2nd IEEE International Workshop on System Biology and Biomedical Systems

2nd IEEE International Workshop on System Biology and Biomedical Systems - Devices, Circuits and Systems for Assistive and Preventive Care

Hong Kong, 7 - 8 June 2019 

Following the success of the 1st Workshop in the series held on March 5-6, 2018 in Hong Kong, The 2nd IEEE International Workshop on System Biology and Biomedical Systems will again be sponsored by the IEEE Systems Council and the IEEE Consumer Electronics Society. The focus of this workshop is the system biology aspects of consumer healthcare devices, reliability, and optimization on assistive and preventive care solutions. The Workshop features outstanding speakers from Industry and the research community across the world. We invite you to attend and participate if you have an interest in healthcare technology or want to learn about critical applications, advanced technologies for biomedical systems and consumer healthcare, and practical aspects of Medical Devices and Testing.  The Workshop also includes Panel Discussions with audience participation, and a roundtable Working Group aimed at future actions by the System Biology and Biomedical Systems Initiative to foster adaption and acceptance of Consumer Healthcare Applications.

Call For Papers

Recent advances in wearable health devices ranging from general consumer health monitors for daily activity tracking to sophisticated medical devices provide a platform for gathering vital information about a user in the event of an emergency.  As healthcare service providers become increasingly reliant on intelligent and interconnected devices in every aspect of health support, critical reliability, data integrity and interoperability are important considerations that need to be thoroughly addressed. In addition to technical challenges, relevant social and economic issues also need to be solved for integrating these devices into the national health systems such that electronic patient record of individual users can be continuously updated.

This workshop focuses on the biomedical aspects of such consumer healthcare devices and medical systems.  It will facilitate the exchange of research results and development in the areas of individual systems, biological businesses, applications, monitoring, measurements, prototyping and testbed development; social impact, public sector and clinical trials.

We are particularly interested in contributions in, but not limited to, the following topics:

  • Interoperability, backward and forward compatibility for legacy system integration as well as future trends
  • Flexible deployment, self-cognizant devices and systems
  • Resource management and  system optimization
  • Smart emergency support system
  • Biosensing and biomaterials in consumer health applications
