The 18th IEEE Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems


The 18th IEEE Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems (CBMS 2005) will be held on June 23-24, 2005 at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland. CBMS 2005 is co-sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society (Technical 
Committee on Computational Medicine, TCCM), and Department of Computer Science,  Trinity College Dublin.

The conference Web site is
http://conferences.computer.org/CBMS2005/index.html (mirror)

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 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:

* Software Systems in Medicine 
* Computer-Aided Diagnosis 
* Knowledge-based Systems & Data Mining 
* Decision Support Systems 
* Medical Devices with Embedded Computers 
* Signal and Image Processing in Medicine 
* Medical Image Segmentation & Compression 
* Network and Telemedicine Systems 
* Medical Databases & Information Systems 
* Web-based Delivery of Medical Information 
* Multimedia Biomedical Databases 
* Content Analysis of Biomedical Image Data 
* Hand-held Computing Applications in Medicine 
* Bioinformatics in Medicine 


January 26, 2005        Submission of (3-page, maximum) paper summary
March 1, 2005            Notification of acceptance
March 24, 2005          Final camera-ready paper (6 pages, maximum) due
March 24, 2005          Pre-registration deadline 
                                You must pre-register to have your paper published 
                                in the proceedings.

You must pre-register to have a 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. 


No hardcopy submissions are being accepted. Electronic submissions of original technical research papers will only be accepted in PDF format. File size is limited to 2 MB. Use a 12-point font size and single-spaced text on a maximum of three A4 pages, including figures and references. Include one cover sheet, stating the paper title, authors, technical area(s) covered in the article, and corresponding author's information (telephone, fax, mailing address, e-mail address). Author names should appear only on the cover sheet, not on the summary. Submit your manuscript no later than January 26, 2005. Authors will be notified of acceptance by March 1, 2005 after a review process by three independent experts. Each accepted paper will be published in the conference proceedings by IEEE CS Press, conditional upon the author's advance registration.

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.


A block of rooms will be reserved for symposium attendees within Trinity College Dublin (see http://www.tcd.ie/Conferences). The rate for these rooms is euro55-65 per night. 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:
* Trinity Lodge Guesthouse, www.trinitylodge.com (rooms from euro95), 
* Trinity Capital Hotel, www.trinitycapitalhotel.com 
  (rooms from euro123), and 
* Davenport Hotel, www.ocallaghanhotels.com/davenport/ (rooms from euro200). 


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.
