The 2014 International Conference on Brain Informatics and Health (BIH 2014) will be a part of the 2014 Web Intelligence Congress (WIC 2014). WIC 2014 will be held at the historical Central Campus of the University of Warsaw, Warsaw, Poland, between 11th and 14th of August 2014.
Brain Informatics and Health (BIH) aims to develop and disseminate understandings of novel intelligent computing formalisms, techniques, and technologies in the special application contexts of brain and health/well-being related studies and services. It is devoted to interdisciplinary studies on BIH, covering computational, logical, cognitive, neuro-psysiological, biological, physical, ecological, and social perspectives.
The series of Brain Informatics conferences was started in China, in 2006, with the International Workshop on Web Intelligence meets Brain Informatics (WImBI'06). The next events have been held in China, Canada and Japan. Since 2012 the conference topics have been extended with major elements of Health Informatics in order to investigate some common challenges in both areas. In 2014, this series of events will visit Europe for the first time.
WIC 2014 as a whole provides a leading international forum that brings together researchers and practitioners from diverse fields with the purpose of exploring the fundamental roles, interactions as well as practical impacts of Artificial Intelligence and Advanced Information Technology. Web Intelligence has been recognized as one of the most important and promising directions for scientific research and development of solutions that contribute to creation of the Knowledge-based Society. WIC 2014 will also include events focused on Intelligent Agents, Active Media as well as Brain Informatics and Health, in order to increase the cross-fertilization of ideas from different communities.
In addition to four federated conferences the workshops and special sessions organized as a part of WIC 2014 create an opportunity to exchange ideas, identify emerging challenges and present novel results from different domains in more focused manner.
