Call for Papers

The IEEE-EMBS International Conference on Biomedical and Health Informatics (BHI) and the IEEE-EMBS International Conference on Wearable and Implantable Body Sensor Networks (BSN) are sponsored by the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (IEEE-EMBS). This joint conference is focused on informatics and computing in healthcare and life sciences.
The conference will take place in Ioannina Greece, from 27-30 September, 2022. 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 and machine learning 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.
