The 20th IEEE International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems (CBMS
2007) will be held on June 20-22, 2007 at University of Maribor, Slovenia. CBMS
2007 is sponsored by IEEE Computer Society (Technical Committee on Computational
Medicine, TCCM); Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science,
University of Maribor, Slovenia; and Faculty of Health Sciences, University of
Maribor, Slovenia.

CBMS 2007 is intended to provide an international forum for discussing the
latest results in the field of computational medicine. The symposium is
dedicated to a broad array of issues which relate computing to medicine. It
consists of both regular and special track sessions with technical contributions
reviewed and selected by an international program committee, as well as of
invited talks given by leading scientists.

CBMS 2007 will accept papers on a number of different general topics; authors
may also submit their work to one of a number of different special tracks,
reviewed by various special track chairs. A special track consists of the
presentation of several papers in a medical informatics sub discipline or a
special field, refereed by researchers and practitioners in the field.
Relevant topics

CBMS 2007 is the premiere symposium in its field, attracting a worldwide
audience. This symposium draws together experts in many fields to discuss the
latest advances in medical systems based upon computers.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Software Systems in Medicine and Nursing
• Computer-Aided Diagnosis
• Knowledge-based Systems & Data Mining
• Decision Support Systems
• Medical Devices with Embedded Computers
• Signal and Image Processing in Medicine
• Medical Image Segmentation & Compression
• Medical and Nursing informatics
• Network and Telemedicine Systems
• Telenursing systems
• Medical and nursing Databases & Information Systems
• Web-based Delivery of Medical and Nursing Information
• Multimedia Biomedical Databases
• Content Analysis of Biomedical Image Data
• Hand-held Computing Applications in Medicine
• Bioinformatics in Medicine
• Medical Intelligence and Data Warehousing


Submitted papers have to be original, containing new and original results. There
are two possibilities for initially submitting a paper:
• A full paper (6 pages). It is strongly encouraged to submit a full paper,
which enables reviewers to assess it more objectively and authors to
substantially improve the paper based on the review feedback. In this way, the
high quality of this conference series can be adequately maintained and/or
• A summary (3 pages). CBMS 2007 serves also as a forum for exchanging
interesting and novel results of a work in progress and in this manner provides
participants with an opportunity to come up-to-date on important issues. In this
way, the 3-pages summaries are also accepted in the case that a full paper can
not be delivered until the deadline.

There are two possibilities for presenting an accepted paper: oral presentation
(regular papers) or poster presentation (short papers). Authors can also
indicate their preference when submitting a paper. The final decision will be
made by the Program Committee based on the reviews. All papers will be
peer-reviewed by at least two reviewers.

Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register
and present the paper at the CBMS 2007 Symposium. All papers will be peer
reviewed by at least two independent referees. All accepted papers will be
included in the conference proceedings. Additionally, selected high quality
papers may be invited to submit a substantially extended version for the special
issue of an international medical informatics journal (Journal of Medical
Systems, International Journal of Medical Informatics, IEEE Transactions on
Information Technology in Biomedicine, Computer methods and programs in


Special track proposals: December 1, 2006.
Notification of acceptance for special track proposals: December 15, 2006
Paper submission due: January 31, 2007.
Notification of acceptance for papers: March 15, 2007.
Camera ready papers: April 15, 2007.
Pre-registration deadline: April 20, 2007.
CBMS 2007 Symposium: June 20-22, 2007.

At least one of authors must pre-register to have the paper published in the
proceedings. If you only plan to attend and are not submitting a paper,
pre-registration is still strongly encouraged. This conference is space-limited,
and registration may not be available on-site.


A number of special track sessions will be held in parallel with other IEEE CBMS
2007 technical sessions. A special track consists of the presentation of several
papers in a medical informatics sub discipline or a special field, refereed by
researchers and practitioners in the field.

Persons wishing to organize a special track should email a proposal to
cbms@uni-mb.si by December 1, 2006. Proposals should include a session title, a
list of the topics covered, the qualifications and brief biography of the
special track organizer(s) and plan of the special track promotion. Organizers
of special tracks will be notified upon acceptance of a proposed special track
until December 15, 2006.
Organizers of special tracks will be responsible for reviews of the special
track papers.
Special tracks have to include at least five full papers and special track
organizers will be waived the registration fee. The accepted papers from special
tracks with less than 5 papers will be included in the regular conference

Engineers, scientists, clinicians and managers involved in medical computing
projects are encouraged to submit papers to the symposium and/or attend the
symposium. The symposium provides its attendees with an opportunity to
experience state-of-the-art research and development in a variety of topics
directly and indirectly related to their own work. In addition to research
papers, keynote speakers and tutorial sessions it provides participants with an
opportunity to come up-to-date on important technological issues.

The symposium encourages the participation of students engaged in
research/development in computer-based medical systems. A prize will be awarded
to the Best Student Paper submitted to (and presented at) the symposium.

Best full paper, best student paper, and best poster will be awarded. More
information is available at cbms2007.uni-mb.si.
