The 18th IEEE International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems



IEEE 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 special track sessions provide a mechanism for the exchange of ideas and technologies between academicians and industrial scientists and augment the scope of the Conference. A special track consists of presentation of papers in a medical informatics sub discipline or a special field, refereed by researchers and practitioners in the field. Unlike workshops, where position papers and reports on initial and intended work are appropriate, papers selected for a special track should report on significant unpublished work suitable for publication as a conference paper.

Each Special Track organizer will be responsible for the quality of Special Track papers and manage the review process accordingly, assigning a Program Committee for the Track. The final decision on acceptance/rejection of special track papers, and the number and content of special track sessions will be made by the General Program Committee of IEEE CBMS 2005 according to the review and recommendations made by Special Track Chairs. All accepted papers will be published in the IEEE CBMS 2005 Proceedings by the IEEE Computer Science Press. Papers for special tracks which were not accepted by the corresponding Program Committee can be considered for publication as regular submissions by the General Program Committee of IEEE CBMS 2005.
