IEEE CBMS 2017 invites proposals for organisation of special tracks that will be held in parallel with the general conference track. A special track consists of a group of papers in a sub- discipline of a biomedical engineering/technology, health informatics or a specialised field.


Special tracks are an integral part of most CBMS conferences since 2005. The themes of the special tracks should not overlap with the general conference topics and should focus on emerging research fields. Their papers should report on significant unpublished work, they are required to meet the same standards and are included in the conference proceedings.


Organiser(s) of each Special Track (ST) are responsible for the quality of the papers in their track as well as managing the review process accordingly and assigning a Program Committee members as reviewers for the ST. Special Track Chairs in collaboration with the ST organiser(s) and PC chairs will do the final paper selection. A successful special track will consist of at least 4-5 accepted papers per session and 1-3 sessions at maximum. One waved registration fee for the ST organiser.


If you are interested in organizing a Special Track, please submit your proposal before October 25, 2016 by email to

Each proposal needs to include

  • ST title;
  • rough estimate of the expected size (usually, 4-5 papers per session, 1-3 sessions per track);
  • a brief biography of ST organizer(s) and list of ST program committee members;
  • a draft of ST call for papers.
