2019 - Information and health sciences
In our digital world, information science plays a leading role in many areas and particularly in the field of health
In our digital world, information science plays a leading role in many areas and particularly in the field of health. Here are just a few examples:
- tomorrow's medicine will use data science to analyze heterogeneous masses of data on diseases, patients, genomics, etc. to propose a personalized, preventive, predictive and participatory approach;
- traditional medical imaging (EEG, MRI, ultrasound) is regularly being enriched by new, more precise and faster techniques moving towards 3D or 4D imaging;
- robotics is increasingly providing valuable assistance for surgeons.
Obviously, the development of these new approaches requires multidisciplinary research involving researchers in information science and biological and medical sciences.
The thematic year and some of its different facets will be illustrated by two conferences open to the public and three scientific conferences in 2019 and early 2020.
