Next year's flagship conference on Software Engineering will host the second Intl. Workshop on Software Engineering in Health Care (SEHC 10)- a continuation of this year's SEHC and the ICSE 2009 special track on Health Care. The Web site and call for papers for this event have just been published. For the first time, ICSE will be in Africa (Cape Town). The eHealth Interop Group is involved in organizing SEHC. We hope to see you in Cape Town!
