Call for Papers
9th International Workshop on Knowledge Representation for Health Care (KRH4C)
10th International Workshop on Process-oriented Information Systems in Healthcare (ProHealth)
Organized as One Full Day Workshop
Acronym: KR4HC-ProHealth 2016
Vienna, Austria; June 24, 2017
In conjunction with the International Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Medicine (AIME2017)
Web site: http://banzai-deim.urv.cat/events/KR4HC-ProHealth-2017/
Formalizing medical knowledge and procedures is a means to introduce artificial intelligence in the practice of medicine. In the last years we have witnessed the increasing advances and continuous incorporation of computer technologies for knowledge representation and process modeling as a means to improve health care and to provide every time more automated and modern clinical services.
These technologies remain at the very core of other medical informatics areas such as decision support systems, e-health, m-health, smart health, simulation, clinical alarm systems, electronic health care records, patient-centered care, modeling, standardization, and quality assessment.
The Joint International Workshop KR4HC-ProHealth in 2017 is the fifth time that two separate research communities merge to address common medical issues, to discuss about new trends, and to propose solutions to health care issues by means of the integration of knowledge representation and process management technologies as a contribution of the advance of medical informatics.
Format of the Workshop
The 1-day workshop will comprise accepted long and short papers, tool presentations, and one keynote. Papers should be submitted in advance and will be reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. Informal proceedings will be available during the workshop. At least one author for each accepted paper should register for the workshop and present the paper. The selected best long (full) papers will be included in the formal proceedings, which are expected to be published as part of the LNAI Springer series, as it was done in all previous editions of the workshop.
The scope of the workshop includes, but is not limited to the following areas:
Process modeling in health care
Computer-interpretable clinical guidelines and protocols for decision support
Workflow management in healthcare
Semantic integration of health care processes with electronic medical records
Knowledge representation and ontologies for health care
Temporal knowledge representations and exploitation in health care
Facilitating knowledge-acquisition of health care
Visualization, monitoring, and mining health care processes
Knowledge extraction from health care databases and medical records
Knowledge combination, personalization, and adaptation of health care
Adherence and compliance of health care processes
Evaluation of quality and safety of care flow systems
Managing flexibility and exceptions in health care
Process optimization and simulation in health care organizations and networks
Experiences in deploying knowledge-based tools in health care
Patient empowerment in health care
Decision support technologies for multimorbid and co-morbid patients
Linking clinical care and clinical research
Lifecycle management for health care processes
Context-aware health care processes
Knowledge-based modeling, simulation and synthetization of health care
Ambient intelligence & smart processes in health care
Process interoperability & standards in health care
Process-oriented system architectures in health care
Prospective authors are invited to submit papers for presentation in any of the areas listed above. Only papers in English will be accepted. Three types of submissions are possible: (1) full papers (12 pages long) reporting mature research results, (2) position papers reporting research that may be in preliminary stage not yet been evaluated, and (3) tool reports. Position papers and tool reports should be no longer than 6 pages. Papers must present original research contributions not concurrently submitted elsewhere.
Papers should be submitted in the LNCS format. The title page must contain a short abstract, a classification of the topics covered, preferably using the list of topics above, and an indication of the submission category (regular paper, position paper, or tool report).
Papers (in PDF format) should be submitted electronically via the Easychair system.
