CBMS 2006: The 19th IEEE International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems

Who is Invited: Intended Audience

The symposium provides a mechanism for the exchange of ideas and technologies between academicians and industrial scientists who are developing computer-based medical systems. The premiere symposium in its field, it attracts a worldwide audience and draws together experts from many fields to discuss the latest advances in medical systems based on computers.

Engineers, scientists, clinicians and managers involved in medical computing projects are all encouraged to submit papers to and/or attend the symposium. Attendees are provided an opportunity to experience state-of-the-art research and development in a variety of topics both directly and indirectly related to their own work. In addition to research papers, keynote speakers and tutorial sessions, participants have the opportunity to come up-to-date on important technological issues.

The symposium also encourages the participation of students engaged in research/development in computer-based medical systems. A prize will be awarded to the best student paper submitted to (and presented at) the symposium.

For a list of topics relevant to this conference, see, "What to Expect: Relevant Topics" on the "What" page.
