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 IRI-HI 2011 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 (6 pages), short research papers (4 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 Press. 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.
