UPDATE: Smartech4Health 2013: Submission Deadline Open to 21 February 2013

UPDATED 03 February:   The call for submissions for the Special Track “Emerging Smart Technologies for Individualised Healthcare” (Smartech4Health) of the CBMS 2013 symposium is open and the submission deadline has been extended to 21st February 2013.

logoSmartech4HealthInformation about the event –  the 26th International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems (CBMS) to be held at University of Porto, Portugal on 20-22 June 2013 – is available at http://smartech4health.cs.ru.nl

Current technology and communication developments, and the increasing willingness of people to be involved in making decisions about their health or disease, have been paving the way for advances in the area of individualised healthcare. The uncertainty and complexity within this area require smart solutions and systems, which are capable to interpret context-specific information concerning the patient and his/her environment.

The Scientific Programme Committee of Smartech4Health 2013 invites computer scientists, clinical informaticists, researchers, engineers and practitioners to submit high quality contributions and innovations in the interdisciplinary area of smart technologies for individualised healthcare, covering but not limited to the topics of interest listed below:

  • Intelligent care assistants with embedded individualised decision-support
  • Context-aware monitoring devices, sensors and networking
  • Home-based diagnosis and treatment support
  • Utilisation of workflows for remote chronic disease management
  • Advanced healthcare services
  • Smart mobile health
  • Intelligent approaches to healthcare delivery process
  • Preventive and health screening services at distance
  • Cloud-based/SOA technologies for individualised healthcare
  • Individualised user interfaces, visualisation and patient-device interaction models
  • Quality evaluation criteria and evidence-based frameworks

Deadline for submissions    February 21, 2013
Notification of acceptance     March 31, 2013
Camera-ready manuscripts          May 1, 2013
Smartech4Health (CBMS)       June 20-22, 2013
