Welcome to IEEE MeMeA 2014. The 9th edition of IEEE International Symposium on Medical Measurement and Applications will take place in the beautiful city of Lisbon, Portugal.
The theme of the 2014 edition is
“Beyond Medical Measurements”
The IEEE International Symposium on Medical Measurements and Applications, IEEE MeMeA 2014, will be held at ISCTE-IUL, the Lisbon University Institute, in the northern part of Lisbon in Cidade Universitária (University Campus) together with the main Faculties of Lisbon University. The 2014 edition of the Symposium will bring together practitioners and researchers from diverse fields to exchange ideas and information, make connections and collaborations, and update current and future innovation on health care systems. Discussions will address open issues in terms of concepts, research, standards, implementations, running experiments, and applications for diagnosis and treatment that improve customization to identify key changes in health status. The theme of the 2014 edition is “Beyond Medical Measurements”.
Topics include but are not limited to:
- Standards for Medical Devices and Applications
- Monitoring & Diagnostic Systems
- Healthcare Services using Information and Communication Technologies
- Information Processing
- Interfaces and Interaction
- Assistive Technology
Authors are invited to submit preliminary version papers (4-6 pages) reporting original research of theoretical or applied nature that encompasses researches and results on design and implementation of health monitoring and health care devices and applications, telecommunications, computer-based decision support, multi-variable simulation tools, data intensive engineering, information communication technology, accuracy and efficiency of measurement devices and process execution in health care systems. The preliminary version papers will be accepted based on a peer review process. The review can result in revision requests that must be mandatory fulfilled to have the paper accepted in the symposium proceedings. The submission should explain the significance of the contribution, results part and contain a list of key references. The manuscripts must be prepared in English according to guidelines provided on the MeMeA 2014 website (http://memea2014.ieee-ims.org/).
All accepted and presented papers from the Symposium will be published in the Symposium Proceedings and via IEEE Xplore. An accepted paper will be published in the proceedings only if the full-fee registration payment for one of the authors is received and correctly processed.
Special session, dedicated to case-studies and commercial presentations, as well as technical tutorials, dedicated to technical/scientific topics, are also envisaged: companies interested in presenting their products/methodologies or researchers interested in presenting a demo or lecturing a tutorial are invited to contact the conference secretariat.
SPECIAL ISSUE OF IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON INSTRUMENTATION AND MEASUREMENT:
A special Issue of IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement (TIM) will be published. It will contain papers selected on the basis of the results of regular peer review of the manuscripts. Each manuscript has to meet the scope of the TIM and be based on a paper published in the symposium proceedings and presented. However, the manuscript must be significantly extended beyond the scope of the proceedings paper in terms of the overall technical content and research results.
