Call For Papers

The fourth annual IEEE-NIH Life Science Systems and Application (LiSSA’09) workshop co-sponsored by IEEE (www.ieee.org) and the National Institute of Health’s Nano Task Force and endorsed by Biomedical Information Science and Technology Initiative (BISTI, www.bisti.nih.gov/bistic2.cfm) will be held on the NIH Campus in April 2009. LiSSA’09 welcomes original technical papers on the advancement of life and health science systems and applications. LiSSA’09 provides a forum where engineers can seek critical issues requiring sophisticated engineering techniques and scientists can find potential engineering collaborators. To facilitate this cross-disciplinary interaction, global leaders from academia, industry, and government will be invited to address challenges facing in this year’s theme of nanomedicine (nanomedcenter.org) from both biomedicine and engineering perspectives -- in particular, the advances made and barriers such as toxicity of nano-probes in imaging for diagnostics and therapy delivery and of nano-devices in bodies or environments. Special sessions from several IEEE societies will be included in the workshop.

This call for papers solicits original papers for oral and poster sessions which are designed to be highly interactive. Those interested should submit a 4-page manuscript in the IEEE format describing original work. The accepted papers will be published in electronic archives of IEEE Xplore digital library and will also be distributed by CD-ROM at the workshop. Selected papers will also be invited to be expanded into special issues in IEEE journals and book volumes. Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance, and originality. Best student papers will also be awarded.



Areas of Interest in new life science technologies and applications, including those of nanomedicine (but not limited to):



* Bioelectronic interfaces
* Biomarkers discovery and development
* Biomechanics and miniature instrumentation
