Invitation

EITA-New Media and Bio 2014--The 2014 EITA Conference on New Media and Biomedical Research will be held on Thursday-Friday, July 31-August 1, 2014 at the Whitaker Building (Building 56) and the Green Building (Building 54), Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, Massachusetts, U.S.A. The theme for the EITA-New Media and Bio 2014 is "Recent Advances in New Media and Biomedical Research". Please visit the website at http://www.eitc.org/ for more conference details.

The rise of new media has increased communication between people all over the world and the Internet. It has allowed people to express themselves through (at least for now) Internet, blogs, websites, computer multimedia, pictures, and other user-generated media. Cultural heritage shapes relationships with our neighbors and with other communities around the world. The use of new media in the service of cultural heritage is known as virtual heritage. Virtual heritage is a mix of cultural heritage with information and communication technologies (ICT). We believe that respect for, and celebration of, our diverse cultural heritage promotes human understanding and economic development in an increasingly interdependent world.
 

In the 21st century, groundbreaking research and discovery in the Biomedical Research are more interdisciplinary than ever. Biomedical Science and Engineering Research represents the research activities in the areas of Medicine, Public Health, Biology, Pharmacology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Physics, Engineering, New Materials, Information and Communication Technology (ICT), and Health-related topics. These scientists work to understand the biological principles that govern the function of the human body, to discover the mechanisms of disease, and to find innovative ways to treat or cure disease by developing advanced diagnostic tools or new therapeutic strategies. The increased longevity of humans over the past century can be significantly attributed to advances resulting from Biomedical Sciences Research.

The main purpose of the EITA-New Media and Bio 2014 conference is to connect the dots to form a big picture for vision and talents. This conference, bringing together a global network of today's best thinkers, visionaries and thought leaders, serves as a multi-disciplinary forum for the discussion and exchange of information on the research, development, and applications on all topics related to New Media, Biomedical Science and Engineering.

We are pleased to invite you to attend the EITA-New Media and Bio 2014 and submit proposals (invited talks only) for papers, panels, demonstrations, and SIG discussions. The Conference Review Policy requires that each proposal will be peer-reviewed by for inclusion in the conference program, and CD-ROM proceedings.

The EITA-New Media and Bio 2014 conference is structured around a number of sub-themes that include -but are not limited to, the following topics:

 

 

as they relate to the research and development aspects of New Media, Biomedical Science and Engineering, etc.. The long lists are not meant to be all-inclusive. Rather, they should be used to stimulate and encourage other ideas and possibilities.

 

Presentation Categories

The Technical Program includes a wide range of interesting and useful activities designed to facilitate the exchange of ideas and information.

 

  • Keynote Speakers
  • Invited Panels/Speakers
  • Papers
  • Panels
  • Demonstrations

 

Proceedings

All paper submissions (invited talks only) must be written in English and will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published in the Proceedings (CD-ROM formats) as well as on the EITA-New Media and Bio 2014 website. You may download the Proceedings through the Internet. These proceedings serve as major sources in the global high-tech community, reflecting the current state of the art in the disciplines.
