Dear working group and committee members,

This note is just to let you know that we've extended Early bird registration for the MedBiquitous annual conference<http://www.medbiq.org/conference2011> through this week. The conference provides an opportunity for working groups to meet in person, and also provides an opportunity to highlight the important work you are doing. I know several of you submitted abstracts for the meeting - be sure to take advantage of the discounted registration rates!

We're fortunate to have two great keynotes - Bob Galbraith and Sachin Jain. Bob will be providing a vision for portfolios for lifelong competence assessment. Sachin will outline how EHRs can support professional education. We'll have reactor panels to both presentations to provide a context for broader discussion.  In addition, we'll have unconferences, demonstrations, and panel discussions related to:

*   Educational technology research
*   Virtual patients and simulations
*   Electronic portfolios
*   E-learning repositories and content interchange
*   Data Exchange supporting professional development and certification
*   MedBiquitous standards implementation
*   Solutions for competence measurement and tracking
The online agenda<http://www.medbiq.org/conference2011/agenda> has links to all of the abstracts for the presentations - we've got some great sessions lined up! Register this week for the discounted rate at http://www.medbiq.org/conference2011/registration . I hope you can attend! Below are some links to selected panel abstracts to whet your appetite for learning:
