CALL FOR PAPERS
The 18th IEEE International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems (CBMS 2005) will be held on June 23-24, 2005 at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland. CBMS 2005 is sponsored by IEEE Computer Society (Technical Committee on Computational Medicine, TCCM); Department of Computer Science at Trinity College Dublin; and Science Foundation Ireland.
The conference Web site is
CBMS 2005 is intended to provide an international forum for discussing the latest results in the field of computational medicine. The symposium is dedicated to a broad arena of issues which relate computing to medicine, with a focus on bioinformatics. The symposium consists of regular and special track sessions with technical contributions reviewed and selected by an international program committee, as well as of invited talks and tutorials given by leading scientists.
The symposium provides a mechanism for the exchange of ideas and technologies between academicians and industrial scientists who are developing Computer-Based Medical Systems. It is the premiere symposium in its field, attracting a worldwide audience. This symposium draws together experts in many fields to discuss the latest advances in medical systems based upon computers. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
A number of special track sessions will be held in parallel with other IEEE CBMS 2005 technical sessions. The list of accepted special tracks:

Engineers, scientists, clinicians and managers involved in medical computing projects are encouraged to submit papers to the symposium and/or attend the symposium. The symposium provides its attendees with an opportunity to experience state-of-the-art research and development in a variety of topics directly and indirectly related to their own work. In addition to research papers, keynote speakers and tutorial sessions it provides participants with an opportunity to come up-to-date on important technological issues.
The symposium encourages the participation of students engaged in research/development in computer-based medical systems. A prize will be awarded to be the Best Student Paper submitted to (and presented at) the symposium.
At least one of authors must pre-register to have the paper published in the proceedings. If you only plan to attend and are not submitting a paper, pre-registration is still strongly encouraged. This conference is space-limited, and registration may not be available on-site.
Only electronic submission of original technical contributions will be accepted, preferably in PDF format. File size is limited to 2 MB. Use a maximum of three A4 pages, including figures and references. Besides, include one cover sheet, stating the paper title, authors, technical area(s) covered in the article, corresponding author's information (telephone, fax, mailing address, e-mail address), and your preference for oral or poster presentation; or include this information in the Comments to Chair section on the submission webpage. Author names should appear only on the cover sheet, not on the summary. Submissions should clearly state the purpose, results and conclusions, and discuss novelty of the work to be described in the final paper. Submit your manuscript no later than February 7, 2005. Authors will be notified of acceptance by March 1, 2005 after a review process by three independent experts. Final publication acceptance will be based on the full-length paper, which if accepted, must be presented at the conference. Each accepted paper will be published in the conference proceedings by IEEE CS Press, conditional upon the author's advance registration. Submission in the IEEE Computer Science Press 6x9-inch format is encouraged. Formatting instructions, LaTeX macros and MSWord templates are available at <ftp://pubftp.computer.org/press/outgoing/proceedings>. You may use these LaTeX sample files. Authors should indicate the special track title if one exists that closely matches the topic of their paper. All submissions including special track papers should be done electronically via the IEEE CBMS 2005 web submission system at <http://www.cs.tcd.ie/research_groups/mlg/CBMS2005/openconf/>.
Please complete this form, attach a Euro bank-draft (payable to Trinity College Dublin, Dept of Computer Science; do not send cash) or supply credit card information for the total fees and mail or fax to:

A limited number of SFI (Science Foundation Ireland) grants are available for IEEE CBMS 2005 organizers to cover registration fees for students and for participants from Irish industry (hospitals, medical equipment development companies etc.). See <SFI_grants.html> for more information.
Trinity College offers accommodation on campus for approx. €55-65 per night. Booking can be completed online via the TCD Accommodation Office at <http://www.tcd.ie/Conferences/std.htm>. Delegates who wish to stay in on-campus accommodation are advised to book early.
There are a number of other hotels of different quality and price ranges within walking distance, just a few minutes away from the college. These include:
In comparison to other capitals, Dublin is a convivial city with a human scale and an extrovert populace. At the heart of the city lies Trinity College with its magnificent buildings and beautiful campus spanning 35 acres. Trinity College has occupied this location for the past 400 years, and while none of the original buildings remain, the College boasts fine squares and gardens and a collection of magnificent buildings dating from the 17th to the 20th century. In contrast to the serene surroundings of the College landscape, the modern city of Dublin is just outside the main gate of the campus, with shops, theatres, cinemas and museums within walking distance.
Dublin Airport is served by most international airlines and the low fare airlines continue to expand their services into Ireland. London is an hour's flight away and the east coast of the United States only five and half hours away by air. International carriers servicing Ireland include: Aer Lingus, Air France, Alitalia, Aeroflot, British Airways, British Midland, Continental Airlines, Delta Airlines, Finnair, Iberia, Lufthansa, Ryanair, Sabena, and SAS.
The history of the city of Dublin stems from 841AD when the Vikings created a settlement. They founded a City-state in 917. After the Anglo-Norman invasion of 1170 the Anglo-Normans erected defensive walls around the Castle. These have been partially reconstructed and can be seen at St.Audoen's Church. Dublin is set in a wonderful part of the island. With the sea close by (a beach only as far a way as Killiney), and countryside and rolling hills surrounding the City there is plenty for you to do whatever your interests. The City itself is renowned for its writers, artists and musicians. There are many venues throughout the city where you can hear various types of music from classical to rock and pop. See more information at <www.dublin.ie> and <www.entertainment.ie>.
