Description of the topics

The goal of biomedical and health informatics is to advance biomedicine and healthcare using information technologies. One of fundamental issues that healthcare/biomedical researchers encounter today is how to make use of the enormous amount of electronic healthcare/biomedical data. Healthcare knowledge discovery from the data holds great promise to improve the quality of patient care, prevent potential medical errors, and reduce healthcare cost. In addition, this may enable the practices of medicine to be (healthcare) data-driven and accelerate evidence-based medicine. Establishing a methodology for knowledge discovery and management of large amounts of health/biomedical data has therefore become a main priority in health informatics and biomedicine. To accomplish this objective, both practical applications and theoretical research will be essential.


Organized in conjunction with BIBM 2018, the goal of this workshop is to attract various researchers from both computer science, information science, biomedical informatics, biomedicine, and healthcare for sharing and exchanging their awareness of current research issues, technologies, and ideas. Papers are welcome from the following topics (but not limited to):

Paper Submission Guideline

All BHI workshop papers will be published in the main conference proceedings. The proceedings is indexed in PubMed (NLM ID is 101525347).

In order to solicit high-quality papers to the workshop, the workshop organizer will offer selected authors journal extension to have their best work published in a more extended format. The workshop organizer will select a small number of manuscripts submitted to the workshop for possible publication.

In 2018, selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version to BMC Medical Informatics & Decision Making (5 year Impact Factor is 2.587). The article processing fee will be around US$1,355. The workshop organizer already completed a final agreement with the journal.
