Meeting Description:

With an emphasis on the applications of computer, physical, engineering and mathematical models for solving modern challenging problems in medicine, biology and health; the conference aims to bring biologists, medical and health-science researchers together with computer-science and computational scientists to focus on problems at the frontier of biomedical informatics and technology. A goal of this meeting is that the interactions of scientists across several disciplines will lead to the identification of new scientific investigations, shape future directions for strategic research, and help industrial users apply advanced computer techniques for solving practical life-science problems.

Call for Papers:

Topics include, but are not limited to the following:

Addressing important problems in medicine, biology and health using image analysis, computer vision, pattern analysis and classification, information visualization, signal processing, control theory, information theory, statistical analysis, information fusion, numerical analysis, fractals and chaos, optimization, simulation and modeling, parallel computing, computational intelligence methods, machine learning, data mining, decision support systems, database integration and management, cognitive modelling, and interdisciplinary linguistics.

Authors are invited to submit regular papers (between 10-12 pages, up to 15 pages) or poster papers (between 2-4 pages) showing original research contributions.
