Great Health IT Conference Coming Up!
There are lots of conferences that take place in the USA and around the world on healthcare IT and medical device ecosystems — terrific gatherings like HIMSS and various other venues that cater to more about “what” you should be doing and not “how” to do the best implementations. If you’re a practitioner, engineer, project leader, or someone who’s responsible for actually creating software or hardware in the medical domain you’ll want to consider attending the IEEE International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems in Bristol England June 27 through 30. A sister conference, HealthGrid, is taking place at the same time (what would now be more aptly named “Health Cloud”).
A call for papers is open until April 20.
It’s a pretty technical conference that covers some wide areas of interest; take a look at the topics that are likely to be covered:
- Software Systems in Medicine
- Computer-Aided Diagnosis
- Knowledge Discovery & Data Mining
- Knowledge-Based Systems and Techniques
- Decision Support Systems
- Medical Devices with Embedded Computers
- Signal and Image Processing in Medicine
- Medical Image Segmentation & Compression
- Machine Vision in Medicine
- Medical Robotics
- Network and Telemedicine Systems
- Medical Databases & Information Systems
- Web-Based Delivery of Medical Information
- Multimedia Biomedical Databases
- Content Analysis of Biomedical Image Data
- Handheld Computing Applications in Medicine
- Bioinformatics in Medicine
- Pervasive Health Systems and Services
