2nd International Conference on Health Information Science

London, 26th- 27th March 2013, London, UK

The 2nd International Conference on Health Information Science (HIS 2013) provides a forum for disseminating and exchanging multidisciplinary research results in computer science/information technology and health science & services. It aims to integrate computer science with health science & services, coupling information science research with topics related to the modeling, design, development, integration, and management of health information systems and health services. It covers all aspects of the health information sciences and the systems that support this health information management and health service delivery. The scope includes:

1. medical/health/biomedicine information resources, such as patient medical records, devices and equipments, software and tools to capture, store, retrieve, process, analyse, optimize the use of information in the health domain;

2. data management, data mining, and knowledge discovery (in health domain), all of which play a key role in decision making, management of public health, examination of standards, privacy and security issues; and

3. development of new architectures and applications for health information systems.

Topics include, but not limited to:

Information systems including electronic health records, hospital information systems, data exchange and integration

Health service delivery, workflow

Data mining, knowledge discovery, decision making support

System interoperability, ontology and standardization


Biomedical informatics, Brain informatics

Telemedicine, Health data management

Health database and information-system integration

Health information extraction, Health information services

Health information-system modeling, design, and development

Health information visualization

Support tools and languages for health information-system development

Information system interface

Data integration, Data processing

Data federation, sharing, and mining

E-health care delivery

Distributed computing, Pervasive computing

Information storage and retrieval

Innovative applications

Integration of heterogeneous information sources

Agent systems

The proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS series (pending approval). Some selected papers will be recommended to Health Information Science and Systems Journal (Springer and BMC publisher)


In addition to technical contributions, HIS?13 invites proposals for workshops, panels, tutorials, industry presentations. For workshops, HIS'13 will provide administrative support for workshop room booking, registration, and publication. All papers accepted by HIS?13 workshops will be published in a combined volume of Lecturer Notes in Computer Science series published by Springer (pending for approval). Proposals or industry papers should be sent as e-mail attachments to

Abstract due: October 23, 2012
Full paper due: October 30, 2012
Acceptance notification: January 7, 2013
Camera-ready copy: January 20, 2013
Workshop Proposals: September 15, 2012
Panel/Tutorial Proposals: December 5, 2012


HIS'13 invites papers describing original contributions in all fields of Health Information Science related research and applications. All submissions should be in English. Submission of a paper should be regarded as an undertaking that, should the paper be accepted, at least one author will attend the conference to present the work. Paper submission will be electronic through the HIS13 Web site. Papers should be submitted in LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer Science) format (style files are available at LNCS Authors Instructions) as PostScript or PDF files and may not exceed 12 pages.
