CALL FOR PAPERS: International Symposium on Network Analysis and Mining for Health Informatics, Biomedicine and Bioinformatics, Dec18-21, 2013, Shanghai, CHINA

Net-HI-BI-BI 2013 - In conjunction with BIBM 2013

Submission link:

 The advancement in technology and computational science influenced a
 wide range of fields, including research in clinical leading to health
 informatics as emerging vital research area which is attracting more
 attention in academia and industry. Health informatics combines
 computational science and the clinical world for better treatment of
 patients; it deals with resources, devices, and methodologies required
 for optimizing the acquisition, storage, maintenance, retrieval, and
 use of healthcare information and resources for effective diagnosis
 and treatment of patients.

 The target of this research track is to bring together professionals,
 researchers and practitioners in the area of health informatics to
 present, discuss, share the latest finding in the field, and exchange
 ideas that address real-world problems with real-world solutions.

 Topics covered by Net-HI-BI-BI 2013 include but are not limited to
 work in progress as well as cutting-edge and novel findings on the
 latest trends and developments in health informatics, encompassing
 areas such as:

    Analytics for Visualizing and summarizing large patient data in EMR.
    Benchmarking of big data infrastructure in healthcare.
    Big data and analytics from home monitoring devices.
    Big data in semantics and bio-text mining.
    Big data influence on systems biology, protein structure prediction, Drug discovery.
    Case Studies for Hadoop based healthcare analytics.
    Clinical and hospital human resource management and performance analysis.
    Computational biomedicine, genomics, proteomics, transcriptomics, metabolimics, sociogenomics.
    Computer aided diagnosis.
