In Collaboration with:
Universitat de Vic
The purpose of the International Conference on Health Informatics is to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in the application of information and communication technologies (ICT) to healthcare and medicine in general and to the specialized support to persons with special needs in particular.
Databases, networking, graphical interfaces, intelligent decision support systems and specialized programming languages are just a few of the technologies currently used in medical informatics. Mobility and ubiquity in healthcare systems, standardization of technologies and procedures, certification, privacy are some of the issues that medical informatics professionals and the ICT industry in general need to address in order to further promote ICT in healthcare. In the case of medical rehabilitation and assistive technology the use of ICT has had important results in the enhancement of the quality of life, contributing to a full integration of all citizens in the societies they are also part of.
HEALTHINF is a forum for debating all these aspects. Furthermore, this conference is also a meeting place for those interested in understanding the human and social implications of technology, not only in healthcare systems but in other aspects of human-machine interaction such as accessibility issues.
HEALTHINF encourages authors to submit papers to one of the main topics indicated below, describing original work, including methods, techniques, advanced prototypes, applications, systems, tools or survey papers, reporting research results and/or indicating future directions. Accepted papers will be presented at the conference by one of the authors and published in the proceedings. Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance and originality. There will be both oral and poster sessions.
The proceedings will be indexed by several major international indexers.
Special sessions are also welcome. Please contact the secretariat for further information on how to propose a special session.
HEALTHINF 2013 is part of the International Joint Conference on Biomedical Engineering Systems and Tecnologies (BIOSTEC 2013) that has 3 more conferences with very strong synergies between them, namely:
- BIODEVICES: International Conference on Biomedical Electronics and Devices (http://www.biodevices.biostec.org)
- BIOINFORMATICS: International Conference on Bioinformatics Models, Methods and Algorithms (http://www.bioinformatics.biostec.org)
- BIOSIGNALS: International Conference on Bio-inspired Systems and Signal Processing (http://www.biosignals.biostec.org)
These four concurrent conferences are held in parallel and registration to one warrants delegates to attend all four.
BIOSTEC Keynote Speakers
Pedro Gómez Vilda, Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Spain
Christian Jutten, GIPSA-lab, France
Adam Kampff, Champalimaud Foundation, Portugal
All accepted papers (full, short and posters) will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on paper and on CD-ROM support.
SciTePress is member of CrossRef (http://www.crossref.org/).
A short list of presented papers will be selected so that revised and extended versions of these papers will be published by Springer-Verlag in a CCIS Series book.
The proceedings will be submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index, INSPEC, DBLP and EI.
Best paper awards will be distributed during the conference closing session.
