Special Sessions

Special sessions are very small and specialized events to be held during the conference as a set of oral and poster presentations that are highly specialized in some particular theme or consisting of the works of some particular international project. The goal of special sessions (minimum 4 papers; maximum 9) is to provide a focused discussion on innovative topics. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and on CD-ROM support. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). The proceedings are submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP, EI (Elsevier Engineering Village Index) and Scopus.

Scope

Wearable HealthCare is part of the actual human daily life. Nowadays, we are able to find these devices and systems practically everywhere, as integrated, among others, in our homes, body, mobile devices and vehicles, with the objective of improving our safety, comfort, performance and quality of life.
Following this trend, we invite investigators, academics and professionals to submit original research and review articles that will contribute to the dissemination of Wearable HealthCare in the Engineering domain.

Scope

Current machine learning techniques are able to achieve spectacular results in automatic understanding of natural images whereas in the area of medical image analysis the progress is not that evident. The problem is medical knowledge essential for proper interpretation of image content. That knowledge, possessed by relatively small number of radiological experts, usually cannot be directly expressed using mathematical formulas. This can be overcome by laborious knowledge acquisition or by techniques to some extent imitating expert behaviour. Both approaches are, however, still challenging tasks. That is why the goal of the special session is to discuss the problems in acquisition and utilization of domain knowledge in automatic understanding of semantic image structure.

Scope

Denoising plays crucial role probably in all modalities of bioimaging: it is widely used in medical imaging modalities such as MRI, X-Ray, ultrasound, but in the same time, it is indispensable for advanced techniques of microscopy imaging. Compared with standard imaging conditions as encountered in technical applications, the bioimaging field comes with some unique challenges: often, we have to cope with non-Gaussian character of image noise. In order to preserve information on anatomical structures or cells contained in the image, preservation of object edges is of high importance.

Scope

The Outlier Detection for Biomedical Applications - Special Session at BIOSTEC, the 11th International Joint Conference on Biomedical Engineering Systems and Technologies is dedicated to broadly understood issues of outlier detection in large data sets, including big data. Detection of outliers is the basis for decision-making processes, classification, grouping and methods of intelligence. The problem of anomaly detection encompasses a wide spectrum of applied methods. ODEBIO session is therefore an opportunity to identify new research directions and presentation of original research results. It is also an opportunity for exchanging and diffusing innovative and practical experience in this field.
