Call For Papers

The Fifth International Workshop in e-Healthcare Information Security
(e-HISec 2014)

To be hosted in Conjunction with
The International Conference on Information Society (i-Society 2014)
November 10-12, 2014, London, UK

In recent years substantial funding has been made available towards e-healthcare initiatives worldwide. The move towards e-healthcare is envisaged to reduce the cost of provision of healthcare, improve quality of care and reduce medical errors. Despite all these advantages the security concerns are real and going to increase as the rate in which we digitise information and use the web for critical applications increases. Major security issues in e-healthcare include patient privacy, trust, and quality-assurance. These and other security concerns are affecting the adoption rate and usage of e-healthcare information systems. Therefore, unless deliberate efforts are taken to secure these systems from design to implementation most of the development achieved to date may not be realised and rolled out to the real world.

This workshop will bring together researchers and industry participants who are involved either in the design, development, and implementation of novel secure e-healthcare information systems or in the research that addresses the key questions in the enhancement of privacy and security of e-healthcare information. We expect the work that will be presented in this workshop to address security and privacy problems and suggest solutions that can be used in distributed and heterogeneous computer systems as well as in mobile devices, which will characterise the emerging e-healthcare environment.

The security and privacy issues in e-healthcare information systems that will be presented and discussed in this workshop are becoming increasingly important. These issues will also have significant effect in other emerging application areas such as cloud computing and big data. We, therefore, welcome original, high-quality research contributions that advance the state-of-the-art in the design, development, deployment, evaluation and understanding of secure e-healthcare information systems.

Topics of interest include but not limited to:
- Electronic Patient Records
- Federated Electronic Health Records
- Privacy and Security concerns in e-healthcare information systems
- Privacy Enhancing Technologies in healthcare
- Trust concerns in e-healthcare information systems
- Models for Privacy and Trust
- Privacy and Security standards for e-healthcare information systems
- Design principles of secure context-aware e-healthcare information systems
- How security addresses the legal and ethical issues in emerging e-healthcare information systems
- Techniques for the evaluation of e-healthcare systems
- Challenges in building secure e-healthcare information systems
- Advances in Telemedicine and Cyber medicine in e-healthcare
- Interoperability issues in e-healthcare
- Business intelligence in healthcare
- Access Control and Consent Management Models
- Privacy and Security issues on Telemedicine and Mobile Telemedicine
- Security issues for ICT-enabled Personal Health Systems
- Healthcare in Cloud Computing
- Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing in e-healthcare
- Usable, Accessible and Inclusive Design of healthcare information systems
- Mobile Devices and their use in healthcare information systems
- E-health services in smart environments (smart homes, smart medical institutions, smart cities)
- Secure e-healthcare software development
- Security Awareness on Medical Information
- Secure Management of Healthcare Information
- Ethical Issues in e-healthcare information systems
- E-Health for Developing Countries
- Healthcare Information Linkage
- Personal Health Records
- Biometrics in healthcare
