The 2012 European Connectathon, IHE's week-long interoperability testing event, is held at the BernExpo congress center in Bern, Switzerland. We would like to welcome monitors on the connectathon floor at 9am on Monday May 21st. After you check in and get your monitor packet, we will meet with the monitor group at 10:30am for a 20-minute welcome/announcement session. You will find your table, get comfortable & connect to the network. The testing starts at 11am. If you cannot arrive by 10:30am, don't worry, we will have people to help you get settled later than that. The testing schedule is:
- Monday 8:30-11am: Vendor arrival & setup
- Monday 11-5pm: Connectathon testing begins
- Tuesday thru Thursday 9am - 5pm: Connectathon testing continues
- Friday noon : Connectathon testing ends

To prepare for the January connectathon, we recommend you read the chapter in "Volume 1"
for the profiles you are assigned to evaluate. Each IHE domain's
Technical Framework is segmented into multiple volumes; Volume 1
contains the use cases the profile addresses, the process flow and a
diagram of the actors & transactions in the profiles. The technical
details of the transactions are not in Vol 1, and as a monitor, you do
not need to be an expert at that level. If you are reading a Trial
Implementation Supplement, you will see that the contents are separated
into Volume 1 and Volume 2 within the supplement.
If you are not familiar with IHE documentation, we recommend you view the "IHE Terminology" video in the training section above before you read the documentation.
IHE publishes its documents, organized by domain, on the Technical Framework page of ihe.net. We have created this index to help you find each profile: Summary of IHE Technical Requirements
We have put together this FAQ page with answers to questions we frequently receive from our vendor participants. You may find it informative.
