The IEEE-EMBS International Conference on Biomedical and Health Informatics (BHI) is the flagship conference of IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (IEEE-EMBS) on the topics of informatics and computing in healthcare and life sciences. The theme of the BHI2019 is “Integrative informatics and modeling for precision and preventive medicine.”
IEEE-EMBS BHI2019 will provide a unique forum to showcase enabling technologies of devices and sensors, hardware and software systems, predictive models, databases, and big data analytics that optimize the acquisition, transmission, processing, monitoring, storage, retrieval, analysis, visualization and interpretation of vast volumes of multi-modal biomedical data, as well as related social, behavior, environmental, and geographical data. It will also demonstrate the deployment of BHI informatics solutions that integrate key technologies including machine learning, artificial intelligence, Internet of Things (IoT), mHealth, e-Health, human computer interface, telemedicine, bioinformatics, sensors, imaging, and public health monitoring, to achieve patient-centric and outcome-driven effective health care. BHI2019 has the following 10 tracks: Bioinformatics; Imaging Informatics; Biomedical Signal Processing Informatics; Sensor Informatics; Behavioral Informatics; Big Data Analytics and Machine Learning; Clinical Informatics; Public Health Informatics; Precision Medicine Informatics; Disease Oriented Informatics.
Dr. Dagdeviren will give a speak on Wearable and Implantable Devices ‘On the Go’ on Monday, May 20th, at 10:30-11:00 am. She is also one of the technical chairs of the 16th IEEE-EMBS International Conference on Wearable and Implementable Body Sensor Networks (BSN’19), Chicago, IL, USA.
Multifunctional sensing capability, ‘unusual’ formats with flexible/stretchable designs, lightweight construction, and self-powered operation are desired attributes for electronics that directly interface with the human body. I have focused on novel microfabrication techniques and tricks to use active piezoelectric materials and required electronic components, which have the shape and the mechanical properties that match with those of human tissues, in order to allow intimate integration without any irritation and/or harm to the body. In this talk, I describe novel materials, mechanics and device designs for emerging classes of wearable health monitoring systems and implantable, minimally invasive medical devices. These include a variety of electrodes, sensors, and energy harvesting components, with promising applications in bio-integrated electronics, such as self-powered cardiac pacemakers, wearable blood pressure sensors, modulus sensor patches, and neural drug delivery systems.
