General Info

Medical and Biological Engineering and Computing cover complementary disciplines that hold great promise for the advancement of research and development in complex medical and biological systems. Research and development in these areas are impacting the science and technology by advancing fundamental concepts in translational medicine, by helping us understand human physiology and function at multiple levels, by improving tools and techniques for the detection, prevention and treatment of disease. Medicon 2016 provides a common platform for the cross fertilization of ideas, and to help shape knowledge and scientific achievements by bridging complementary disciplines into an interactive and attractive forum under the special theme of the conference that is Systems Medicine for the Delivery of Better Healthcare Services. Keeping this objective in mind, Medicon 2016 solicits original contributions in the following non-exclusive tracks.

Paper Submission
The submission should contain original, high quality, not submitted or published elsewhere work. Papers should be submitted electronically (through Medicon 2016 web site) in PDF format and should conform to IFMBE Proceedings Template (single-spaced, double-coloumn, 10-point front size, 4 to 6 pages).

Paper Presentaion
Each accepted paper should be presented by one of the authors and accompanied by at least one full registration fee payment , to guarantee publication in the proceedings. One full registration fee can cover up to 2 papers only. All accepted papers will be included in the IFMBE proceedings of Medicon2016 that will be published by Springer.

Student Paper Competition
Students are encouraged to submit their papers to the Medicon2016 Student paper competition.

Call for Papers

Track on “Clinical Engineering” and “Health Technology Assessment”

(Deadline for paper submission 30th of November 2015)

“Clinical Engineering” and “Health Technology Assessment” are two fast growing fields of interest for Biomedical Engineers (BMEs), as the IFMBE widely recognises. Nonetheless, there is a lack of spaces for BMEs to publish their researches or projects results in those fields. This track aims to highlight the most recent advances in those two fields, welcoming contributions from BME working in academic, healthcare and manufacturing settings. To this end, submissions describing applications and/or innovative approaches, methods and tools in several areas are welcome including, but not limited to the following topics:

    · Hospital engineering

    · Medical equipment design, development, modelling, and applications

    · Ethical issues related to Health Technology

    · Medical devices regulation, standards and legislation

    · Safety and vigilance

    · Medical equipment management

    · Clinical challenges to BME

    · Clinical Engineering management within non- regular environments

    · Clinical Engineering Education

    · BME education in HTA

    · Human Factor Engineering, Clinical Engineering and HTA

    · Clinical engineering and Information Technology

    · Cross-national comparisons on Health Technology policy using evidence-based approaches

    · Availability of HTA/data information

    · Indicators and benchmarks (measure/metrics) for adoption and diffusion of Health Technologies

    · Risk Management and Disaster Preparedness on health environments

    · Health Technology Management (HTM)

    · Service delivery management

    · General management

    · Facilities management

    · Testing, evaluation and modification

    · Lean thinking

    · Quality

    · Early stage and/or premarket HTA

    · HTA of medical devices

    · HTA of eHealth and telemedicine

    · HTA of ICT for healthcare

    · HTA of innovative healthcare services

    · Methods and tools for HTA

    · Multi-criteria decision analysis for healthcare

    · Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) in healthcare

    · Models and frameworks to support decision- making in Health Technology investments

    · Needs assessment for new healthcare technology

    · Health impact assessment of new technology

    · Disinvestments

    · Procurement

    · HTA transferability among regions/nations

If you think that none of the above topics describes properly your work, please feel free to propose integrations. We are sincerely aware that someone is designing the future right now, and we are more than happy if we can help by adding a new topic in this list, which we have not seen yet.

In collaboration with the Editors-in-Chief of the IFMBE International Journal of Clinical Engineering and Health Technology Assessment (http://www.cehta.org/), Prof Nicolas Pallikarakis (Greece) and Prof Saide Jorge Calil (Brazil), the best contributions will be invited to submit an extended versions of their papers to be considered for publications in a special issue to be published in late 2016.

The best papers will be considered for the Clinical Engineering Best Paper Award. A similar award is under discussion for HTA papers. If you are interested in organizing a special session, a workshop or a round table within this track please contact directly the Chairmen no later than the 6th of November. Please send a 1- page proposal with Title, a brief abstract, list of possible contributions/papers with respective authors/speakers.


Important dates:

· Special sessions, round tables, workshops proposal 6th of November 2015

· Paper submission 30th of November 2015

·
Author instructions:

Papers will have to be submitted via EasyAcademia, according to the instruction given on the MEDICON2016 web pages for all the papers (apart from the deadline). Each paper will be reviewed by two independent reviewers with wide experience and sensitivity to Clinical Engineering and HTA. Paper notification will be given on rolling base and no later than 15th of December.
