Call for papers for Big Data 2015

The Health Informatics Society of Australia (HISA) has issued a call for submissions for the Big Data in Biomedicine and Healthcare Conference (Big Data 2015), being held in Sydney in October.

The theme for this year is 'Big data analytics: Leveraging capability in healthcare', and will concentrate on personalised healthcare and the movement of consumer-generated and collected health data that is flowing into the health system.

Instead of having separate streams for scientific and industry/clinical presentations, they will be allocated to sessions based on themes and specialty areas.

These include:

  • Patient analytics and clinical decision making, including personal health records, the role of consumer data, predictive analytics and real-time analytics supporting clinical decision making
  • Health service management, including health system planning and service deliver, location-based data and in-memory databases
  • Population health: regional profiling, communicable diseases/epidemic management/emergency response, chronic disease trends/management, and data visualisation to inform decision making
  • Convergence medicine: genomics, wearables data, medical device, sensor-to-sensor data, bioinformatics at work
  • Data governance and ownership: data standards, privacy and security, consent models and rights to use data.

HISA's program co-chairs – Paul Cooper of SMS Management and Technology and Karin Verspoor of the University of Melbourne – said they welcome work that addresses a broad range of biomedical data from genomics to images to clinical.

Submissions close on May 15.
