If you’re serious about health IT or Med Tech implementations, consider attending IEEE International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems

There are lots of conferences that take place in the USA and around the world on healthcare IT and medical device ecosystems — terrific gatherings like HIMSS and various other venues that cater to more about “what” you should be doing and not “how” to do the best implementations. If you’re a practitioner, engineer, project leader, or someone who’s responsible for actually creating software or hardware in the medical domain you’ll want to consider attending the IEEE International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems in Bristol England June 27 through 30. A sister conference, HealthGrid, is taking place at the same time (what would now be more aptly named “Health Cloud”).

A call for papers is open until April 20.

It’s a pretty technical conference that covers some wide areas of interest; take a look at the topics that are likely to be covered:

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