Computational and Mathematical Biomedical Engineering is a rapidly expanding research area with the promise of considerable implications on human health and wellbeing. Computational and mathematical modelling now plays a significant role in improving our knowledge of the biological processes in the human body and the pathophysiology of diseases. In addition, it supports the development of appropriate diagnostic tools, new instrumentation and medical devices to enable better clinical outcomes.

The International Conference on Computational & Mathematical Biomedical Engineering aims at bringing together fellow researchers and academics, specialists of several disciplines, practitioners and graduate students with a common interest, to discuss the current state of the art of Computational Biomedical Engineering research.

Topics

• Cardiovascular problems

• Respiratory systems

• Biofluid Mechanics

• Soft tissue, constitutive modelling

• Experimental validation

• Numerical methods

• Multiscale modelling

• Analytical approaches

• High performance computing

• Biological heat and mass transfer

• Biology and its links to diseases

Those interested in organizing a mini symposium should submit a proposal to the conference committee and co chairs no later than 30 October 2014. Please send your proposal to Etienne Boileau via e-mail (e.boileau@swansea.ac.uk). The acceptance of the proposal will be communicated to the organisers soon after the deadline.

What is a mini symposium? What are the responsibilities of the organizers?

A mini symposium is a session of at least five coordinated presentations on a single topic of substantial current interest, in accordance with the scope of the conference. All papers submitted for a mini symposium must present original, unpublished work, and must not be under consideration for publication elsewhere.

It is the responsibility of the organizers to contact the speakers they wish to invite to participate in their session and thereby to determine the feasibility of organizing a mini symposium. Organizers should contact their invited speakers to remind them of the deadline for receipt of abstracts. The conference committee and co chairs are responsible for the abstract submission process.

Organizers are responsible for the topics to be addressed, and for the quality of the papers accepted for presentation in their session. The organizers must provide suitable reviewers for the reviews of the papers. The conference committee and co chairs will assist the organizers in managing the review process. The editors' final decision to accept or reject an abstract for publishing will be based on the reviewer's comments.

Organizers need to attend the conference and chair their session. In conducting the mini symposium, organizers should provide an opportunity for discussion.

Organizers should make no financial commitments on behalf of CMBE to any speakers when organizing their mini symposium.

The conference committee and co chairs are responsible for determining the format of the sessions and the conference programme.

Practical Strategies for Quality Improvement and Practice Performance

February 13–14, 2015 Phoenix, Arizona

Deadline for submission: October 1, 2014

The organizing committee for the 2015 ACR Quality and Safety Conference has issued a call for abstract presentations for the Scientific Session, “Achieving Consistent Excellent Performance in Radiology.” Two types of abstracts will be considered: 1) report of a successful local quality improvement (QI) project and 2) introduction of an innovative QI concept, tool, or methodology.

For QI project reports, authors should share how they were able to achieve a desired outcome to help enable audience members to replicate their results. Data-driven improvements should be based on sustainable changes in processes or systems. Authors should also clearly articulate their goal, demonstrate performance using a run chart or control chart, and describe the most relevant interventions and learning points from the project. The committee encourages submissions detailing recent improvement as well as long-standing excellent performance.

Conceptual reports should advance the understanding and practice of QI in radiology. Topics may include QI theory, methodology, tools, infrastructure changes, organizational design, programs, or implementation projects. Authors should include a convincing explanation of the link to improvement in outcomes based on sound theory and evidence.

Abstracts will be judged according to how well they meet the above criteria.

Call for Papers: eTELEMED 2015, The Seventh International Conference on eHealth, Telemedicine, and Social Medicine

February 22 - 27, 2015 Lisbon, Portugal

Submission (full paper) September 28, 2014

We are facing the generalization of digital society across multiple social areas. The globalization imposes the revision of the health costs a society can support. The progress in difference domains, such as image processing, wireless communications, computer vision, cardiology, and information storage and management assure a virtual team to access online to the latest achievements.

Processing medical data benefits now from advanced techniques for color imaging, visualization of multi-dimensional projections, Internet imaging localization archiving as well as from a higher resolution of medical devices.

Collecting, storing, and handling patient data requires robust processing systems, safe communications and storage, and easy and authenticated online access.

We assist to a unprecedented and rapid deployment of use of electronic imagery, navigation portals, positive attitude on telemedicine, distributed surgery teams, tele-cardiology, and remote medicine. Development of wireless homecare, of special types of communications with patient data, of videoconferencing and telepresence, and the progress in image processing and date protection increased the eHealth applications and services, and extended Internet-based patient coverage areas. Social and economic aspects as well as the integration of classical systems with the telemedicine systems are still challenging issues.

There are several dedicated events on these topics, usually concentrated on local problems (national), or geographical areas (Europe, Americas), as social and governmental rules may differ; eTELEMED 2014 considers advances in techniques, services, and applications dedicated to a global approach of eHealth, including a regard on federated aspects considering the mobility of population, the cross-nations agreements, and the new information technology tools.

We solicit both academic, research, and industrial contributions. We welcome technical papers presenting research and practical results, position papers addressing the pros and cons of specific proposals, such as those being discussed in the standard fora or in industry consortia, survey papers addressing the key problems and solutions on any of the above topics short papers on work in progress, and panel proposals.

Industrial presentations are not subject to the format and content constraints of regular submissions. We expect short and long presentations that express industrial position and status.

Tutorials on specific related topics and panels on challenging areas are encouraged.

The topics suggested by the conference can be discussed in term of concepts, state of the art, research, standards, implementations, running experiments, applications, and industrial case studies. Authors are invited to submit complete unpublished papers, which are not under review in any other conference or journal in the following, but not limited to, topic areas.

All topics and submission formats are open to both research and industry contributions.
