About the conference

Following the previous 10 successful International Conference on Information Technology and Applications in Biomedicine (ITAB), this conference series will be launched with the new title of IEEE-EMBS International Conferences on BIOMEDICAL AND HEALTH INFORMATICS (BHI) started from this year. The BHI2012 will be held in Hong Kong / Shenzhen during 5-7 Jan. 2012.

To be held in conjunction with the 8th International Symposium on Medical Devices and Biosensors and the 7th International Symposium on Biomedical and Health Engineering, the BHI 2012 will be devoted to an inter-disciplinary research area intersecting engineering, information technology and computer science with biology, medicine and health. The conference is to examine enabling technologies of devices and systems that optimize the acquisition, transmission, processing, storage, retrieval (P-STAR) of biomedical and health information as well as to report clinical studies on the novel application of health information systems. The goal of the proposed joint event is to bring together academicians, clinicians, industrial representatives, government and private research agencies and funders to facilitate a dialogue on addressing the theme “Global Grand Challenge on Health Informatics”.
