The advancement in technology and computational science influenced a
wide range of fields, including research in clinical leading to health
informatics as emerging vital research area which is attracting more
attention in academia and industry. Health informatics combines
computational science and the clinical world for better treatment of
patients; it deals with resources, devices, and methodologies required
for optimizing the acquisition, storage, maintenance, retrieval, and
use of healthcare information and resources for effective diagnosis
and treatment of patients.

The target of this research track is to bring together professionals,
researchers and practitioners in the area of health informatics to
present, discuss, share the latest finding in the field, and exchange
ideas that address real-world problems with real-world solutions.

Topics covered by HI-BI-BI 2012 include but are not limited to work in
progress as well as cutting-edge and novel findings on the latest
trends and developments in health informatics, encompassing areas such
as:

* Clinical and hospital human resource management and performance analysis
* Computer aided diagnosis.
* Computational biomedicine, genomics, proteomics,
transcriptomics, metabolimics, sociogenomics
* Controlled and optimized utilization of resources
* Data analysis and disease biomarker prediction
* Data mining and machine learning techniques in health informatics.
* Drug design, disease diagnosis and control
* e-health and web-based information services
* Evaluation and use of information technology in healthcare
* Healthcare applications of mobile and pervasive technologies
* Human-computer interaction
* Future developments in technologies and applications
* Intelligent Health Information Systems & Decision Support Systems
* Integration and sharing of heterogeneous health information systems
* Integration and sharing of heterogeneous health data sources
* Information and image retrieval
* Language parsing methods in biomedicine
* Modelling, simulation and evaluation of healthcare services
* Mobile solutions for sharing information in healthcare services
* Patient tracking and monitoring: spatio-temporal models
* Privacy protection and data security in health informatics systems
* Process management and collaborative work
* Reuse in Health Information System development and maintenance
* Signal processing and streaming databases
* Spread and control of epidemics
* Social network modelling and analysis in health informatics
* User interfaces and visualization for health informatics systems

We encourage researchers to submit full research papers (8 pages),
short research papers (6 pages), and posters (2 pages) reporting work
in progress. All accepted papers from the three types of submissions
will be included in the proceedings to be published by IEEE CPS. Full
and short papers will be scheduled for presentation during the
conference. Posters will be included in the poster session, which is
open for discussion with participants.
Extended versions of selected papers will be invited for journal publication.

Papers should be submitted to the Conference Submission System. If Web
submission is not possible, manuscripts should be sent as an
attachment via email to: ozyer (at) etu (dot) edu (dot) tr or tnjarada
(at) ucalgary (dot) ca by April 15, 2012. The attachment must be in
PDF format.
