Call for Papers

HIS’s scope includes:
1. Medical/health/biomedicine information resources, such as patient medical records, devices and equipment, software and tools to capture, store, retrieve, process, analyse, optimize the use of information in the health domain;
2. Data management, data mining, and knowledge discovery (in health domain), all of which play a key role in decision making, management of public health, examination of standards, privacy and security issues;
3. Development of new architectures and applications for health information systems.

Short papers (Opinion papers) describe a well-founded new approach to a research topic, however, the research itself may be in its early stages of development, and plausible expected results or observed preliminary results should be reported, but no final results are required.

We solicit your submissions in English for unpublished research papers on any aspect of the health information sciences and systems.
