April 26, 2011

IEEE Healthcare Informatics, Imaging, and Systems Biology Conference (HISB)

by @ 7:14 pm. Filed under ALL, BioEngineering, Computers/Software, Optics/Displays

IEEE Healthcare Informatics, Imaging, and Systems Biology Conference (HISB)
— July 27-29, 2011 ? ? — IBM Almaden Research Labs, San Jose
There is a revolution of scientific and engineering advances seen simultaneously at all informatics levels. Healthcare IT researchers are mining information to correlate symptoms/conditions, diseases, medications/treatments and outcomes.
Three Tracks: ? – Healthcare Informatics (decision support, data mining, telehealth); ? – Imaging & Analysis (indexing, retrieval, modeling, visualization); ? – Systems Biology (genotype, phenotype, pharmacogenomics, mutations)
Keynotes: ? – Nobel laureate Prof. Andrew Z. Fire, Stanford University ? – Prof. Eric Grimson, Chancellor, MIT ? – Charles P. Friedman, Chief Scientific Officer, Health Information Technology U.S. Dept-HHS

Two-Day Intensive Course
Statistical CMOS Variability and Reliability
— June 13-14, 2011 ? ? — Hilton Hotel, San Jose
Statistical variability from the discreteness of charge and matter is a major concern for CMOS scaling and integration. Attend this comprehensive course on statistical nano-CMOS variability and reliability by the world-leading expert in this field.
Day 1: ? – Variability classification ? – Sources of statistical variability ? – Simulation of statistical variability ? – Variability trends in conventional and novel MOSFETs. ? Day 2: ? – Random telegraph noise statistics ? – Statistical aspects of reliability ? – Statistical compact model strategies ? – Statistical circuit simulation.
Attend either day, or both. ? Download Course Flyer. ? View an Online Lecture.
