BHI 2019 Call for Papers

The IEEE-EMBS International Conference on Biomedical and Health Informatics (BHI) is the flagship conference of IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (IEEE-EMBS) on the topics of informatics and computing in healthcare and life sciences. The theme of the BHI2019 is “Integrative informatics and modeling for precision and preventive medicine.”

IEEE-EMBS BHI2019 will be co-localized with IEEE-EMBS BSN2019 (2019 IEEE Body Sensor Network) at Dorin Forum, University of Illinois at Chicago, Chicago, IL, USA, during May 19-22, 2019. It will provide a unique forum to showcase enabling technologies of devices and sensors, hardware and software systems, predictive models, databases, and big data analytics that optimize the acquisition, transmission, processing, monitoring, storage, retrieval, analysis, visualization and interpretation of vast volumes of multi-modal biomedical data, as well as related social, behavior, environmental, and geographical data. It will also demonstrate the deployment of BHI informatics solutions that integrate key technologies including machine learning, artificial intelligence, Internet of Things (IoT), mHealth, e-Health, human computer interface, telemedicine, bioinformatics, sensors, imaging, and public health monitoring, to achieve patient-centric and outcome-driven effective health care. BHI2019 has the following 10 tracks: Bioinformatics; Imaging Informatics; Biomedical Signal Processing Informatics; Sensor Informatics; Behavioral Informatics; Big Data Analytics and Machine Learning;  Clinical Informatics; Public Health Informatics; Precision Medicine Informatics; Disease Oriented Informatics.

BHI2019 will provide dedicated networking social events and special topics workshops to encourage BHI-2019 participants to exchange knowledge and insights, and to cultivate collaborations.
