DLAMC 2019 : Special Track on Deep Learning Applications in Medical Care 2019
Call For Papers
The development of intelligent medical data analysis systems has experienced a significant boost in recent years thanks to the emergence of a machine learning paradigm known as deep learning. Deep learning (DL) algorithms have enabled development of highly accurate systems (with performance comparable to that of human experts, in some cases) and have become a standard choice for analyzing medical data, especially medical images, video, and electronic health records. Dozens of commercial applications using deep learning to analyze, classify, segment and measure data from different modalities of sensors and medical images are currently available. Deep learning methods applied on electronic health records are contributing to understand the evolution of chronic diseases and predicting the risk of developing those diseases. Researchers in industry, hospitals, and academia have published hundreds of scientific contributions in this area during the last year alone.
The “Deep Learning Applications in Medical Care” special track provides a forum for the discussion of the impact of deep learning on medical sensor/image/video data and electronic health record analysis and a focused venue for sharing novel scientific contributions in the area of deep learning.
Authors are invited to submit their original contributions before the deadline following the conference submission guidelines. Each contribution must be prepared following the IEEE two-column format, and should not exceed the length of 6 (six) Letter-sized pages. For detailed instructions please visit: http://www.cbms2019.org/calls/ and go to “Submission” -) “Instructions for Authors”.
