Call for Papers:

We are facing the generalization of digital society. The globalization imposes the revision of the health costs a society can support. The progress in difference domains, such as image processing, wireless communications, computer vision, cardiology, and information storage and management assure a virtual team to access online to the latest achievements. 0

Processing medical data benefits now from advanced techniques for color imaging, visualization of multi-dimensional projections, Internet imaging localization archiving and as well as from high resolution of medical devices.

Collecting, storing, and handling patient data requires robust processing systems, safe communications and storage, and easy and authenticated online access.

We assist to a unprecedented and rapid deployment of use of electronic imagery, navigation portals, positive attitude on telemedicine, distributed surgery teams, tele-cardiology, and remote medicine.

The International Workshop on Telemedicine (TELEMED 2007) initiates a series of international events covering the latest achievements on the following topics:

Telemedicine software and devices
Virtual telemedicine
Wireless telemedicine
Electronic imagery and visualization frameworks
Color imaging and multidimensional projections
Personal, adaptive, and content-based image retrieval imaging
Imaging interfaces and navigation
Medical image processing
Computer vision and resolution
Telemedicine and telehealth
Telepathology and digital imaging
Clinical telemedicine
Internet imaging localization and archiving
Video techniques for medical images
Remote medicine and Internet
Safety in telemedicine
Telemedicine portals

We welcome technical papers presenting research and practical results, position papers addressing the pros and cons of specific proposals, such as those being discussed in the standard fora or in industry consortia, survey papers addressing the key problems and solutions on any of the above topics short papers on work in progress, and panel proposals.

The topics suggested by the workshop can be discussed in term of concepts, state of the art, standards, implementations, running experiments and applications. Authors are invited to submit complete unpublished papers, which are not under review in any other conference or journal in the following, but not limited topic areas.

Industrial presentations are not subject to these constraints. We expect short and long presentations that express industrial position and status.

Tutorials on specific related topics and panels on challenging areas are encouraged.
