Advancing informatics for healthcare and healthcare applications has
become a global research priority.  There is increased effort to
transform reactive care to proactive and preventive care,
clinic-centric to patient-centered practice, training-based
interventions to globally aggregated evidence, and episodic response
to continuous well-being monitoring and maintenance.

IHIC 2013 aims to provide a forum for health informatics researchers
and practitioners to discuss fundamental principles, algorithms and
applications of intelligent data acquisition, processing, and analysis
of healthcare data. IHIC 2013 is particularly interested in papers
discussing innovative healthcare informatics applications, case
studies, and information and knowledge management techniques, in which
the approaches are accompanied by an in-depth computational evaluation
with real world data.  IHIC 2013 encourages broad participation from
researchers and professionals from a diverse range of disciplines
including medical informatics, bioinformatics, electronic health
records, epidemiology, health statistics, health data mining, public
health, health economics, health-related behavioral studies, computer
science, and information systems, among others.

The conference will be held in China and expects global as well as
Asian participation.


Topics of interest for the conference include, but are not limited to:

I. Information sharing, integration and extraction
   - Patient education, learning and involvement
   - Consumer and clinician health information needs, seeking, sharing, and use
   - Healthcare knowledge abstraction, classification and summarization
   - Effective Information retrieval for healthcare applications
   - Natural language processing and text mining for biomedical and clinical
     applications, EHR, clinical notes, and health consumer texts
   - Intelligent systems and text mining for electronic health records
   - Health and clinical data integrity, privacy and representativeness for
     secondary use of data

II. Clinical practice and training
    - Virtual patient modeling for learning, practicing and demonstrating care
    - Medical recommender systems
    - Text mining clinical text for innovative applications (patient monitoring,
      recommender systems for clinicians, adverse effects monitoring)
    - Mental and physical health data integration
    - Computer-aided diagnosis
    - Computational support for patient-centered and evidence-based care
    - Disease profiling and personalized treatment
    - Visual analytics for healthcare
    - Transdisciplinary healthcare through IT

III. Mining clinical and medical data
     - Data augmentation and combination for evidence-based clinical decision-
     - Biomarker discovery and biomedical data mining

       semantic web, workflows, etc)
     - Intelligent Medical data management
     - Computational intelligence methodologies for healthcare

IV. Assistive, persuasive and intelligent devices for medical care and monitoring
    - Assistive devices and tools for individuals with special needs
    - Intelligent medical devices and sensors
    - Continuous monitoring and streaming technologies for healthcare
    - Computer support for surgical intervention
    - Localized data for improving emergency care
    - Localization, persuasion and mobile approaches to increasing healthy
      life styles and better self-care
    - Virtual and augmented reality for healthcare
