From the 36 societies of the IEEE (the biggest engineering non-profit society of the World with more than 400.000 members), one of the most active one, the IEEE Systems Man and Cybernetics (SMC) Society, has approved a new Technical Committee (TC) under the Cybernetics branch, named as Cyber-Medical Systems (CMS).
The TC was initiated by two professors of the Obuda University, Dr. habil. Levente Kovács and Dr. Imre Rudas at the beginning of 2016 and the SMC board investigated at different levels before acceptance the TC’s technical novelty, relevance and the international scientific impact of its proposed members.
The aim of the approved TC is to serve its members and the society at large by promoting the theory and practice of personalized healthcare. Cyber-Medical Systems connects physical healthcare systems with computational components, a case of special smart systems involving topics of model-based healthcare treatments, physiological control systems, medical knowledge-based systems, medical robotics, cloud computing.
The TC’s members are represented by 49 researchers throughout the world with a declared aim of strengthening the intelligent healthcare research directions both from academic (high impact publications, corresponding special sessions at relevant international conferences) and industrial fields. However, the TC is opened to anybody willing to actively support the declared research directions.
The chairs of the TC are professors Dr. habil. Levente Kovács and Dr. Imre Rudas from Obuda University, Dr. Hamido Fujita from Japan and Dr. Clara Ionescu from Belgium. More information can be found on the official web-page of the TC, http://www.ieeesmc.org/technical-activities/cybernetics/cyber-medical-systems.
We congratulate for the approval and wishing success in the further work!
