CBMS is returning to the US after 5 years - and, at a premier health research and care delivery institution: Mayo Clinic Center for Tuberculosis - a WHO Collaborating Center in Digital health and Precision Medicine in Tuberculosis.
The 33rd IEEE International Symposium on Computer-Based Medical Systems (IEEE CBMS 2020) will be held at Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota, USA, from June 22 - 24 July 28 - 30, 2020.

Attracting a worldwide audience, CBMS is the premier conference for computer-based medical systems, and one of the main conferences within the fields of medical informatics and biomedical informatics. CBMS allows the exchange of ideas and technologies between academic and industrial scientists. The scientific program of IEEE CBMS 2020 will consist of regular and special track sessions with technical contributions reviewed and selected by an international programme committee, as well as, keynote talks delivered by leading experts in their fields. The CBMS 2020 edition also aims to host high-quality papers about industry and real case applications as well as allow to researchers leading international projects to show to the scientific community the main aims, goals and results of their projects.

The CBMS 2020 invites original unpublished scientific contributions that are not submitted concurrently to a journal or another conference. Studies should be conducted to good research practice standards with due regard to ethics in the study design. Example areas include but are not limited to:
