Call for Paper
The 1st Pacific Rim International Workshop on eHealth Mining (PeHealth)
August 22-26, 2016,
In 2014, Larry Page, CEO's Google gave a talk at TED and one of the interesting ideas: is "What if everyone made their medical records available for scientists to research? Keep your personal identity anonymous, but give researchers the data. Page thinks we could save100,000 lives annually." Additionally, Health data has 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, clinical notes, imaging reports, patient narratives etc..
To serve a better of human-being, it requires inter-disciplinary research across multiple domains of computer and medical sciences. The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers to discuss how data Mining and analytics methods can contribute to improving health quality and enhance data mining, text mining to work on problems from medicine and healthcare.
Topic areas for the workshop include (but are not limited to) the following:
Statistical analysis and characterization of healthcare data
Text mining - mining free text in electronic medical records
Visual analysis and exploration of longitudinal clinical trial data
Medical Information Search techniques
Data quality assessment and improvement: preprocessing, cleaning, missing data treatment etc.
Pattern detection and hypothesis generation from observational data
Smart health and big data
Natural language processing and text mining techniques for health data mining
Personal health apps, wearable and sensor data integration with traditional medical data

Abstract and Paper Submission
A number of high-quality workshop papers will be selected to publish in LNCS/LNAI series. Therefore, all papers submitted to the PRICAI 2016 Workshops must be formatted in Springer's Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) camera-ready style template; see the Springer's author instructions page for details. Papers (submitted and final) cannot exceed 12 pages (excluding references). Please do not include acknowledgements in submissions due to blind review. Papers must be in trouble-free, high-resolution PDF format, using Type 1 or TrueType fonts. Please only use the author-year system for your references. Please also refer to the instructions on how to prepare your paper for blind review. Electronic abstract and paper submission through the PRICAI 2016 paper submission site is required on or (preferably) before the deadline dates listed above. We cannot accept submissions by e-mail or fax. Authors will receive confirmation of receipt of their abstracts or papers, including an ID number, shortly after submission. We will contact authors again only if problems are encountered with papers.
Blind Review Instructions
Reviewing for the PRICAI Workshop papers is blind to the identities of the authors. The first page, on which the paper body begins, should include the title and abstract, but not the acknowledgments and names or affiliations of the authors. The references should include all published literature relevant to the paper, including previous works of the authors, but should not include unpublished works. When referring to one's own work, use the third person, rather than the first person. For example, say "Previously, Walsh (Walsh 2013) has shown that...," rather than "In our previous work (Walsh 2013) we have shown that...." Try to avoid including any information in the body of the paper or references that would identify the authors or their institutions. Such information may be added to the final camera-ready version for publication.
Program committee members will identify papers they are qualified to review based on the information submitted electronically (the paper's title, keywords, and abstract). Their reviewing will be done blind to the identities of the authors and their institutions.
Policy Concerning Submissions to Other Conferences or Journals
PRICAI Workshop 2016 will not accept any paper that, at the time of submission, is under review for or has already been published or accepted for publication in a journal or another conference. Authors are also required not to submit their papers elsewhere during PRICAI Workshop 2016's review period. These restrictions apply only to journals and conferences, not to workshops and similar specialized presentations with a limited audience and without archival proceedings. The restrictions also do not apply to preprints posted only on arXiv. Authors will be required to confirm that their submissions conform to these requirements at the time of submission.
Accepted papers will be allocated twelve (12) pages in the conference proceedings (with one extra page for references). Final papers found to exceed page limits and or otherwise violating the instructions to authors will not be included in the proceedings. Authors will be required to transfer copyright of their paper to Springer.
