mean that the practice of the grasntroenterology may ot be improved by the systematic use of the approaches of the evidence based medicine
In this paper authors wish to present an approach to information modeling and software design suitable for developing evolvable semantic applications in the domain of research team formation. The novel proposals include specialization of generic paradigm of ontological engineering, specific types of machine-readable RDF ontologies and application of temporal look at information relevant for team formation. In order to validate theoretical approach a software prototype of the evolvable web-based semantic platform InfoPort was developed.
It turns out, however, that in spite of one basic difference there runs between these two systems a deep and striking parallelism. This parallelism is so close indeed that it makes possible the construction of a vocabulary which would transform characteristic propositions of Wittgenstein's ontology into Aristotelian ones, and conversely. To show in some detail the workings of that transformation will be the subject of this paper.
It is difficult to imagine an enterprise, company, firm, an education organizations or organizations of health which does not deal with information systems. The openness and flexibility of the information systems provide a flexible and effective management. So it is necessary to adapt information system to new conditions being changed and to team up with other systems, with simulation system, for example. So it is possible change business processes, to execute their reengineering and to anticipate the conse-quences of any event and to take into account the different risks.

This conference is the 9th of its kind on the Mediterranean region. This edition will provide a forum to discuss achievements and current experiences in specific areas in medical informatics and telemedicine, focusing on innovation methods and approaches. Its overall goal is to increase interaction and collaboration among professionals from both health and information technology sectors within and between the Mediterranean countries for scientific and social development in the region. The Euromediterranean Medical Informatics and TeleMedicine conference series have provided a forum for discussions and an environment that fosters creation of new collaboration in an interdisciplinary environment. They led to the emergence of the Euro-Mediterranean Medical Informatics and Telemedicine Association and number of regional cooperation. We hope that this year conference will accomplish the expectations announced in the previous ones, and will enhance collaboration between all participants coming from Europe, Africa and the Middle East. The organization of the EMMIT 2013 Conference in Morocco has come together through the hard work of the local organizing committee, together with the International Institute of Tele-Medicine personnel and members of Euro-Mediterranean Medical Informatics and Tele-Medicine Association. The overall plans were overseen by a steering committee and the program was put together through the work of the scientific committee chaired by Prof. Francesco Sircurello. We are very grateful to all our sponsors, particularly to the Moroccan Ministry of Health that accepted to offer its patronage to the event, The University Mohammed First, The Faculty of Medicine of Oujda, The Faculty of Sciences of Oujda, The School of Engineering, The Faculty of Medicine of Fes and The MarchicaMed agency. We are also excited about the list of participants who are coming in from the Mediterranean and around the world. Finally, we would like to add our welcome to all of you to the beautiful Mediterranean city of Nador, Morocco, the Kingdom of solidarity, peace and hospitality.
The article considers the conceptual approach of creating a set of development tools for active learning methods in a form of competency-based business-game studio. Competence-based business game is an information system, which aims to give a certain level of professional competence while implementing scenarios that are determined by business-process models of the domain. The structure of the gaming studio, suggests a set-theoretic representation of business-game design process. Business game can be represented as a cybernetic system with feedback, which contains both the object of management and the management system. The game is implemented as control and operating machines accordingly. For the construction of the operational machine it is proposed to use a knowledge model in the form of ontology. To represent the automate model it is proposed to use a model of managing business processes of an enterprise. A block diagram of the business-game design process is provided.
In this work the problem of learning and development of creativity with a view to the position of reflexive psychology, akmeology and pedagogics in the context of the human capital analysis in the conditions of modern society globalization is raised. The theme is urgent from the practical point of view in demand of a creative personality under conditions of the economic crisis and at the same time it is actual, because it interprets creativity in a new way according to interdisciplinary approach. The author emphasizes that a reflexively-creative potential is considered to be the backbone factor of professional and innovative activity in modern social space. On basis of philosophical foundations' analysis of psychology of creativity we theoretically build the conceptual model of reflexive creativity and we also examine the precedents of its psychology-pedagogical development in the secondary and high education (in case of reflexive-psycological support).
Data management and analysis is one of the fastest growing and most challenging areas of research and development in both academia and industry. Numerous types of applications and services have been studied and re-examined in this field resulting in this edited volume which includes chapters on effective approaches for dealing with the inherent complexity within data management and analysis. This edited volume contains practical case studies, and will appeal to students, researchers and professionals working in data management and analysis in the business, education, healthcare, and bioinformatics areas.
This prototype development explains the challenges encountered during the ISO/IEEE 11073 standard implementation process. The complexity of the standard and the consequent heavy requirements, which have not encouraged software engineers to adopt the standard. The developing complexity evaluation drives us to propose two possible implementation strategies that cover almost all possible use cases and eases handling the standard by non-expert users. The first one is focused on medical devices (MD) and proposes a low-memory and low-processor usage technique. It is based on message patterns that allow simple functions to generate ISO/IEEE 11073 messages and to process them easily. MD act as X73 agent. Second one is focused on more powerful device X73 manager, which do not have the MDs' memory and processor usage constraints. The protocol between Agent and Manager is point-to-point and we can distribute the functionality between devices.
Developed both implementation X73 Agent and Manager will cut developing time for applications based on ISO/EEE 11073.
