Dear ICBHI 2017 participants


It is my pleasure to welcome you in Thessaloniki and the ICBHI 2017 conference. The ICBHI 2017 promises to be a wonderful and exciting event, including 50 paper presentations, 8 keynotes, one expert panel, two workshops, one scientific challenge, and ample opportunities to discuss and network.

It is expected that ICBHI 2017 will catalyze the personal health systems development methodology thus achieving convergence and integration mechanisms of the above mentioned main scientific areas for the enabling of precision medicine. The need for managing the new findings and capabilities, as well as integrating competencies and thematic areas are absolutely necessary for the area of biomedical and health informatics.

I would like to thank the IFMBE WG on Health Informatics and eHealth, and the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Lab of Computing Medical Informatics & Biomedical-Imaging Technologies for the superb work and expertise committed to the organization of the ICBHI 2017.
