FHIES 2013 — Call for Papers (now closed)

The Venetian Macau

Scope

FHIES seeks contributions from both the solution domain (engineering methods) and the problem domain (healthcare and health informatics). Solution-domain papers should present their methods in the context of a concrete application in healthcare, while problem-domain papers should be devised to educate the methods community about unique challenges and characteristics of the healthcare domain. Submissions should seek to inform and further the development, adaptation, evaluation and adoption of formally based and rigorous engineering methods in health care systems. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

Submissions

We solicit high quality full submissions in the following categories:

We also invite short submissions for special sessions:

Submissions should be in English, prepared in the LNCS format (see Springer’s website for details), and all page limits are measured in this format. Full submissions (those in the first four categories above) will be judged on the basis of originality, contribution to the field, technical and presentation quality, and relevance to the symposium; student papers will be judged on clarity of description and the promise of interesting results; tool demonstrations, BOF proposals, and extended abstracts will be judged on relevance to the symposium. All papers will be peer-reviewed by at least three program committee members. Papers should be submitted via EasyChair. Submission constitutes a commitment for at least one author to attend the symposium and present the paper, if it is accepted.

Publication

All accepted submissions will be distributed in a technical report at the Symposium. After the event, postproceedings will be published in Springer LNCS. Authors of all accepted full submissions will be invited to revise their papers, in order to resolve any larger issues raised during reviewing. Authors of accepted short submissions will be invited to submit full papers for review and LNCS publication too. In addition, a special issue of a suitable journal is planned, focusing on the overall objectives of FHIES: this will have an open call for contributions.
