4th International KES Conference
Innovation in Medicine and Healthcare



The KES International Conference on Innovation in Medicine and Healthcare (KES-InMed-16) will gather a multi-disciplinary group consisting of researchers and engineers, managers, students and practitioners from the medical arena, to discuss the ways that innovation, knowledge exchange and enterprise can be applied to issues relating to medicine, surgery, healthcare and the issues of an ageing population.

A central theme of the conference will be Smart Medical and Healthcare Systems which will cover the ways in which modern intelligent systems contribute to the solution of problems faced by healthcare and medical practitioners today, addressing the application of these systems through all of the strands of the event.


The conference proceedings will be published by Springer as book chapters in a volume of the KES Smart Innovation Systems and Technologies series, submitted for indexing in Scopus and Thomson-Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI) and the Web of Science.

The conference took place as part of the Smart Digital Futures 2016 multi-theme conference which groups AMSTA-16, IDT-16, IIMSS-16, InMed-16 and SEEL-16 in one venue.
