Institute of Complex Medical Engineering (ICME) is a nonprofit organization established in 2005 in Takamatsu, Japan. In the coming years of the 21st century, the theory and practice of medicine must attain greater reliability, safety, flexibility and expandability to support the healthy lives of people around the globe. To attain those goals in an efficient manner, advanced scientific knowledge and multiple innovative technologies must be integrated in health care and medicine. In other words, the objective of the institute is to construct a common solid platform for researchers, practitioners and students in both the fields of medicine and engineering.
Since 2005, the ICME has held a variety of conferences and symposiums per year. It is a great pleasure to welcome you to the 9th ICME International Conference on Complex Medical Engineering (CME 2015) in Okayama and Kyoto, Japan. The objective of CME 2015 is to provide a forum for researchers, educators, engineers, neurologists, medical staff and government officials involved in the general areas of biomedical engineering to disseminate their latest research results and exchange views on the future research directions of these fields. We hope that this conference proves to be a very rewarding and valuable technical meeting.
I am looking forward to the participation of all researchers and strongly hope that through everyone's cooperation, this meeting succeeds and helps mark our era.
