The 2nd IEEE Conference on Healthcare Informatics, Imaging, and Systems
Biology

(HISB): Analyzing Big Data for Healthcare and Biomedical Sciences

UCSD, La Jolla, California, September 27-28, 2012

http://www.ittc.ku.edu/HISB12

 

Personalizing medicine and improving healthcare relies on new biologic
discoveries, algorithms, information systems, and technologies from multiple
fields. The goal of this conference is to bring together researchers in
healthcare informatics, medical imaging, and human systems biology to not
only present the state-of-the-art research in their fields, but also create
synergies among the community to close the loop in the biological analysis
of health and disease, detect patterns through advanced imaging and
monitoring devices, and analyze their relationships with wellness and
clinical outcomes.

 

We solicit original, high-quality submissions that address innovative
research and applications along the tracks of (1) healthcare informatics and
mobile health, (2) imaging informatics, and (3) bioinformatics and
human-based systems biology. Authors of accepted paper can opt towards
publication of their paper in IEEE Explorer (EI indexed), or to publish only
the abstract in the HISB Proceedings (so that the paper can be submitted to
a journal). The goal is to feature the best work in the conference and get
feedback from the audience. Selected papers will be invited for submission
to the Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association (JAMIA).
Below is a non-exhaustive list of topics.
