This biannual conference series grew out of the FP7 Virtual Physiological Human Network of Excellence. It has become one of the major instruments for maintaining the coherence and momentum of the highly multidisciplinary VPH community. The members of the VPH community subscribe to the view that a substantially improved healthcare can only be achieved through converged efforts of the life sciences, the mathematical sciences and engineering. The next conference will be in Norway, Trondheim, September 9-12, 2014. More info on the VPH conferencence website.
