BHI 2021 Workshops

Deadline for proposal submission: April 4, 2021

The IEEE International Conference on Biomedical and Health Informatics BHI) is the flagship conference of IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (IEEE-EMBS) on the topics of informatics and computing in healthcare and life sciences. The theme of the BHI 2021 is Reshaping healthcare through advanced AI-enabled health informatics for a better quality of life.

IEEE BHI 2021 will be co-organized with IEEE BSN 2021 (2021 IEEE Body Sensor Network) virtually, from 27-30 July, 2021. It will provide a unique forum to showcase enabling technologies of devices and sensors, hardware and software systems, predictive models, databases, and big data analytics that optimize the acquisition, transmission, processing, monitoring, storage, retrieval, analysis, visualization and interpretation of vast volumes of multi-modal biomedical data, as well as related social, behavior, environmental, and geographical data. It will also demonstrate the deployment of BHI informatics solutions that integrate key technologies including machine learning, artificial intelligence, Internet of Things (IoT), mHealth, e-Health, human computer interface, telemedicine, bioinformatics, sensors, imaging, and public health monitoring, to achieve patient-centric and outcome-driven effective health care. BHI 2021 has the following 10 tracks: Bioinformatics; Imaging Informatics; Biomedical Signal Processing Informatics; Sensor Informatics; Behavioral Informatics; Big Data Analytics, Machine Learning and Deep Learning; Clinical Informatics; Public Health Informatics; Precision Medicine Informatics; Disease Oriented Informatics.

BHI 2021 will provide dedicated networking social events (virtual) and special topics workshops to encourage BHI 2021 participants to exchange knowledge and insights, and to cultivate collaborations.

Proposals for Workshops

The BHI 2021 Workshops are categorized into regular workshops and tutorials. Regular workshops will cover current and future development of biomedical and health informatics at the intersection of computer and information sciences, health analytics, personal genomics, precision medicine, smart sensors, POC, mobile devices and behavioral and integrative informatics. Tutorial workshops will provide reviews of an emerging technology or application area of biomedical and health informatics, with a focus area such as precision medicine and preventive care, but may also involve registrants through a hands-on experience or demonstrations.  A workshop will be delivered by a group of leading researchers and pioneers in their respective areas in a half-day format with a nominal fee charged to registrants. The proposals will be reviewed by the Workshop Co-Chairs. Please note that workshop submissions will be included in the digital program of BHI 2021 but will not appear in IEEE Xplore Proceedings.  A website will be made available to Workshop registrants to download any materials provided by the Workshop organizer(s). Workshop organizer(s) may provide additional material such as handouts to participants during the Workshop. Note that workshops bridging BHI with BSN topics, and targeting audiences from both communities, are especially encouraged.

Proposal Submission

Please submit your workshop proposal by 4th April through the EDAS management system ( Proposals should include the following information: Names and Affiliations of Organizers, Brief Workshop Description (including motivation, goals and intended audience, <500 words), Proposed Format (e.g., panel session, demonstration, invited talks), and Expected Duration (half day or full day). Presentations and materials offered to workshop registrants will be reviewed by the workshop scientific committee. The organizers are fully responsible for ensuring the quality of the workshop content.
