 ■ Content Analysis of Biomedical Image Data
 ■ Handheld Computing Applications in Medicine
 ■ Bioinformatics in Medicine
 ■ Pervasive Health Systems and Services
 ■ e-Health

Special tracks that have been organized:
 1. Computational Proteomics and Genomics
 2. Knowledge Discovery and Decision Systems in Biomedicine
 3. Technology Enhanced Learning in Medical Education
 4. Intelligent Patient Management
 5. Data Streams in Healthcare
 6. Supporting Collaboration among Healthcare Workers
 7. Image Informatics in Biomedical Research and Clinical Medicine
 8. Ontologies for Biomedical Systems
 9. Medical Robotics
 10. Machine Vision in Medicine
 11. Assistive Technologies

CBMS 2011 invites original previously unpublished contributions that
are not submitted concurrently to a journal or another conference.
Many of the above listed topics will be represented by corresponding
Special Tracks, while others are solely covered by the general (main)
CBMS track. Prospective authors are expected to submit their
contributions to one of the corresponding Special Tracks or to the
general track if none of the special tracks is relevant.

Each contribution must be prepared following the IEEE two-column
format, and should not exceed the length of 6 (six) Letter-sized
pages; LaTeX and Microsoft Word templates are available at www.cbms2011.org.
The papers should be submitted electronically before the paper
submission deadline using the EasyChair online submission system.
Papers must be submitted in PDF format, with fonts embedded.

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 the IEEE CS Press. At least
one author must pay the registration fee before May 30th for each
accepted paper.

Submission deadline: 20 April 2011
Notification to authors: 20 May 2011
Camera-ready deadline: 30 May 2011
Registration deadline: 30 May 2011
