Showcases/Research Projects

CBMS 2019 will have a special showcase/research projects track session, where we invite (a) scientific papers, (b) demonstrations/posters and (c) research-projects descriptions.

Scientific papers: We invite papers (not exceeding 6 pages in length), describing innovative computer based medical devices or software applications, including practical experiences with such innovations. The papers should be scholarly articles presenting scientific methods, measurements, and experiments. Marketing and sales materials will not be accepted. These papers will be evaluated based on practicality, innovation, scientific rigor, value of the device or application to users, and novelty. They will be published in the proceedings of the conference along with the other papers under this track.

Examples of such papers could include but are not limited to:

  • Computer-based medical devices that have technical/scientific novelty
  • Computer-based medical applications intended for or recently introduced in the field
  • Novel uses of traditional equipment in practice
  • Experience papers based on use and data from the field
  • Insightful measurement-based analysis of computer-based medical systems from the field
  • Novel analysis providing new insights from data collected from the field
  • New and practical data analytics useful in practice

Demonstrations: A demonstration is more appropriate if the value can be better expressed with a demonstration rather than in a full-length paper. The topics for the demonstration papers are the same as the scientific for this track. Please submit a one page proposal of your demonstration.

Research projects/initiatives: CBMS aims in the 2019 edition to receive submissions about research or innovation projects funded by, mainly, competitive calls to present their project. We foresee to receive submissions which include details about the project goals, consortium and results (expected and any tentative result obtained so far). Only projects funded by competitive calls or with strong potential interest for the community will be considered. International projects organized in a consortium of several countries will have preference.

Submissions in this context should be a one/two-pages document with at least the following information:

  • Project/initiative title
  • Description
  • Participant entities
  • Project goals
  • Funding agency (when applies) or agencies
  • Results obtained so far (publications, patents, …)

Important dates:

  • Paper submission deadline (Extended, final extension): February 14, 2019 (23:59 GMT time)
  • Notification of acceptance: March 31, 2019
  • Camera-ready due: April 18, 2019 May 9, 2019 (23:59 GMT time)
  • Registration
    • Early registration deadline: April 15, 2019
    • Late registration deadline: May 6, 2019 (Last date for attendants with a paper)
    • Last minute registration deadline: May 30, 2019 (Only for attendants with no paper)
  • CBMS 2019: June 5 – 7, 2019

If you have any inquiry, you can contact the Showcases Chairs through contact page.

Inclusion in the proceedings:

Only scientific papers within showcases/research projects track will be included in the conference proceedings.

Submission guidelines:

Each contribution must be prepared following the IEEE two-column format, and should not exceed the length of 6 (six) Letter-sized pages; the authors may use LaTeX or Microsoft Word templates when preparing their manuscripts.

The templates are available here:

Papers must be submitted electronically using the EasyChair conference management system at:

All the submissions will be reviewed by one the Showcases/Research Projects chair, and the acceptance or rejection decision will be taken after a discussion of all the chairs.

All accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings and will be published by IEEE. Publication in proceedings is conditioned to the registration and presentation of the paper at the conference by one of the authors of the paper. If the paper is not presented at the conference it will not be included in the proceedings.
