The 36th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBC’14) will be held from August 26-30, 2014 at the Sheraton Hotel & Towers, Chicago, Illinois, USA. The overall theme of the conference is “Discovering, Innovating, and Engineering Future Biomedicine.” It will cover diverse topics from cutting-edge biomedical and healthcare technology research and development, clinical applications, to biomedical education. The conference program will consist of high-profile plenary/keynote lectures, symposia, workshops, invited sessions, oral and poster sessions, and exhibitions. All papers will be peer reviewed; accepted full-length (4 page) papers will appear in the Conference Proceedings and be indexed by IEEE Xplore and Medline/PubMed. Accepted 1-page papers will be presented as posters in specially designated “late breaking research” sessions.
