  Call For Papers






The Philadelphia Section of the IEEE and the Philadelphia Section of the IEEE Signal Processing Society invite you to participate in a single-day symposium designed to promote synergy between the healthcare industries and signal processing researchers. This year's program features a special emphasis on big data applications. Featured topics include:

  • Analysis of Biomedical Signals and Images
  • Machine Learning and Pattern Recognition
  • Signal Processing in Bioinfomatics
  • Time-frequency and Non-stationary Signal Analysis
  • Wearable Healthcare Devices
  • Data Mining and Analytics in Healthcare
  • Security and Reliability in Medical Technology
  • Emerging Medical Devices and Applications
Two plenary talks will be given:

  • Dr. Sanda Harabagiu, Professor and Director, The Human Language Technology Research Institute, The University of Texas at Dallas, "Big Mechanisms for Processing Big Data in Medical Informatics"

  • Om Vadlapatla, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Klincis, "Transforming Bedside Care With Real-Time Decision Support"
Papers of general interest to the disciplines of signal processing and bioengineering are also welcome. The symposium format will include two plenary talks, oral presentations and poster sessions. We particularly encourage graduate students to participate and present their current research. Live technology demonstrations and exhibits are also encouraged.
