International Workshop on Semantic Technology for eHealth (STeH2013)


Information and communication technologies (ICT) are widely used for
health care. As 'e-Health technologies', they have played an
increasingly important role in the practice of medicine and clinical
research. The term e-Health encompasses a range of services and
systems in medicine/healthcare and information technology.
Applications of e-Health include research, educating the health care
workforce (e.g. e-Learning), treating patients, tracking diseases and
monitoring public health. However, the lack of integration and
semantic interoperability among most of the information systems that
are used creates inefficiencies and application limits for eHealth,
which challenge the ability of the health care industry to reach the
stated goals: to supply continuous care that is personalized for each
patient and to put new knowledge into practice by translating clinical
research results from 'bench to bedside'.

Semantic Web technology is steadily becoming a de facto solution for
semantic interoperability in medicine and healthcare. This
international workshop on Semantic Technology for eHealth (STeH) is
designed to be a discussion forum for researchers who are interested
in the research and development of semantic applications for medicine
and health care.

Event Information

The list of the covered topics includes but not limited to:

    Biomedical ontologies and terminologies
    Biomedical ontology mapping
    Development of semantic applications for medicine and healthcare
    Semantic interoperability for Electronic Health Records (EHRs)
    Semantic interoperability for clinical trial data
    Patient information sharing for Multi-Disciplinary Teams and transmural care
    Decision Support Systems in medicine
    Semantically-enabled systems in medicine and healthcare
    Semantic research for biomedical science
    Semantic technology for telemedicine
    Health knowledge management
    Computer-interpretable clinical guidelines
    Computer-interpretable clinical trial eligibility criteria
    Semantic annotation of medical images and documents
    Rule-based formalizations for eHealth systems
    Reasoning and processing of medical knowledge
    Temporal/spatial reasoning and data processing in eHealth
    Big data and big ontology in eHealth
    Semantic technology for Personal Health Records and patient empowerment

The workshop will take place during the 14th International Conference
on Web Information System Engineering (WISE2013), October 13th-15th,
Nanjing, China, as a full-day event.

Please note that for every accepted paper at least one of the authors
must attend the workshop and must register for the workshop and the
main conference. Submission of a paper is not required for attendance
at the workshop. However, in the event that the workshop cannot
accommodate all who would like to participate, those who have
submitted a paper will be given priority.
