2013 IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence in healthcare and e-health (IEEE CICARE 2013)  


IEEE CICARE 2013 is the first Symposium of its kind, and will bring together leading research and clinical scientists, engineers, practitioners, technology and solution providers in healthcare and e-health from around the world to discuss latest advances in the field of computational intelligence applied to solving the growing scale and complexity of problems in these inter-disciplinary domains. This symposium will provide a forum for the presentation of recent results in the theory and practice of computational intelligence in healthcare and e-health systems and services, and there will also be Panel discussions to outline future research directions and challenges.

IEEE CICARE 2013 is being held as part of the IEEE Symposium Series on Computational Intelligence (SSCI’2013), Singapore, 15-19 April 2013. IEEE SSCI 2013 is one of the two flagship biennial international events sponsored by the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (IEEE CIS) promoting all aspects of the theory and applications of computational intelligence. The IEEE SSCI co-locates several technical meetings at one location. This event attracts top researchers, professionals, and students from around the world.
