Call for Papers

The IEEE International Conference on Biomedical and Health Informatics (BHI) is a special topic conference of IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (IEEE-EMBS). The main theme of the BHI2016 is the “Integrative informatics for precision and preventive medicine.” Advancing health informatics has been identified as a grand challenge for engineering in the 21st century by the National Academy of Engineering. Maintaining and improving human health will require integrative and novel informatics solutions to better translate discovery into clinics, re-engineer care practices, and integrate big data of various health networks.

The BHI2016 will provide a unique forum to showcase enabling technologies of computing, devices, imaging, sensors, and systems that optimize the acquisition, transmission, processing, storage, retrieval, visualization, and analysis. It will share how integrative BHI informatics solutions can be used in novel applications to improve human health,andhowthedeploymentofintegrated bioinformatics,m-Health,e-Health,and tele-Health with Enterprise IT can enable precision and preventive medicine.

BHI’2016 welcomes original submissions that have not been published or under review by researchers, clinicians, and industrial partners from the biomedical, life sciences, medical, and industrial communities. Examples of relevant topics include, but are not limited to the following few tracks:

Sensor Informatics
