CBR in the Health Sciences

Health science domains have provided fertile ground for CBR research and development since the earliest days of case-based reasoning. New advances into health science frontiers ensure that CBR will continue to play a vital role well into the future. This eighth Workshop on CBR in the Health Sciences aims to:

  • Provide a forum for identifying important contributions and opportunities for research on the application of CBR to the health sciences
  • Promote the systematic study of how to apply CBR to the health sciences
  • Showcase applications of CBR in the health sciences

Date 4 September 2012 morning

Room Batiment Nautibus, Pink Room

Stefania Montani, University of Piemonte Orientale, Italy
Cindy Marling, Ohio University, USA
Isabelle Bichindaritz, University of Washington, USA
