Final Call for papers
The 30th International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems (CBMS2017) will be held at Research Dissemination Center of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Thessaloniki, Greece, from Thursday 22nd to Saturday 24th of June 2017. Attracting a worldwide audience, CBMS is the premier conference for computer-based medical systems, providing a mechanism for the exchange of ideas and technologies between academic and industrial scientists. The scientific program of CBMS 2017 will consist of 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. 
We solicit submissions on previously unpublished research work. Example areas include but are not limited to: 
• Open Data Analysis and Medical Knowledge Discovery
• Knowledge Representation
• Decision Support, Intelligent systems, Recommendation Systems
• Linked Data, Big Data, Analytics and Everywhere Data Management
• Systems Integration and Security
• Biomedical Signal and Image Processing and Machine Vision
• Clinical and Healthcare Services Research
• Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) in Healthcare
