- Medical imaging using Debian
- Debian Med packaging workshop
- Integration of VistA into Debian
- Other interesting talks
The idea of the workshop was to ask the attendees to name a package of their own and just package this. Because two of the attendees were upstream developers of CreaTools we decided to go on for packaging this. After circumeventing some pitfalls in the beginning it went rather smoothly and after about 2.5 hours we were able to commit some initial packaging to the Debian Med Git repository which comes quite close to a ready package (perhaps some split into a library and a development package needs to be done and for sure testing is needed).

Thanks for your work. Your workshop was very interesting and didactic: a relevant discussion between Claire and me for the future of Creatools has emerged from the difficulties you encountered to package creatools. I will try, before the end of the month, to fully package creatools. And for sure, I will contact the debian-med mailing list.Implementing open source Health Information Systems in Low- and Middle Income Countries – a practical review directly before mine. It turned out that by using Debian packaged software might help simplifying the issues they had in supporting health care workers in Low- and Middle Income Countries.
My talk was partly repeating some basic ideas about Debian Med from the talk on Monday because the audience was completely different. Than I tried to explain in detail how we tried hard to establish good contacts to upstream developers and why this is essential to finalise the goal to include hospital information systems straight into Debian any by doing so open the doors of hospitals for large scale Debian installations.
There is also video recording of this talk.
Other interesting talkstasks page. The contact to the creator of some inofficial package will be established to finalise this task.
Debian Science workshop at ESRF (European Synchrotron Radiation Facility) in Grenoble because it was about ETRF (European Theoretical Radiation Facility). At previous LSM events I had just talked with Yann and the work to include their software into Debian is on its way.
