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
We call for original and unpublished research contributions of manuscripts to the workshop following the Springer LNCS/LNAI manuscript submission guidelines (available at The outstanding papers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.
