DMAH 2020 : Sixth International Workshop on Data Management and Analytics for Medicine and Healthcare
Call For Papers
Healthcare enterprises are producing large amounts of data through electronic medical records, medical imaging, health insurance claims, surveillance, and others. Such data have high potential to transform current healthcare to improve healthcare quality and prevent diseases, and advance biomedical research. Medical Informatics is an interdisciplinary field that studies and pursues the effective use of medical data, information, and knowledge for scientific inquiry, problem solving and decision making, driven by efforts to improve human health and well being.
The goal of the workshop is to bring people in the field cross-cutting information management and medical informatics to discuss innovative data management and analytics technologies highlighting end-to-end applications, systems, and methods to address problems in healthcare, public health, and everyday wellness, with clinical, physiological, imaging, behavioral, environmental, and omic - data, and data from social media and the Web. It will provide a unique opportunity for interaction between information management researchers and biomedical researchers for the interdisciplinary field.
The workshop is held in conjuction with the 46th International Conference on Very Large Databases, for more information please see https://vldb2020.org/
This workshop welcomes papers that address fundamental research issues for complex medical data environments, data management and analytical methods, systems and applications. A number of invited papers will also be solicited.
Topics of interest include, but not limited to:
Big data management for medical data;
Blockchain for healthcare;
Biomedical data integration;
