IEEE Signal Processing in Medicine and Biology Symposium (SPMB13)

Saturday, December 7, 2013
Polytechnic Institute of New York University

Signal processing plays a broad role in the development of medical devices and in the analysis of physiological signals. This public symposium provides a forum for the presentation of research and development in signal processing (broadly defined, i.e. including image processing, 3D reconstruction, etc.) in medicine and biology. The symposium is sponsored by IEEE-USA, the Polytechnic Institute of New York University (NYU-Poly) and the City College of New York (CCNY). The technical co-sponsored is the IEEE Engineering in Medicine & Biology Society.

We invite engineers, scientists, practitioners, and students to submit papers or abstracts for presentation at the symposium, or to attend the symposium. Prospective presenters may submit either (1) an original manuscript for peer review to be considered for publication in IEEE Xplore, or (2) an abstract, to be presented at the symposium, that may describe preliminary results, etc. The technical program will be posted on this site before the symposium. The symposium will be held on the NYU-Poly campus in downtown Brooklyn.
