Call for Papers

Health data originate from a wide variety of heterogeneous data
sources which include medical literature, Electronic Medical Records
(EMRs), medical imaging data, time series data from ICU/in-hospital
sensors, insurance claims data, wearable sensors, mobile health
applications data, omics data, etc., just to name a few. However,
unlike many other domains much of these information remain in paper
form, lack common standards, are not shared and frequently hampered by
the lack of fool-proof de-identification for patient privacy. Much of
healthcare data remains hidden as unstructured data in the form of
clinical notes, imaging reports, patient narratives, and so on.

Effective integration and management of these multiple heterogeneous
data sources and mining them for actionable insights requires
inter-disciplinary research across multiple domains of computer and
medical sciences. The goal of this workshop is to bring together
researchers cross-cutting the fields of data management and medical
informatics to discuss the unique challenges in health care data
management and to propose novel and practical solutions for next
generation ``data driven" healthcare systems.

The workshop is intended to facilitate cross-disciplinary research
collaboration to develop innovative solutions for healthcare data
management and mining, effectively breaking the ``data silos" barrier
across the diverse health data sources. We also intend to discuss
potential of creating common datasets for future research which can be
made available publicly by addressing concerns such as privacy.

Topics of interest include but not limited to:
-Big data integration of heterogeneous health data sources
-Web-scale & cloud based medical data management systems
-NoSQL/NewSQL/Graph databases for healthcare data management
-Novel visualization of healthcare data in complex and critical medical environments
-Natural language processing and text mining techniques for health data mining
-Semantic Web techniques for multi-sourced healthcare data
-Knowledge and non-obvious relation extraction across multiple medical data sources
-Social and personalized health data mining
-Handling noisy and missing medical data
-Personal health apps, wearable and sensor data integration with traditional medical data
-Novel techniques for security and privacy of health data management and sharing
-Privacy-preserving mining techniques for healthcare data
