Australasian Workshop on Health Informatics and Knowledge Management

The 9th Australasian Workshop on Health Informatics and Knowledge Management (HIKM 2016) will be held at the Australian National University, Canberra, 2-5 February 2016.

HIKM is an established forum for academic research in the area of computing in support of healthcare delivery and is held annually as part of Australasian Computer Science Week. The co-chairs for 2016 are Anthony Maeder, UWS and Trish Williams, ECU.

Submission of papers presenting original unpublished work should address current research topics in health informatics and knowledge management, including:

Use and integration of computing in healthcare:

  • biomedical devices and systems
  • biotechnology and bioinformatics
  • clinical decision support
  • conceptual models and architectures for health information systems
  • consumer information systems
  • design and implementation for new models of care
  • electronic health records and personal health records
  • evaluation of clinical applications and systems
  • health informatics education
  • mobile platforms and BYOD in healthcare
  • online and web interventions in healthcare

Data science and analysis for healthcare:

  • knowledge discovery, data mining and visualization
  • health information management
  • health workflow management
  • interoperability protocols, terminologies, and ontologies
  • standards for healthcare computing and health data
  • use and quality of health data collections and registries, data linkage and integration
  • modelling spatial / temporal / biological data
  • privacy / security issues
  • public and population large and big dataset predictive analysis and surveillance
  • telemedicine and remote healthcare services

Accepted papers will be included in the Proceedings of ACSW 2016, to be published by ACM. Papers should be no more than 10 pages in length, and must conform to formatting instructions for all ACSW submissions.
