Special Sessions

Special sessions are very small and specialized events to be held during the conference as a set of oral and poster presentations that are highly specialized in some particular theme or consisting of the works of some particular international project. The goal of special sessions (minimum 4 papers; maximum 9) is to provide a focused discussion on innovative topics. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and on digital support. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). The proceedings are submitted for indexation by SCOPUS, Google Scholar, The DBLP Computer Science Bibliography, Semantic Scholar, Microsoft Academic, Engineering Index (EI) and Web of Science / Conference Proceedings Citation Index.


Special session proposals are accepted until:

September 22, 2021


If you wish to propose a new Special Session please kindly fill out and submit this Expression of Interest form.

Scope

System engineering is immensely influencing every aspect of everyday’s life. A minimum requirement for healthcare equipment is the high capability in term of functionality and compatibility and low-cost affordability. Therefore, healthcare systems are under extreme pressures to meet requirement deemed from various sources. Many healthcare challenges have been solved by system engineering approach.

Scope

COVID-ex 2020 – Special Session at BIOSTEC, the 14th Int. Joint Conference on Biomedical Engineering Systems and Technologies is dedicated to broadly understood issues of COVID-20 data analysis using all available scientific methods. There are no limits for the kind of data: numeric, textual, or mixed. The problems encompasses a wide spectrum of existing methods, and an innovative use of them, as well as new innovative approaches are welcome.“COVID-ex” session is an opportunity to identify new research directions and presentation of original research results. It is also an opportunity for exchanging and diffusing innovative and practical experience in this hot field.


Special Session on Engineering and Fabrication of Biocompatible and Bioinspired Materials - BENEFICIAL 2022

Paper Submission: November 26, 2021
Authors Notification: December 14, 2021

Scope

Nature has created, through evolution, robust and sustainable solutions to myriad challenges. This has inspired researchers to engineer biomimetic interactive materials for industrial, medicinal and environmental applications. The focus of BENEFICIAL will be on designing principles and functional materials inspired by nature. The session will highlight engineering approaches (growth, characterization and properties), biocompatibility and functionality of designed materials. However, the scope of bioinspired materials goes beyond the extent of these domains. Therefore, the critical aim of BENEFICIAL is to establish an international, interdisciplinary network (forum) of scientists from fields such as materials science and engineering, physics, biology, chemistry and medicine to discuss current state-of-art and future directions of bioinspired materials.

Scope

Wearable HealthCare is part of the actual human daily life. Nowadays, we are able to find these devices and systems practically everywhere, as integrated, among others, in our homes, body, mobile devices and vehicles, with the objective of improving our safety, comfort, performance and quality of life.
Following this trend, we invite investigators, academics and professionals to submit original research and review articles that will contribute to the dissemination of Wearable HealthCare in the Engineering domain.
