Call For Papers
The 21th IEEE International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems (CBMS 2008) is intended to provide an international forum for discussing the latest results in the field of computational medicine. The scientific program of CBMS 2008 will consist of invited keynote talks given by leading scientists in the field, and regular and special tracks sessions that cover a broad array of issues which relate computing to medicine.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Software Systems in Medicine
* Computer-Aided Diagnosis
* Knowledge Discovery & Data Mining
* Knowledge-Based & Decision Support Systems
* Medical Devices with Embedded Computers
* Signal and Image Processing in Medicine
* Medical Image Segmentation & Compression
* Network and Telemedicine Systems
* Medical Databases & Information Systems
* Web-based Delivery of Medical Information
* Multimedia Biomedical Databases
* Content Analysis of Biomedical Image Data
* Hand-held Computing Applications in Medicine
* Bioinformatics in Medicine
* Pervasive Health Systems and Services
Paper Submission and Publication
CBMS 2008 invites original previously unpublished contributions that are not and not submitted concurrently to a journal or another conference. Each contribution must be prepared following IEEE 2-column format and should not exceed the length of 6 (six) Letter-size pages and submitted electronically before the paper submission deadline either to one of the Special Tracks or to the General Track indicating relevant topic(s).
All submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least three reviewers. Each Program Committee of the corresponding Special Track or General Track will be responsible for the final decision about acceptance of papers submitted to that track.
All accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings published by IEEE CS Press. At least one author must pay the registration fee before April 1 for each accepted paper.
The authors of the best selected contributions will be invited to submit a substantially extended version of their work for the publication in a journal special issue (approval pending).
CBMS 2008 invites proposal for organization of special tracks that will be held in parallel with the general conference track. Please find call for special tracks here.

CBMS2008 symposium days June 17-19, 2008
Engineers, scientists, clinicians and managers involved in medical computing projects are encouraged to submit papers to the symposium and/or attend the symposium. The symposium provides its attendees with an opportunity to experience state-of-the-art research and development in a variety of topics directly and indirectly related to their own work. In addition to research papers, keynote speakers and tutorial sessions it provides participants with an opportunity to come up-to-date on important technological issues. The symposium encourages the participation of students engaged in research/development in computer-based medical systems.
The best full paper, the best student paper, and the best poster will be awarded.
