BioCAS 2016|Oct.17-19|Shanghai,China

The 12th IEEE BioCAS, to be held on Oct. 17-19 in downtown Shanghai, is a premier international forum for researchers and engineers to present their state-of-the-art multidisciplinary research and development activities at the frontiers of medicine, life sciences, and engineering.

BioCAS 2016 will remain its tradition of single track conference and will have lots of opportunities for interactive discussions. In addition to regular oral and poster sessions, the three-day program of BioCAS 2016 will comprise of three invited keynote speeches, three insightful tutorials, several special sessions on emerging topics, and one live demo session.Call for papers can be found here.

BrainCAS, a 2-day post conference workshop, will be held in Hangzhou (a beautiful city near Shanghai) from Oct. 20-21, 2016. The workshop is the first time in BioCAS, answering the increasing needs to bridge the brain sciences with engineering. Top brain scientists and engineers from Europe, America and Asia, will come to present their latest findings and most interesting ideas.

All papers presented in the conference will be included in IEEExplore database and be indexed by EI.

A Special Issue from IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Circuits and Systems(TBioCAS) (Impact factor: 3.149) has been scheduled to publish the best papers with substantial extension in 2017. Best papers will also be invited to publish in Science China Information Sciences (SCIS) (Impact factor: 0.85).
