CFP: International Conference on Medical Biometrics, ICMB'2008

We cordially invite you to attend the International Conference on Medical 
Biometrics (ICMB'2008).  


In the medical field, personal multimedia data which can be referred to as 
medical biometrics are produced in 
ever-increasing quantities and used for diagnostics and therapy. The goals to 
develop medical biometric systems are to use 
personal features in different formats such as images, signals and other 
sources to solve problems in medical field by 
applying and integrating statistical, mathematical, electronics and computing 
techniques. The importance of the 
computerised medicine has drawn more and more attention worldwide and laid the 
foundation for various applications in the 

However, so far there has been no international conference for researchers to 
exchange ideas and technology advancement on 
this topic. This conference is the first of such an international forum to meet 
the urgent needs and fill in the current 
gap between computing technology and medical engineering. It also aims to 
provide a unique platform which brings the 
researchers, engineers and vendors together to discuss about both research-
oriented and application-oriented issues on 
computerized medical systems. In addition, the publication of the conference 
proceedings by a well-known publisher will 
enhance the impact of this international event with in-depth knowledge in the 
latest development, new techniques, novel 
ideas and methodologies in medical biometrics. As a result, this conference 
will serve the active researchers worldwide 
with common interests in the relevant areas who have strong desire for a 
platform for social gathering. 

This conference has an emphasis on efficient and effective medical biometrics 
technologies & systems, and provides a 
central forum for researchers, engineers and vendors from different disciplines 
to exchange ides, identify problems, study 
differences, share common interests, explore new directions, and initiate 
possible collaborative research and system 
development. This conference will significantly benefit a large variety of 
academic and industrial sectors. More 
specifically, this conference will cover the following research and application 
issues but not limited to:

      Medical Sensors for Human Body Measurement
          -- Signal Detectors (Ultrasonic, ECG, EGG, Pulse, Photoelectric, 
Pressure, ...)
          -- 2D/3D Image Capture Devices (CT, Thermograph, Optical-Visible, 
Optical-Infrared, ...)
      Medical Data Processing & Management
          -- Medical Personal Database (Data Acquisition, Storage, Indexing, 
Data Mining, Retrieval, ...)
          -- Medical Data Processing (Filtering, Compression, Registration, 
Enhancement, Smoothing, ...)
      Medical Pattern Recognition
          -- Feature Extraction for Various Pathologies (Waveform, Image, 
3D, ...)
          -- Feature Matching & Decison Theory (SVM, LDA, PCA, ANN, Fuzzy, ...)
      Medical Biometrics Systems & Applications
          -- System Performance Analysis 
          -- Various Applications (Health Care, Diagnosis, ...)

Conference Date: January  4-5, 2008 
Submission of papers: August 1, 2007 
Notification of acceptance: September 1, 2007 
Camera-ready copy: September 20, 2007  
Author registration: October 1, 2007  

ICMB invites high-quality original papers on any topic that is related to 
Medical Biometrics. Papers should be no more than 
20 pages (double-spaced and 1-sided using a 10 pts font). Each paper will be 
refereed by program committee. Papers will be 
judged on their originality, significance, correctness and clarity. Please 
refer to the conference website for online paper 
submission. The proceeding will be published by Springer (LNCS). 

Accepted papers of good quality will also be published in a special issue of 
international journal: Information Science( SCI indexed).

Looking forward to seeing you in Hong Kong! 

Best regards, 

ICMB Program Committee
