IEEE/NLM Life Science Systems and Applications Workshop

National Library of Medicine, NIH, Bethesda, Maryland

13-14 July 2006

The second IEEE Life Science Systems and Application (LSSA) workshop is sponsored by IEEE Circuits and Systems Society with support from the National Library of Medicine/National Institutes of Health. The aim of this workshop is to provide a forum for presenting new advancements in systems and applications in emerging life science applications. We will also focus on identifying potential areas for research and collaboration between the life science and systems engineering communities. The workshop has a significant tutorial component intended to educate, to create awareness of life science systems and applications in the circuits and systems communities, and to stimulate multidisciplinary and collaborative research in this area. We will also have special sessions dealing with the following life science application domains, e.g., neuroscience, drug development, and public health, and life science technologies such as medical imaging, biochips, and life science automation. This workshop will consist of both invited sessions and contributed sessions. Invited speakers will give tutorial talks on the general area of life science systems and applications. This call for papers is to solicit contributed papers for the poster sessions which are expected to be highly interactive. Those interested should submit a two-page summary describing original work. The final version of accepted papers will be published in electronic proceedings which will be distributed by the web and by CD-ROM at the workshop. Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance and

originality.
