CFP: COMPUTER BASED DECISION SYSTEMS IN BIOMEDICINE

http://www.unicampus.it/stcbms200

We are pleased to invite you to contribute to a  Special Track of the 21th
IEEE International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems (CBMS 2008)
on "Computer Based Decision Systems in Biomedicine". Enclosed please find
the call for paper.

IEEE CBMS 2008 21th IEEE International Symposium on COMPUTER-BASED MEDICAL
SYSTEMS

June 17-19, 2008, Javaskyla, Finland
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Special Track  on
COMPUTER BASED DECISION SYSTEMS IN BIOMEDICINE
http://www.unicampus.it/stcbms200
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
CALL FOR PAPERS
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Currently, the development of versatile computer-based systems supporting
the medical decisions, applicable to different working scenarios is a major
issue. Indeed, they call for careful design of data processing methods as
wells as the definition of decision rules. To the same extent, the
definition of performance evaluation criteria is mandatory to ensure that
such systems work safely and profitably.
This special track aims at bringing together researchers in the
multi-disciplinary area of computer based decision systems in biomedicine,
and to provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of their
research activities. Engineers, scientists, psychologists, clinicians and
computer and cognitive scientists, as well as, research project managers
involved in such medical projects are encouraged to submit papers to this
special track.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------
TOPICS
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
The topics of interest will include but will be not be limited to:
.        Pattern recognition and classification for biomedicine
.        Computer aided diagnosis
.        Biomedical signals processing for decision
.        Feature extraction and selection
.        Decision support systems in biomedicine
.        Diagnostic systems based on data fusion
.        Diagnostic systems based on decision combination
.        Accuracy measure and assessment
.        Performance evaluation
.        ROC curve
.        Error cost analysis and risk minimization


----------------------------------------------------------------------------
PAPER SUBMISSION AND PUBLICATION
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Submitted papers have to be original, containing new and original results.
Unlike workshops, where position papers and reports on initial and intended
work are appropriate, papers selected for a special track should report
significant unpublished work suitable for publication as a conference paper.
Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to
register and present the paper at the CBMS 2008 Symposium. All papers will
be peer reviewed by at least two independent referees. All accepted papers
will be included in the conference proceedings published by IEEE Computer
Science Press. Each contribution must be prepared following the IEEE
Computer Science Press 8.5x11-inch format (2-column) and do not exceed the
length of 6 (six) pages. Papers have to be electronically submitted via the
conference web submission system (http://cbms2008.it.jyu.fi/cbms08_sbm.htm).
For more details please see the website of IEEE CBMS 2008
(http://cbms2008.it.jyu.fi/).


----------------------------------------------------------------------------
IMPORTANT DATES
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Paper submission due: January 28, 2008.
Notification of acceptance for papers: March 1, 2008.
Camera ready papers: April 1, 2008.
Pre-registration deadline: April 1, 2008.
CBMS 2008 Symposium: June 17-19, 2007.
