Call For Papers

Dr MingJian Tang (Data Miner, Department of Human Services, Australia)
Dr D. Wayne Murray (Principal Data Miner, Department of Human Services, Australia)

With recent technological advances, a wide range of health-related data becomes ever more accessible in electronic forms. On one hand, more and more organizations (e.g. government agencies, insurance companies, hospitals and medical institues) have substantial growth in their analytical and intelligence capabilities. On the other hand, the complex nature of healthcare data coupled with sophisticated domain knowledge pose unique and unprecedented challenges to both research community and industry. Intelligent systems along with novel approaches are urged for tackling these fundamentally important problems.

This special session aims at bringing together researchers and industry practitioners in the fields of fraud detection, knowledge discovery, evidence-based decision making, privacy preservation, social networks and text/semantics mining to address particular problems and challenges in the context of health data and environment.

The accepted papers are expected to be original and of high-quality, which can not only enhance the existing knowledge in healthcare data mining but also bridge the gap between theory and practice.

1. Fraud and outlier detection
2. Evidence-based systems
3. Privacy preservation
4. Social networks
5. Machine learning
6. Expert systems
7. Text mining
8. Evolutionary computing and systems
9. eHealth informatics and data management
10. Large-scale data mining
11. Agent-based modeling
12. Strategic planning

Authors are invited to electronically submit their papers, written in English, of up to 10 single spaced pages, presenting the results of original research or innovative applications relevant to the conference. Practical experiences with state-of-the-art AI methodologies are also acceptable when they reflect lessons of unique value to the conference attendees. Shorter works, up to 6 pages, may be submitted as short papers representing work in progress or suggesting possible research directions.

All paper submissions will be done electronically as indicated in the conference web site. All papers will be peer reviewed and final copies of papers for inclusion in the conference proceedings will be published in a bound volume by Springer-Verlag in their 'Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence' series.

The submission website is available as follows:

Alison Sutinen, Department of Human Services, Australia
Andrea(Yuxiu) Luo, University of Melbourne, Australia
Sumudu Mendis, Department of Human Services, Australia
Yingsong Hu, Department of Human Services, Australia
Yin Shan, Department of Human Services, Australia
Xi Li, La Trobe University, Australia
