The 25th IEEE International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems


CBMS2012 will be held on 20-22 June 2012 at the University Campus Bio-Medico of Rome, Italy. It is technically sponsored by the IEEE, the Italian Chapter of the IAPR (GIRPR), the Italian Chapters of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society,  the Italian Chapters of the  IEEE Computer Society, and the University Campus Bio-Medico of Rome.

CBMS 2012 will provide an international forum for discussing the latest developments in the field of computational medicine, biomedical informatics and related fields. The conference is part of the Bioengineering Week, an exciting week totally dedicated to bioengineering research, featuring a unique concentration of several scientific, cultural and educational events, mostly taking place in Rome (www.bioengweek2012.org).
The scientific program of CBMS 2012 will consist of regular and special track sessions with technical contributions reviewed and selected by an international programme committee, as well as keynote talks and tutorials given by leading experts in their fields. The symposium is the premier conference for computational medicine, providing a mechanism for the exchange of ideas and technologies between academics and industrial scientists, and attracts a worldwide audience. Regular and special track presentations will cover a broad range of issues in (but not limited to) the following areas:

• Software Systems in Medicine
• Network and Telemedicine Systems
• Web-Based Delivery of Medical Information    
• Medical Databases & Information Systems
• Knowledge Discovery & Data Mining    
• Computer-Aided Diagnosis
• Knowledge-Based Systems and Techniques
• Content Analysis of Biomedical Image Data
• Decision Support Systems    
• Multimedia Biomedical Databases
• Medical Devices with Embedded Computers
• Medical Image Segmentation & Compression
• Signal and Image Processing in Medicine
• Handheld Computing Applications in Medicine
• e-Health    
• Pervasive Health Systems and Services
• Machine Vision in Medicine     
• Medical Robotics
• Health and Wellbeing
• Medical Data Streams
• Learning methods for skewed data

CBMS 2012 invites original unpublished contributions that are not submitted concurrently to a journal or another conference. Prospective authors are expected to submit their contributions to one ST or to the general track if none of the special tracks is relevant.
Please see submission guidelines for further details.

The Italian Chapter of the IAPR (International Association for Pattern Recognition) offers a prize to a young researcher in memory of prof. Ezio Catanzariti. The prize will consist of 500 € and a plaque.

Best papers will be invited to submit extended versions for Special Issues of the following:
Journal of Behaviour and Information Technology (Taylor & Francis), Journal of Computers and Biology in Medicine (Elsevier), or Transactions on Information Technology in Biomedicine (IEEE).

CBMS 2012 will feature a general track and twelve special tracks:
ST01-Bioinformatics: towards personalized medicine from omics data
ST02-Collaboration and Technology-Mediated Communication in Healthcare
ST03- Image processing for ophthalmology: challenges in retinal analysis and related fields
