The 18th IEEE Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems

Trinity College Dublin
June 23-24, 2005

Deadline for submission of special track proposals is November 15, 2004

The IEEE CBMS 2005 Ogranising Committee invites proposals for Special Tracks for the 2005 IEEE Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems, to be held at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, June 23-24, 2005. A special track usually consists of presentation of papers in a medical informatics sub discipline or a special field, refereed by researchers and practitioners in the field. Unlike workshops, where position papers and reports on initial and intended work are appropriate, papers selected for a special track should report on significant unpublished work suitable for publication as a conference paper.

CBMS 2005 is co-sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society (Technical Committee on Computational Medicine, TCCM), and Department of Computer Science, Trinity College Dublin. More information on IEEE CBMS 2005 may be found on the conference web site: http://conferences.computer.org/CBMS2005/index.html.
If you are interested in proposing a special track, please send us a proposal as described below, by the deadline. The CBMS Organising Committee will respond to you on the acceptance of your proposal by December 15, 2004. We expect you to follow this timetable to provide sufficient time for publicity of the special tracks.  

Each Special Track organizer will be responsible for the quality of the Special Track papers and manage the review process accordingly, assigning a Program Committee for the Track. All accepted papers will be published in the IEEE CBMS 2005 Proceedings by the IEEE Computer Science Press.

Papers for special tracks which were not accepted by the corresponding Program Committee can be considered for publication as regular submissions by the General Program Committee of IEEE CBMS 2005.
If you know of some colleague who might be interested in proposing a track, please share this announcement with her/him or send us the e-mail address of the colleague.

Please find below the details to be included in your proposal and important dates. Proposals should be submitted by e-mail to Dr. Nadia Bolshakova (Nadia.Bolshakova at cs.tcd.ie), Special Tracks Chair. All proposals will be carefully reviewed. The notification of acceptance will be sent out before December 15, 2004. Please contact us with any questions that are not answered here, if you would like to find out more about proposing a special track for IEEE CBMS 2005.
