Call For Papers

Organized as part of the 1st Amsterdam Privacy Conference, the Netherlands from Oct 7-10, 2012, the first Workshop on Engineering Electronic Health Record Solutions (WEES) intends to become a lively forum for discussing real-world problems associated with the design and implementation of large-scale systems for exchanging medical information.

Over recent years, increasingly large-scale systems for health information exchange and communication have been designed and built, ranging from small systems to support collaborating professionals at a regional scale, to very large-scale, even National systems. Systems at an European and U.S. scale are currently being considered. Systems at this scale, particularly for the exchange of sensitive information, bring in an unprecedented range of problems from usability to scalability to availability to security to privacy.

WEES intends to be the premier scientific forum to discuss these problems. The workshop invites contributions from all scientific disciplines, including computer science, healthcare, sociology and psychology. However, papers with technical merit, tangible results, or concrete practical solutions are preferred. Privacy and security issues are particularly relevant. Also, experience papers describing real-world systems are invited.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- security architecture and analysis
- requirements analysis
- authentication, authorization, accountability
- auditing and provenance, data access tracking
- transparency
- involving patients in authorization and information disclosure
- embedding and implementing patient rights
- health information exchange systems
- experiences with consent models
- scalability, e.g., centralized vs. decentralized approaches
- usability from the perspective of professionals and patients
- stakeholder influence on design decisions
- privacy impact and risk assessments
- data breach detection and notification
- data representation, standardization
- semantics, segmentation and access control
- Hospital Information Systems after I vs. Finland
- Health information technology in developing countries
- push, pull or hybrid communication models
- personal health records
- data ownership, data storage, and data management
- impact of scale and design on security and privacy

Submission procedure:
The workshop accepts the following types of submissions:
- 1 or 2-page abstracts for oral or poster presentations
- position papers up to 4 pages, presenting a challenging or novel idea related to engineering real-world large-scale EHR systems
- full papers up to 12 pages, presenting more polished or mature research results, or experience papers.

Paper submissions will be peer reviewed and, if accepted, included in the APC conference proceedings. When sufficient high-quality papers are accepted, we will seek a high-quality special journal issue or volume to publish selected papers in.

Submissions take place using the easychair conference management system, via the following link:
