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 2020, 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 available in IEEE Xplore Digital Library and is found in NLM Catalog (for PubMed).

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.


Paper Review Policy

The BHI workshop is the program committee (PC). The role of the workshop Chair is just to organize the committee. Each PC member is able to select papers for review based on their research interests and availability unlike the traditional review practice in which the Chair assigns papers to PC and they review the papers regardless of their interests. As a result, depending on PC's interests, some papers may not be reviewed by the PC at all. Those papers cannot be accepted and published since they are not even selected for review and thus the workshop cannot evaluate them.
