Call for Contributions
1. Inform the Chair: with the Title of your Contribution
2. Submission URL: https://www.iariasubmit.org/conferences/submit/newcontribution.php?event=SIMUL+2021+Special
Please select Track Preference as HMSIM
3. Note: For 2021, all events will be held in a hybrid mode: on site or virtual choices (live, prerecorded videos, voiced presentation slides, and .pdf slides). We hope for better times allowing us to return to the traditional on site scientific events. However, we are ready to adapt any which way the conditions dictate.
HMSIM: Healthcare and Medical Simulation
Prof. Dr. Michel A. Audette, Old Dominion University – Norfolk, USA
SIMUL 2021: The Thirteenth International Conference on Advances in System Simulation
October 03 – 07, 2021 – Barcelona, Spain
Medical and healthcare simulation span a variety of areas where medicine converges with Modeling and Simulation (M&S). Computer-based medical simulation emphasizes the application of computers to synthesizing the response of tissues to therapy, which represents a trade-off between fidelity to real tissue response and computational efficiency. High-fidelity medical/surgical simulation is typically used to provide experienced clinicians, including surgeons, with insight on how to optimize treatment of the patient, while high-efficiency simulation emphasizes real-time interactivity for haptics, typically used in conjunction with Virtual Reality (VR) visualization for skill acquisition and training. In both cases, a computer visualization of the anatomy is needed, however in the interactive case based on VR, this visualization must be also responsive in real-time, which presupposes highly efficient therapy models (e.g., cutting models) as well as relatively sparse anatomical models and collision models, where the latter determines where the therapy takes place, in conjunction with the pose of the haptic device. A related research area is the segmentation of medical images that map intensities to tissues and discretization (meshing) that converts tissues to elements.
Healthcare simulation is used to denote two areas that complement the above-described medical simulation. One the one hand, it is used to designate mannequin-based training systems and part-trainers, whose physical implementation is intended to develop proprioceptive understanding of therapies. On the other, this term also represents medical processes at a large scale, such as emergency rooms, and hospitals, to formulate an understanding of bottlenecks in patient treatment and improve efficiencies.
This track is open to comtributions in the following areas in particular, although this is not necessarily an exhaustive list:
• Simulation for healthcare systems
• Simulation of medical processes
• Simulation for care learning
• Simulation for elderly
• Sensing-based patient simulation
• Haptics-driven interactive simulation
• Predictive simulation
• Simulation training methods
• Age-based healthcare simulation
• Patient surgery simulation
• Therapy simulation
• Simulation patient safety
• Simulation of emergency situations
• Calibration of healthcare simulation tools
• Integrating simulation tools
• Interactive simulation tools
