  • Chairman welcome note

    Dear ICBHI 2019 participants,


    It is my pleasure to welcome you to Taipei, and the 3rd International Conference on Biomedical and Health Informatics (ICBHI 2019).


    It is expected that ICBHI 2019 will catalyze the personal health systems development methodology, and thus achieve convergence and integration mechanisms of the main scientific areas for the enabling of precision medicine. There is a high demand for managing new findings and ICT capabilities as well as integrating competencies and thematic areas, which are essential in biomedical and health informatics.


    I would like to thank the IFMBE WG on Health Informatics and eHealth, Taiwanese Society of Biomedical Engineering, and Chung Yuan Christian University (CYCU) for the excellent work and expertise committed to the organization of the ICBHI 2019.


    Taipei, a vibrant and rich culturally and scientifically city, welcomes you.

    Enjoy your stay with us.
