Call For Papers

PAKDD Workshop on Data Mining and Decision Analytics for Public Health and Wellness

In conjunction with the 18th Pacific-Asia Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (PAKDD 2014) in Tainan, Taiwan, on May 13, 2014.

Important Dates

Jan. 6, 2014: Paper submission deadline
Feb. 5, 2014: Author notification
Feb. 19, 2014: Camera-ready due

Aims and Scope

The objective of this workshop is to serve as a venue for researchers to discuss how data mining and analytics methods can contribute to improving public health quality in clinical, medical/biomedical, and healthcare systems in smart ways, including digital epidemiology, evidence-based medicine, personalized treatment and healthcare, and syndromic surveillance and control of diseases. In addition to mining statistical regularities, associations, or causalities from large-scale health-related datasets, it would be more desirable to further investigate how the results can effectively and efficiently support decision-making, system modeling, optimization, and simulation in various healthcare systems.

Topics of Interest

o Large-scale data acquisition and management issues for public health
o Social and other network-based analysis for public health
o Medical big data mining and innovative applications
o Mining risk patterns in medical data
o Mental and physical health data integration
o Biomarker discovery and biomedical data mining
o Clinical data mining for practice knowledge building
o Data mining from clinical decision-making, and practitioner reflection
o Data mining from genetic data of diseases
o Data mining for disease profiling and personalized treatment
o Data mining for (active) syndromic surveillance
o Data mining for infectious/chronic disease epidemiology and control
o Data mining for exploring hidden patterns in clinical systems
o Data mining for medical/biomedical, and healthcare systems
o Spatiotemporal data exploration and mining of diseases
o Unstructured data mining in medicine and healthcare
o Semantic data mining in medicine and healthcare
o Scalable data integration in medicine and healthcare
o Evidence-based decision-support systems
o Healthcare knowledge abstraction, classification, and summarization
o Healthcare knowledge computerization, execution, inference, and representation

Submission Information

Paper submission system is at https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=dmda2014.
We call for original and unpublished research contributions of manuscripts to the workshop following the Springer LNCS/LNAI manuscript submission guidelines (available athttp://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html). The outstanding papers will be included in a LNCS/LNAI post Proceedings of PAKDD Workshops published by Springer.
Each submitted paper should include an abstract up to 200 words and be not longer than 12 single-spaced pages with 10pt font size. All papers must be submitted electronically through the paper submission system in PDF format only. The submitted paper should NOT adhere to the double-blind review policy.
Note: Submitting a paper to the workshop means that if the paper is accepted, at least one author should attend the workshop to present the paper. For no-show authors, their affiliations will receive a notification.
