Call: “Supporting Collaboration in Healthcare” track of IEEE Computer-Based Medical Systems conference (CBMS 2011)

IEEE CBMS 2011, Bristol England
Deadline: April 20th 2011
Special Track: “Supporting Collaboration in Healthcare”

The 24th IEEE International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems (CBMS 2011) will be held at the University of the West of England, Bristol, from June 27th to 30th 2011. The conference will provide an international forum for discussing the latest developments in the field of computational medicine, biomedical informatics and related fields. There will be regular and special track sessions with technical contributions reviewed and selected by an international programme committee, as well as keynote talks and tutorials given by leading experts in their fields.

 “Supporting Collaboration in Healthcare”

Healthcare staff are notable in the amount of interaction and mobility exhibited in their work, which often involves synchronous (or asynchronous), coupled, communication and activity, and is sometimes conducted among a distributed team.  The fundamental importance of providing harmonised hospital, social care and community services has also become an identified goal in health and social care.  As well as providing novel approaches to support traditional methods of communication, a range of technologies offer the potential for individuals and groups to reconfigure their collaboration practices in new and useful ways.

This special track invites reports on significant unpublished work in the area of computer-support for co-operative work in healthcare, with particular emphasis on design and technology applications for interaction among medical specialists, and between medical specialists and patients. Research on support for collaboration among medical, nursing, scientific, ancillary staff and patients is encouraged, including case studies or incident reports.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Ward rounds
  • Team working
  • Meeting support
  • Consultations
  • Shift handover
  • Mobile Work
  • Teaching/Learning
  • Shared displays
  • Remote collaboration
  • Visual communication environments
  • Intense collaborative environments
  • Collaborative writing/note-taking
  • Carer – Patient collaboration
  • Computer support for co-operative healthcare work
