== Special Issue "Managing Interoperability and compleXity in Health
Systems" with J. of Biomedical Semantics ==

We are inviting submissions for an issue of the Journal of Biomedical
Semantics devoted to the topic of applying ontologies and Semantic-Web
technologies for the meaningful use of Electronic Health Record (EHR) data.
The issue will focus especially on ways in which ontologies and Semantic-Web
technologies can contribute to breaking down the barriers between different
sorts of information relevant to the understanding and treatment of disease,
ranging from information deriving from experimental biology and model
organism research to clinical trial data and information of the sort
contained in electronic health records.

The recent large-scale deployment of Electronic Health Records (EHR) across
medical institutions provides new opportunities of secondary use of EHR.
Issues of data-mining in large heterogeneous clinical data-sets, information
retrieval and extraction in multiple medical repositories, the management of
complexity and the coherent update of knowledge in medicine, clinical
standards interoperability in distributed health systems and the patient
Electronic Health Record (EHR) are now becoming critical to implementing
enterprise and nationwide health systems.

The focus of this supplement issue will focus on semantic mining,
annotation, and analysis of EHR data. Topic of interest will include but not
limited to:
#    Data Mining, Information Extraction, and Semantic Annotation of EHR
#     Medical Knowledge Representation and Reasoning
#    Expert and Clinical Decision Support Systems Using Semantic Web
#     Interoperability in Distributed healthcare Systems
#    Clinical Information Standards (e.g. HL7) Clinical Terminologies,
Classifications (e.g. ICD 10) and biomedical ontologies  (e.g. SNOMED - CT)
#     Patient Cohort Identification
#     Personalized Medicine via high throughput data integration


===Important Dates:===

March 15, 2012 Letter of Intent Due (optional)
April 15, 2012 Submission Deadline

===Peer-review Process:===
All submitted papers will go through a rigorous peer-review process with at
least three reviewers. All submissions should follow the guidelines for
authors available at the Journal of Biomedical Semantics web site
(http://www.jbiomedsem.com/manuscript). Please prepare your paper using the
JBMS format: http://www.jbiomedsem.com/authors/instructions/research.
JBMS╣s editorial policy is also outlined on that page and will be strictly
followed by special issue reviewers.

===Submission Process:===
Optional letters of intent should be sent to tao.cui@mayo.edu by March 15th,
2012. This will assist in assessing the number of likely submissions and in
planning for the review process when papers are submitted. Authors must
submit their papers via

https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=mixhs11, and select the JBMS
special issue track.

no later than April 15, 2012.

The submitting author must confirm, at the time of submission, that they
will organize payment of BMC article processing charge
(http://www.jbiomedsem.com/about/apcfaq) should the article be accepted for
