http://www.ihic2013.org
co-located with the International Joint Conference on Artificial
Intelligence (IJCAI) 2013
IMPORTANT DATES
– Submission deadline:     May 15, 2013
– Acceptance Notification:  June 5, 2013
– Conference Dates:         August 3-4, 2013
 
** INTRODUCTION
Advancing informatics for healthcare and healthcare applications has become a global research priority.  There is increased effort to transform reactive care to proactive and preventive care, clinic-centric to patient-centered practice, training-based interventions to globally aggregated evidence, and episodic response to continuous well-being monitoring and maintenance. IHIC 2013 aims to provide a forum for health informatics researchers and practitioners to discuss fundamental principles, algorithms and applications of intelligent data acquisition, processing, and analysis of healthcare data. IHIC 2013 is particularly interested in papers discussing innovative healthcare informatics applications, case studies, and information and knowledge management techniques, in which the approaches are accompanied by an in-depth computational evaluation with real world data.  IHIC 2013 encourages broad participation from researchers and professionals from a diverse range of disciplines including medical informatics, bioinformatics, electronic health records, epidemiology, health statistics, health data mining, public health, health economics, health-related behavioral studies, computer science, and information systems, among others.
The conference will be held in China and expects global as well as Asian participation.
