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

Nowadays, among the leading causes of the disability and high mortality are the deaseses of the central nervous system that are accomponied by the cognitive, sensor, motor and autonomic disorders.
The most common approach for treatment of such deases is the neoruprotection therapy, which promotes normalisation and strengtening of the physiological activities of the brain tissues. However, in this case pharmocological treatment methods are not always in conformity with the contemprorary requirements of the efficacy and safety of health care in the developed countries. This nonconformity have stimulated the development of new technologies for neuroprotection, based on application of the physical fields for formation of the neuromodulation proceses in the brain structures.
The goal of the special session is to present results of the latest achievements in the development of the systems for neuro-electrostimulation, the approach that implements the posibilities of the neuroplasicity.

Scope

The goal of this special session is to discuss the problems hindering the widespread adoption of smart medical devices - software based, wireless, implantable and wearable - including issues related to the quality of monitored data, the ability to retrieve information and use it in health context, as for example in tasks related to machine learning, knowledge discovery, decision support, regression, forecasting, optimization, feature selection, and additionally privacy and security issues of health data while being processed, availability of health data, and tele-monitoring.
Due to the interdisciplinary nature of the problems, we would like to gather a balanced group of device and sensors developers, system integrators and developers, knowledge and decision support experts, and clinical practitioners and provide them a convenient forum for discussion and exchange.
We encourage authors to submit papers to one of the main topics indicated below, or to open new perspectives and present novel points of view on this highly dynamic and important research and application field. Lessons learned from actual implementations of devices and systems, prospective frameworks, future visions and position papers are equally invited.

This year''s edition is technically sponsored by the World Federation on Soft Computing (http://softcomputing.org).

Scope

In order to reduce undesirable variation in care, care is provided in a protocolized way. These protocols and guidelines can be implemented through hospital-specific clinical pathways and form a primary source of clinical processes for specific diseases and conditions, both in acute and chronic care. The wish to further optimize various outcomes drives the request for means to analyze clinical processes using computational models. The goal of this special session is to outline advances in automated analysis of processes in a clinical context, ranging from specific clinical domains to public health and from technical advances in process mining to applications on retrospectively or prospectively acquired health data.
