Call for Papers (PDF, TXT)

The 21th IEEE International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems (CBMS 2008) is intended to provide an international forum for discussing the latest results in the field of computational medicine. The scientific program of CBMS 2008 will consist of invited keynote talks given by leading scientists in the field, and regular and special track sessions that cover a broad array of issues which relate computing to medicine.

Relevant Topics

The conference topics include but are not limited to:

Paper Submission and Publication

CBMS 2008 invites original previously unpublished contributions that are not submitted concurrently to a journal or another conference. Many of the above listed topics are represented by corresponding Special Tracks, while others are solely covered by the general CBMS track. Prospective authors are expected to submit their contributions to one of the corresponding Special Tracks or to the general track if none of the special tracks is relevant. Please, see the list of Special Tracks being organized.

Each contribution must be prepared following the IEEE two-column format, and should not exceed the length of 6 (six) Letter-sized pages; the authors may use LaTeX or Microsoft Word templates when preparing their drafts. The papers should be submitted electronically before the paper submission deadline using EasyChair online submission system. All submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least three reviewers. Each Program Committee of the corresponding Special Track or General Track will be responsible for the final decision about acceptance of papers submitted to that track. All accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings published by the IEEE CS Press. At least one author must pay the registration fee before March 28 for each accepted paper.

Intended Audience

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.


The best paper and the best student paper will be awarded.
