Professor Yao Shieh was invited to organize & chair an invited session of “Telemedicine” as well as to chair a plenary panel discussion of “consumer electronics @ healthcare” at the IEEE ICCE-Berlin 2013 conference (Sept. 8-11, 2013). This is an attempt of reaching out by the IEEE Consumer Electronics Society to make connection with healthcare. The invited session includes papers that depict the “Smart Clothes project” of Chang Gung University and an intelligent healthcare & promotion system, CareTogether Pro, developed at Chang Gung Memorial Hospital. The panel discussion features an unprecedented dialogue among consumer electronics engineers and healthcare professions in an IEEE conference. The panelists comprise a general surgeon who earned his MD degree from medical school of Stanford University, a professor from School of Medicine of Harvard University, an EE and system engineer graduated from MIT, a German University’s faculty with doctor of engineering degree and an EE engineer of PhD degree from TI research office in Germany. A trophy was awarded to Professor Shieh for the recognition of his contributions.
