MSM 2021 : MODELING AND SIMULATION IN MEDICINE CALL FOR PAPERS
Call For Papers
AIMS AND SCOPE
The past decade has brought about a dramatic increase in the deployment of simulation-based techniques in medicine and its related healthcare fields. We use simulation scenarios extensively for training of medical personnel, students, first responders, and emergency response coordinators. Rapid advances in computer technologies, biomedical and systems engineering, drive the development of cyber physical systems that serve as simulation based training platforms. Such integrated engineering and scientific methods are also the basis for design and development of new medical devices whose reliability, safety, and cybersecurity are paramount for the well-being of patients. In addition, very complex models “digitally” plan pharmaceutical studies, assess potential treatment modalities, and carry out analytics on big health related data sets. It is clear that we need to strengthen methodological and theoretical foundations in order to provide integrated, connected, and cross-cutting solutions for modeling and simulation in healthcare. This meeting will unify approaches for such solutions and “connect” researchers, developers, and medical practitioners in an attempt to further advance the simulation modeling agenda in medicine.
The meeting will focus on (but will not be limited to) the following topical areas:
• Modeling and simulation in medicine: fundamental research
• Training and education
• Care delivery, outcomes, and patient’s safety
• Robotics and its applications in training and “in vivo”
• Life-critical systems
• Systems integration: “connected health”
• Cybersecurity of medical IT systems and devices
• Data science for health predictive analytics
We solicit papers to address the above and related areas with focus on both the underlying methodological and theoretical foundations and practical applications.
For all submissions, unless noted otherwise in their guidelines, go to: https://www.softconf.com/sim/ANNSIM21/
Authors of accepted papers are expected to attend the conference, present their work to their peers, transfer copyright, and pay a conference registration fee at the time their camera-ready paper is submitted.
Accepted papers will be submitted for inclusion into ACM and IEEE Xplore subject to meeting ACM and IEEE Xplore’s scope and quality requirements.
Original, high-quality technical papers are solicited for review, possible presentation and subsequent publication in the conference proceedings. Papers are max 12 pages long with single column format (see author’s kit at https://www.scs. org/authorskit). Papers must not have appeared before (or be pending) in a journal or conference with published proceedings, nor may they be under review or submitted to another forum during ANNSIM’21 review process.
All submissions will be peer reviewed by a minimum of 3 reviewers and feedback will be provided.
