Welcome to Innovation in Medicine and Healthcare 2013!
The KES International Conference on Innovation in Medicine and Healthcare (InMed-13) will gather a multi-disciplinary group consisting of researchers and engineers, managers, students and practitioners from the medical arena, to discuss the ways that innovation, knowledge exchange and enterprise can be applied to issues relating to medicine, surgery, healthcare and the issues of an ageing population.
A central feature of the conference will be a Workshop on Smart Medical and Healthcare Systems which will cover the ways in which modern intelligent systems contribute to the solution of problems faced by healthcare and medical practitioners today, addressing the application of these systems through all of the key themes of this year's conference.
Call for Papers
High quality papers are requested within the scope of the conference. Full papers will be peer reviewed, and if accepted, presented and appear in the proceedings. Alternatively, authors may choose to submit a short paper, which will be presented but will not appear in the proceedings.
