Event description:

Advancing Informatics for healthcare and healthcare applications has become an international research priority. There is increased effort to transform reactive care to proactive and preventive care, clinic-centric to patient-centered practice, training-based interventions to globally aggregated evidence, and episodic response to continuous well-being monitoring and maintenance. ICSH 2015 (International Conference for Smart Health 2015) is intended to provide a forum for the growing smart health research community to discuss the principles, algorithms and applications of intelligent data acquisition, processing, and analysis of healthcare data. The conference proceedings will be published by Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). The electronic conference proceedings will be provided at the time of registration. The published proceedings will be sent to each registrant later by organizers. Selected papers will also be considered for IEEE Intelligent Systems and ACM Transactions on Management Information Systems. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Important Dates: Paper Submission: SEPTEMBER 6, 2015(EXTENDED) Notification of acceptance: SEPTEMBER 26, 2015 Conference dates: NOVEMBER 17-18, 2015 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Topics of Interest for the conference include, but are not limited to (see the conference website at for additional suggestions): I.
