MMVR19 / NextMed Call for Presentations Open

The Call for Presentations has been announced for the “MMVR19 / NextMed” (Medicine Meets Virtual Reality) conference. The submission deadline is July 15, 2011. The Organizing Committee invites submissions from researchers discovering new tools and methods at the juncture of informatics and medicine.

Presentation can take the form of papers, posters, workshops, tutorials, focus sessions, panels, and demonstrations; see submission guidelines at http://www.nextmed.com/mmvr_guidelines.html

The conference will take place February 9 – 11, 2012 at the Newport Beach Marriott Hotel & Spa, Newport Beach, California, USA.

Since 1992, when it debuted as “Medicine Meets Virtual Reality,” MMVR has served as a forum for researchers harnessing IT advances for the benefit of patient diagnosis and care, medical education, and procedural training. Over the years, its curriculum has evolved well beyond virtual reality. It now presents a wide spectrum of biomedical innovation, including:

  • Biomedical simulation, modeling, and rendering
  • Data visualization and fusion
  • Imaging devices and methods
  • Robotics
  • Haptics
  • Sensors and sensor grids
  • Human-computer interfaces
  • Medical intelligence networks
  • Mobile health applications
  • Projection systems
  • Virtual and augmented reality
  • Learning and technology
  • Plasma medicine
  • Simulator design and validation
  • Surgical registration and navigation
  • Psychotherapy tools
  • Physical rehabilitation tools
  • Remote and battlefield care
  • Serious games
  • Wearable and implantable electronics
  • Patient and public health monitoring and education

If you have questions about participation, please email  [mmvr19-at-nextmed-dot-com]

MMVR participants are scientists, physicians, engineers, educators, students, military, industry, psychologists, designers, futurists, and others who are interested in medicine’s future. The MMVR curriculum, by combining rigorous assessment with speculative vision, aims to create forward-thinking solutions to health problems.
