Chairman welcome note

Dear ICBHI 2022 participants,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Concepción, Chile, to the 5th International Conference on Biomedical and Health Informatics (ICBHI 2022).

We expect ICBHI 2022 will be an opportunity to exchange ideas, experiences and lessons learned after being hit with the worst pandemic in the last century. Biomedical informatics has definitively played a key role on different fronts, from medical care to contact tracing.

As usual, we will have a scientific challenge competition. The best teams are encouraged to present their findings at our conference, where we will be presenting awards to the first 2 places. This year, we will work on BCG signals. We invite you to check our challenge description in this website.

Concepción, founded in 1550, is the second largest city in Chile and is in the geographic center of the country. It is home to 13 universities and provides many cultural and historic landmarks that we would like to share with you. We hope you can join us in-person or remotely, as this will be a hybrid event.

I would like to thank the IFMBE Working Group on Health Informatics and eHealth, the Asociación Chilena de Informática en Salud (ACHISA), and our conference committee for the excellent work and expertise shared to the organization of ICBHI 2022.

Enjoy your stay with us.
