Computation in healthcare, imaging, and systems biology has evolved independently in the past decades, developing into disciplines and scientific communities that have not yet fully explored synergies and collaborations. As biomedical sciences and these independent computational fields advanced, science and data became “big”, leading to an increasing realization that it is important to connect the dots and offer opportunities for experts in these disciplines to understand what their counterparts are doing, how each other’s developments can benefit one’s research agenda, avoid duplication, and develop means for collaboration that directly address challenges related to biomedicine.
All over the world there is increasing access to mobile communications and computing and technical barriers to collaboration have been significantly lowered. However, there is still no perfect substitute for face-to-face discussions and the kind of interactions afforded by top quality scientific meetings that blend the best of science and social opportunities in a select environment of open discussion and scientific debate, all happening in the foreground of scenic La Jolla, California.
We invite national and international healthcare informatics, imaging, and systems biology communities to HISB. Attendees should come prepared with their best ideas to meet colleagues in an exciting, small footprint scientific meeting (attendance will be limited to 200 registrants plus invited guests). The conference emphasizes cross-disciplinary knowledge sharing, so thematic tracks are not parallel, offering all the opportunity to learn topics in which they do not specialize, but to which they get exposure to help contextualize research and inspire new interdisciplinary ideas. Tutorials and workshops help complete a program featuring top quality scientific presentations from the latest scientific developments (the most innovative will be invited for journal publications), panel presentations, and invigorating keynote presentations from science leaders. Come help us create a joint vision for how computation on Big Data can change the way we design the future of computation in healthcare and biomedical sciences through health informatics, imaging, and systems biology!
The IEEE HISB conference will be followed by a series of workshops through iDASH on September 29, 2012.
UCSD, La Jolla, California, September 27-28, 2012
