HIMS'16 - The 2nd International Conference on Health Informatics and Medical Systems

Featured Keynotes

Opening Remarks

Featured Tutorials

Call for Papers

You are invited to submit a paper for consideration. All accepted papers will be published in printed conference books/proceedings (each with a unique international ISBN number) and will also be made available online. The proceedings will be indexed in science citation databases that track citation frequency/data. In addition, like prior years, extended versions of selected papers (about 40%) will appear in journals and edited research books; publishers include, Springer, Elsevier, BMC, and others). See the web link below for a small subset of such publications: (some of these books and journal special issues have already received the top 25% downloads in their respective fields and/or identified as "Highly Accessed" by publishers and/or science citation index trackers.) Click Here for more details

The conference is composed of a number of tracks, tutorials, sessions, workshops, poster and panel discussions; all will be held simultaneously, same location and dates: July 25-28, 2016. 

Prologue: Health Informatics and Medical Systems is an important area that is at the intersection of information science, computer science, social science, behavioral science and health care. This field is mainly concerned with the resources, devices, and methods required to optimize the acquisition, storage, retrieval, processing and use of information in health and biomedicine. Health informatics is driven by computers, information and communication systems. It is a multi-disciplinary field that covers a wide spectrum of sub-fields. It combines the problem solving skills of computer scientists with health care professionals and health care givers. The list of topics of interest that appears below is by no means exhaustive.
