Call For Papers

The field of healthcare is undergoing a revolution with scientific and engineering advancements seen simultaneously at all informatics levels. Healthcare IT researchers are mining information from electronic patient records and clinical guidelines to better understand the relationship between symptoms/conditions, diseases, medications/treatments and outcome. Improved diagnosis of diseases and conditions is being addressed by diagnostic imaging researchers through novel techniques for imaging and analysis. Finally, advances in systems biology research is enabling personalized medicine diagnostics and therapeutics helping revolutionize treatment for major indications like cancer and heart disease. The HISB conference is being proposed to foster an integrative approach to healthcare by the cross-fertilization of ideas among researchers in the respective areas of healthcare informatics, imaging and systems biology. The confluence of these fields is expected to not only advance the state of understanding of diseases and outcomes but also explore their relationships on a personalized biological basis.

The goal of this conference is to bring together researchers in healthcare informatics, medical imaging, and systems biology to not only present the state-of-the-art research in their fields but also to create synergies among the community to close the loop in the biological causal analysis of diseases, their detection through advanced imaging and the analysis of their relationships with treatments and outcomes. We will solicit original, high-quality submissions that address innovative research and development along the three tracks of healthcare informatics, systems biology and diagnostic imaging with but not limited to the following suggested topics for submission:
Track 1: Healthcare Informatics:

* Medical knowledge representation & reasoning
* Relating diseases to treatment and outcomes
* Clinical decision support
* Clinical data mining informatics
* Clinical data integration
* Text mining and natural language analysis of medical data
* Public health informatics and Bio-surveillance
* Consumer-oriented health informatics tools and applications
* Telehealth
* Medical knowledge extraction from EMR
* Measuring/improving outcomes in patients

Track 3: Systems Biology:

* Linking the genotype to phenotype
* Translation bioinformatics
* Functional genomics
* Regulatory networks
* Computational approaches to Pharmacogenomics
* Visualization of biological networks
* Regulatory genome architecture and non-coding mutations in human disease
* High throughput imaging (e.g. RNAi)-derived data analysis
* Realizing personalized medicine
* Tools for systems biology research

Track 2: Imaging & Analysis:

* Novel diagnostic imaging techniques
* Mining of multimodal medical data (X-ray, MRI, CT, echo videos, time series data)
* Algorithms for indexing and retrieval of data from multimodal medical databases
* Machine learning of disease correlations from mining multimodal data
* Disease model-building and clinical decision support systems based on multimodal analysis
* Image/Curve/Surface/Volume Registration
* Biomedical Image Motion Analysis
* Multidimensional Data Visualization
* Molecular and cellular image analysis
* Biomedical Image Databases / Biomedical Image Retrieval
* Diffusion Tensor Image Analysis
* Enabling healthcare informatics through diagnostic imaging
* Combining diagnostic imaging with systems biology


Paper Formatting: Papers are limited to eight pages. Please use the instructions from IEEE Computer Society website to format the papers. The conference chairs reserve the right to reject papers violating the paper length and the formatting instructions outright, without review.

Blind review: HISB reviewing is double blind: authors do not know the names of the reviewers of their papers, and reviewers do not know the names of the authors. Please see the author kit for detailed explanations of how to ensure this.

Submission: HISB is using an online submission system .

Supplemental material: Supplemental material submission is optional. This material may include: videos of results that cannot be included in the main paper, anonymized related submissions to other conferences and journals, and appendices or technical reports containing extended proofs and mathematical derivations that are not essential for understanding of the paper. Contents of the supplemental material should be referred to appropriately in the paper and that reviewers are not obliged to look at it.

Simultaneous submissions: Our policy is that in submitting a paper, authors implicitly acknowledge that no paper of substantially similar content has been or will be submitted to another conference or workshop until HISB decisions are made.
