CBMS 2011, the 24th International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems 
(http://www.cbms2011.org) sponsored by the IEEE, ACM, IFIP and the BCS will be held at the University 
of the West of England, Bristol (Frenchay Campus), 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.

On the first day of the conference, we are fortunate to have two keynote speakers long associated 
with HealthGrid conferences; Professor Richard Sinnott from Melbourne and Dr Vincent Breton from the 
Institut des Grilles of the CNRS in France. Vincent is this year's Jean-Claude Healy lecturer. The 
conference continues on Tuesday morning with Mary Kratz from the University of Michigan and PEPFAR, 
the US President's Programme for AIDS Relief, and at the end of the afternoon a sponsored HealthGrid 
keynote by Steve Brewer of the EGI. The after-dinner speaker on Tuesday evening will be Professor 
Peter Barham of Bristol University.
On Wednesday, the day begins with a keynote by Professor Harold Thimbleby, Swansea, whose research on 
usability has shed new light on "medical errors". Finally, two medical experts, Professor Iain 
Buchan, University of Manchester, and Professor Frances Griffiths, University of Warwick, bring their 
own deep and very distinct interdisciplinary understanding of issues facing modern medicine and 
healthcare provision.

The symposium is the premier conference for computational medicine, providing a mechanism for the 
exchange of ideas and technologies between academics and industrial scientists, and attracts a 
worldwide audience. Registration will include free access to all sessions from the co-located 
HealthGrid 2011 conference.

The following Special Tracks will present oral and poster presentations:
 1. Computational Proteomics and Genomics
 2. Knowledge Discovery and Decision Systems in Biomedicine
 3. Technology Enhanced Learning in Medical Education
 4. Intelligent Patient Management
 5. Data Streams in Healthcare
 6. Supporting Collaboration in Healthcare
 7. Biomedical Image Processing and Informatics
 8. Medical Robotics
 9. Assistive Technologies
 10. Ontologies for Biomedical Systems

Main track sessions will cover Communication and Interfaces in Healthcare, Guidelines, the 
Organisation of Healthcare, Signals and Visualisation.

Workshops will be held on a range of topics, including:
 • Health Level Seven (HL7) and Related Standards
 • Cloud Computing in Biomedicine & Healthcare
 • Ontologies in Biomedical Informatics
 • Visualization in Medicine
 • Student workshops on Ethics, Presentation, Post-doctoral Funding, etc.

More details about the papers being presented and the packed programme of sessions, tutorials, 
workshops and panels can be seen on the website, www.cbms2011.org

Normal registration ends:  June 19th 2011
