Tel Aviv University Public Forum 2022 150 150 IEEE EMBS

Symposia, panels, and posters will address healthcare’s greatest challenges and the role of data science and artificial intelligence

IEEE EMBS – Tel Aviv University Public Forum 2022, the first-ever interdisciplinary conference in data science and engineering in healthcare, medicine and biology today announced symposia dedicated to research and translational advances and challenges in healthcare focused data science.

Taking Place on Oct. 19-20, 2022, in Israel at Tel Aviv University and online, the conference will focus on the research and translational advances and challenges in healthcare focused data science.

The IEEE EMBS Public Forum on Data Science aims to highlight and discuss the challenges and opportunities of Data Science innovations in healthcare, medicine, and biology and how these innovations can be translated into cutting-edge healthcare and biomedical curricula.

The forum will offer designated symposia that include speaking sessions, live panels and poster sessions on topics ranging from the semantic integration and harmonization of complex and heterogeneous biomedical data, the development of scalable Data Science and Engineering infrastructure the development of smart AI algorithms that integrate biological/physiological models the need to build a more cohesive approach to deliver personalized medicine by integrating data science and management with a biological understanding of the related disease.

Each day of the forum will provide a unique platform for scientists, engineers, and students to focus on translational data science and engineering research and healthcare innovations, as well as the need for a paradigm shift in engineering and science education and their impact on healthcare and economic growth.
