2nd Workshop on Recent Advances in Computational and Engineering Methods in Biomedicine and Rehabilitation 



Special Workshop/Session on Recent Advances in Computational and Engineering Methods in Biomedicine and Rehabilitation aims at discussing recent achievements in development and application of the contemporary and emerging systems, technologies, and methodologies directed to study phenomena of, diagnose, treat, and monitor biomedical and rehabilitation processes. In the recent years this multidisciplinary field brought remarkable changes, paradigm shift, and fundamental scientific breakthroughs in the healthcare in general. Worldwide strategies and policies consentingly emphasize necessity of collaborative, emerging, enabling, and converging approaches to deepen knowledge, understanding and capabilities required for proper dealing with complex biomedical and rehabilitation problems. Scientific and engineering advances, even breakthroughs, are clearly evident in biomedical signal processing, imaging, medical physics, tissue and regenerative engineering, nanotechnology, medical devices and robotics, as well as health/medical information systems, to mention just a core of the broad spectrum of corresponding areas.

In order to contribute to scientific and engineering community, as well as healthcare industry, we are inviting you to share your challenges and the current state of the art in the areas of your expertise, with supporting case studies of real-world relevance to underlying phenomena and biomedical and health care applications.

The main topics of this special session, but not limited to, are the following:

• Biomedical Image Processing and Analysis
• Biomedical Signal Processing and Analysis
• Biophysics and Medical Physics
• Neuroengineering
• Biomechanics, Rehabilitation and Prosthetics
• Minimum Invasive Surgery, Robotics, Image Guided Therapies, Endoscopy
