MediComp 2017 - 4th IEEE International COMPSAC Workshop on Medical Computing

Date2017-07-04 - 2017-07-08


VenueTorino, Turin, Italy Italy



Topics/Call fo Papers

Medical care covers complex processes of the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease, injury, and other physical and mental impairments in humans. The patients' consumption of products and services provided by hospitals and other institutions forms the medical care industry, which is one of the largest and fastest-growing parts of a country's economy. Since the proper collection, management and utilization of medical information play a critical role in detecting medical problems, identifying innovative solutions and allocating resources to treat patients, medical computing technologies are widely employed to improve the quality of healthcare services.
There are a number of significant computing technology developments and innovations that are making a big splash on the medial care information manipulation. Examples of currently emerging technologies include, 1) Health sensing: There’s been a sharp increase in the quantity and variety of consumer devices, especially mobile devices such as smart phones, and medical sensors that capture some aspect of physiological, cognitive and physical human health including vital signs, medical images, videos, activity data; 2) Big data analytics: With the increasing digitization of medical care, a large amount of medical data has been accumulated and the size is increasing in an unprecedented rate, discovering the deep knowledge and values from the big medical data is the key to deliver the best evidence-based, patient-centric, and accountable care; 3) Cloud computing: With medical care providers looking at automating processes at lower cost and higher gains, cloud computing provides an ideal platform to achieve high efficient use of computing resources, simplify management, and improve services in a safe and secure manner. There is no doubt that the adoption of these innovative technologies in medical fields creates huge opportunities yet lots of challenges still need to be resolved for achieving enhanced medical care services.
The aim of the workshop is to investigate how these emerging computing technologies are exploited for creating new ways for medical service providers and their patients to readily access and use medical information and improving the quality, safety, and efficiency of medical care.
Theme and Scope of the Workshop
The workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners to share research results, advances and practical experience related to medical computing areas.
The workshop calls for original papers describing the theories, methodologies, and solutions about the innovative application of emerging computing technologies that deals with the collection, storage, retrieval, sharing, and use of medical data and knowledge, as well as the integration of heterogeneous medical services and devices for enhanced medical care services. Topics of interests include, but are not limited to:
• The integration of heterogeneous medical services
• Medical sensing technologies and systems and their interoperation
• Health data storage, processing and manipulation
• Data mining/deep knowledge discovery from medical data
• Big data analytics for medical support
• Mobile health(mHealth) service/system and their interoperation
• Intelligent integration of multiple medical service/system
• Privacy and security and on medical data
• Intelligent healthcare/decision support system
• Medical care resource management in smart medical environments
• Medical related image and video processing
• Cloud computing and process integration for medical care
• Pervasive and ubiquitous computing for medical care delivery
• Semantic/knowledge driven medical information management
